7 Negative Health Impacts of Eggs

High cholesterol content

Eggs are relatively high in dietary cholesterol. For individuals with specific health conditions like familial hypercholesterolemia or diabetes, excessive consumption of dietary cholesterol may impact blood cholesterol levels.

Food allergies

Some individuals may have allergies to eggs, which can lead to allergic reactions ranging from mild symptoms like skin rashes or digestive issues to severe reactions like anaphylaxis. People with egg allergies should avoid eggs or products containing eggs.

Salmonella risk

Raw or undercooked eggs can be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria, which can cause food poisoning. Proper cooking and handling of eggs can reduce the risk of Salmonella infection.

Sensitivity to egg proteins

Some individuals may have sensitivities or intolerances to specific proteins found in eggs, such as ovalbumin or ovomucoid. These sensitivities can result in digestive discomfort or allergic-like symptoms.

Increased risk of cardiovascular disease

While research has shown that dietary cholesterol from eggs may not significantly impact blood cholesterol levels in most individuals, some studies have suggested a potential link between high egg consumption and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. 

Dietary restrictions

Eggs are not suitable for individuals following specific diets such as vegan or vegetarian diets. Additionally, people with certain cultural, religious, or ethical beliefs may choose to avoid eggs.

Cooking methods and additional ingredients

 The healthiness of eggs can also be influenced by cooking methods and the ingredients used. For example, frying eggs in unhealthy oils or adding excessive salt, butter, or high-fat condiments can diminish their health benefits.
