On this Research Roundup, Dr. Brianna Stubbs discusses the culprit behind a news story that generated a health controversy recently.

What do you think the media touted as the next food ready to knock years off your life? This time it’s not cakes and soda, it's not red meat, it's not alcohol...it’s the humble egg.

Dr. Brianna Stubbs unpacks the study behind the batch of fear-mongering headlines. The study in question was published in a well respected journal called JAMA. The study is titled: Associations of Dietary Cholesterol or Egg Consumption With Incident Cardiovascular Disease and Mortality.

After discussing the controversial JAMA study, Dr. Brianna references two additional papers to help paint a more balanced picture around egg consumption:

  1. Egg consumption and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke: dose-response meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies.
  2. Eggs enriched in omega-3 fatty acids and alterations in lipid concentrations in plasma and lipoproteins and in blood pressure.

What's the truth about eggs? Tune in and find out!
