Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of mortality globally and is strongly influenced by dietary risk factors. The aim was to assess the association between egg consumption and risk of CVD risk/mortality, including coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, and heart failure. MEDLINE, Embase, and Web of Science databases were searched through April 2020 for prospective studies. Two independent reviewers screened and extracted the data through standardized methods. Size effects were… 
Egg consumption and risk of cardiovascular events among Iranians: results from Isfahan Cohort Study (ICS)
TLDR
It is suggested that higher egg consumption is not associated with increased risk of MI, ICHD, stroke, and CVD among Iranians and larger studies with longer duration of follow-up are warranted to explore these associations in populations with higher Egg consumption.
Egg and cholesterol intake, apolipoprotein E4 phenotype and risk of venous thromboembolism: findings from a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
In middle-aged and older Finnish men, egg or cholesterol intakes were not associated with future VTE risk and the apolipoprotein E4 (apoE4) phenotype did not modify the associations.
Egg consumption and risk of all-cause and cause-specific mortality in an Italian adult population
TLDR
Among Italian adults, high egg consumption leads to an increased risk of all-cause and CVD mortality, with the risk being evident even at the recommended intake of 2–4 eggs per week.
Egg Consumption and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: a Critical Review
TLDR
The majority of existing evidence supports that assertion that moderate egg consumption of up to one egg per day in otherwise healthy individuals is not associated with a higher risk of ASCVD.
Egg and Dietary Cholesterol Consumption and Mortality Among Hypertensive Patients: Results From a Population-Based Nationwide Study
TLDR
The findings do not support the view that hypertensive patients should avoid whole egg consumption for the purpose of restricting dietary cholesterol intake, and higher consumption of eggs and egg-sourced dietary cholesterol was associated with lower mortality among the enrolled Chinese hypertension patients.
Nutritional Viewpoints on Eggs and Cholesterol
TLDR
Character features in Japanese people whose dietary pattern is distinct from that of the US population are illustrated, suggesting that egg is a healthy and cost-efficient food worldwide.
Daily intake of up to two eggs for 11 weeks does not affect the cholesterol balance of Chinese young adults
TLDR
It is demonstrated that intake of up to two eggs a day had little effect on biomarkers of CVDs in young, healthy Chinese college students and provided useful evidence for the dietary guidelines regarding egg consumption.
Whole egg consumption and cognitive function among US older adults.
TLDR
Regression analyses found that neither whole egg consumption status, nor daily intake quantity was associated with cognitive test scores, and future studies with longitudinal or experimental design are warranted to examine the possible link between egg consumption and cognition in older adults.

The possible relationship between dietary cholesterol and cardiac outcomes has been scrutinized for decades. However, recent reviews of the literature have suggested that dietary cholesterol is not a
Egg consumption in relation to risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
This meta-analysis suggests that egg consumption is not associated with the risk of CVD and cardiac mortality in the general population, however, egg consumption may be associated with an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes among the generalpopulation and CVD comorbidity among diabetic patients.

TLDR
Infrequent egg consumption does not seem to influence the risk of CVD in male physicians, and egg consumption was positively related to mortality, more strongly so in diabetic subjects, in the study population.

TLDR
Among Chinese adults, a moderate level of egg consumption (up to <1 egg/day) was significantly associated with lower risk of CVD, largely independent of other risk factors.

TLDR
No association was found between egg consumption and the incidence of CVD after adjusting for age, sex, total energy intake, adherence to the Mediterranean food pattern and other cardiovascular risk factors.
Egg consumption and risk of cardiovascular disease: three large prospective US cohort studies, systematic review, and updated meta-analysis
TLDR
Results from the three cohorts and from the updated meta-analysis show that moderate egg consumption (up to one egg per day) is not associated with cardiovascular disease risk overall, and is associated with potentially lower cardiovascular Disease risk in Asian populations.

TLDR
Egg intake had no association with CHD and total mortality, whereas was associated with lower risk of mortality from stroke, and a reverse association with stroke mortality was observed.

TLDR
E egg consumption is independently associated with low incidence/mortality of CAD, which may be derived from the comparisons of the fifth versus first quintile egg consumption.

TLDR
Daily egg consumption was not associated with risk of MI or any stroke type in either men or women or with HF in women, and consumption of eggs ≥1 time/d, but not less frequent consumption, was associated with an elevated risk of HF in men.
