'Ever since the cholesterol theory of heart disease was created during the 1970s and 1980s, eggs have been vilified as a potential threat for not only heart disease, but more recently even diabetes.
Official institutional warnings of egg consumption continue, even as the cholesterol theory of heart disease is crumbling with the emerging unbiased science proving otherwise.
Diabetes type 2 has become epidemic in cultures that have embraced western processed food diets. There have been some epidemiological surveys that have managed to associate egg consumption with an increased risk of diabetes.
Those seem to be publicized more than studies that have the different conclusions. Finland has recently shown other conclusions with both a large, unbiased epidemiological study and a follow-up study that analyzed metabolic features among egg eaters.
Both concluded that those who enjoy eggs in their diet have less risk of diabetes.
An epidemiological survey study inspires the often repeated adage “association does not mean causation.” But association serves as an impetus for “further studies” that become laboratory and clinical in nature.
The following two studies illustrate this very dynamic, both within the same Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease (KIHD) Risk Factor Study cohort.
In 2015, researchers of the University of Eastern Finland concluded their tracking of 2,342 men, aged 42-60, from the KIHD cohort assembled during the early 1980s to analyze dietary effects on chronic diseases and heart health.
The title of their report that was published by the The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in April of 2015 is Egg consumption and risk of incident type 2 diabetes in men: the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study.
Records of medical examinations taken at the four and 11-year points, and at this cohort’s 20-year endpoint (2006-2008), were made available for researchers worldwide. So far the KIHD project has been used for 500 international studies.
After already using this cohort to determined that egg consumption did not create cardiovascular disease, the Eastern Finland University researchers decided to analyze the glucose measurements and insulin resistance markers taken from examinations every few years until the cohort’s endpoint 20 years later.
Those who were scrutinized for metabolic disorders, insulin resistance, and serum glucose levels, all markers of pre-diabetes and diabetes 2, consumed one egg a day on average. This is a higher egg count than many other similar studies.''
