In France, national nutrition guidelines refute the idea that you should not eat more than two eggs a week: "You can eat them regularly".

The new study is an observational study, so it doesn't prove that cholesterol caused the increased risk of heart disease that the researchers documented. Participants were followed for an average of 17.5 years. One Chinese study even found that having an egg a day might lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes, according to the American Heart Association (AHA).

However, she told Newsweek, "Factoring dietary cholesterol together with egg consumption was somewhat "stacking the deck" statistically speaking", but added that the study was still "very well-designed".

The results from this latest study are a stark contrast from research released previous year which found eating an egg a day could do wonders for your health.

Based on the study, people should keep dietary cholesterol intake low by reducing cholesterol-rich foods such as eggs and red meat in their diet.

"The fact that studies outside the USA appear to show favorable relationships with egg intake and cardiovascular risk may speak to the importance of what other foods are consumed with eggs as part of the overall diet pattern, as recent research has demonstrated the importance of separating eggs from other foods to understand their independent impact on health outcomes", Rubin said in a statement.

The findings suggest it may be time to re-evaluate the current US dietary guidelines that no longer limit cholesterol or eggs, the researchers say.

Researchers at Northwestern University analyzed 30,000 US adults over three decades and found that eating just three to four eggs per week was tied to increased cholesterol and a 6 percent higher risk of heart disease.

Eggs are a leading source of dietary cholesterol, which once was thought to be strongly related to blood cholesterol levels and heart disease.

But more recent dietary guidelines have loosened the reins on dietary cholesterol.

Eggs, a staple of the American diet, have been cast once again as a villain. Most recently, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans stated that cholesterol wasn't a concern, but that individuals should "also eat as little dietary cholesterol as possible". That's because the average U.S. adult now gets 300 milligrams of cholesterol a day and eats three or four eggs a week - and their data indicates it's bad for them. "There is no safe or unsafe amount [to eat] but I do like the saying an egg a day is OK". Americans now consume an estimated 280 eggs per person, per year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Diet data were collected using food frequency questionnaires or by taking a diet history. By the end of the follow-up period, the group had experienced 5,400 cardiovascular events and 6,132 deaths from any cause. The findings were published Friday in JAMA.

However, though flawed, Cho says these studies are important for a better understanding of nutrition research.

"We want to remind people there is cholesterol in eggs, specifically yolks, and this has a harmful effect", said Allen. "These new findings provide one piece of evidence", Allen says.

"The old advice still stands, eggs in moderation are absolutely fine as a useful source of protein". "This is the diet we should be adopting".
