The History of Limiting Eggs
Despite being a nutritious whole food, in 1968, the American Heart Association announced that all individuals should eat no more than three eggs per week due to their cholesterol content. Because eggs contain cholesterol, they have been labeled as an unhealthy food that will contribute to raised LDL (bad) cholesterol and therefore, result in putting one at higher risk for heart disease.
In 2015, the restriction of egg intake was eliminated from U.S. dietary guidelines since there is lacking evidence that cholesterol from egg consumption truly causes heart disease. Many mainstream recommendations urge to consume cereal or oatmeal for breakfast due to being “heart healthy” despite the fact that those selections raise blood sugar (while eggs do not), but studies have shown that eating two eggs for breakfast in place of oatmeal reflects no change or increase in biomarkers related to heart disease. 
In fact, more than 50 years of research has shown that the cholesterol in eggs has very little impact on LDL cholesterol levels, and is not associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk. Some of these studies divided trial participants into two groups—the first group ate one to three whole eggs every day, and the other group did not consume eggs whatsoever.
