'An egg a day' advertisement is misleading
The advertisements promoting 'an egg a day' are misleading and prople with high cholestrol and diabetes should consult a doctor before deciding to consume eggs.

HEART CARE Foundation of India has warned that the promotional advertisement by the National Egg Coordination Committee (NECC) is misleading the public. Dietary cholesterol raises total serum cholesterol though it may be a less important contributor than saturated fats.

It may be a scientific fact that consumption of up to one egg per day (containing about 213 mg of cholesterol per egg) does not appear to substantially influence the risk of coronary heart disease or stroke among men and women but only without pre-existing diabetes mellitus or hypercholesterolemia.

No one should consume egg without their doctor’s clearance as one egg per day in patient with diabetes or with high cholesterol may be harmful for the heart. To this effect, the published reference work done by Dr. Hu, FB and group at the Department of Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, published in the Journal of Medical association can be used as a reference to find out more on the subject.
