Consuming more than two eggs on a daily basis can increase your risk of developing heart-related diseases, according to reports from a recent study published in the American Medical Association.
The reports claimed that daily consumption of more than two eggs increases risk of cardiovascular diseases because it contains cholesterol which can cause heart issues.

One large egg contains nearly 200 milligrams of cholesterol, roughly the same amount as an eight-ounce steak, according to the US Department of Agriculture.
Consuming more than 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day was linked with a 17 per cent higher risk of cardiovascular disease and an 18 per cent higher risk of death.
“Eating several eggs a week is reasonable but I recommend people to avoid eating three egg omelettes every day,” Tucker stated.
