    Finlandians are the least egg eating people in the world ,and  they have the highest cardiovascular,disorder  in the world .

    They barely eat vegetables,  remember they have long winters and long summers so they don't have that many choices as we have.

    the short answer is no. the long answer is dietary cholesterol has little to do with blood cholesterol levels. more than 70% of your cholesterol in the body is PRODUCED BY YOUR BODY,and for very specific purposes. cholesterol is used to repair tears in arteries when you dont have enough collagen in your body. hence the the fact they get blamed for being the reason you suffer heart diesease. in actual fact, your poor diet causing the artery tears and lack of collagen production means without cholesterol you would probably be dead within a year because there would be no repairs at all. cholesterol is also in every cell of your trillion cell body by necessity, is used to form new connections in the brain, do repairs of course, and does a host of other functions that quite frankly you would never survive without. its like turning up to every fire, seeing a fire truck outside every time and saying; 'firetrucks must cause fires'. of course if you eat excessively high cholesterol foods its not going to be healthy. just like if you only eat broccoli every day its not going to be healthy. if your diet is a variety of fresh, non processed, organic food; there is a high likelyhood that you'll be 10 times healthy than what you are now while blaming the poor innocent egg.

     I don't think so. I have heart problems, 6 stents, and lots of meds. I eat 4 to 6 eggs a week, and my last blood test, was fine. I cut the statens in half. 80mg to 40, and coenzime Q10 100mg every day.
