Egg consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes: a meta-analysis of prospective studies.

Consistent consumption of eggs may increase an individual’s chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

This study evaluated the correlation between egg intake and type 2 diabetes risk. Researchers analyzed data obtained from 12 published literatures on the subject. They found out that subjects living in the United States who regularly consumed more than 3 eggs per week had 39% higher risk of developing diabetes mellitus than those who rarely or did not eat eggs. The findings of this meta-analysis suggest that high intake of egg is associated with elevated type 2 diabetes risk in US adults.
