How many eggs a week are too many?

An article from the Cleveland Clinic tells us there is no current recommendation as to how many eggs are too many and then goes on to tell us that too many eggs are bad.

I think if you’re suffering from heart disease then you need to keep a close watch on your cholesterol with your doctor. Your test results should be the determining factor as to what you eat and how much.

“There is no current recommendation on how many eggs you should consume each week,” says Zumpano. “Research indicates that total saturated fat contributes more to LDL (bad) cholesterol than dietary cholesterol.”
She points out that egg whites are safe and a good source of protein. It is egg yolks that have the cholesterol and saturated fat you’re trying to avoid.
