Egg or Cholesterol Intake in Older Adults Not Linked to Risk for Type 2 Diabetes

Eggs were bad. Now they are good.
Among older adults with limited egg intake, there is no apparent association between egg consumption or dietary cholesterol and an increased risk for incident type 2 diabetes, according to the results of a prospective study reported in the August issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

"Type 2 diabetes (T2D) remains an important public health issue in the United States," write Luc Djoussé, from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, and colleagues. "There are limited and inconsistent data on the association between egg consumption and fasting glucose or incident diabetes. We assessed the association between egg intake and incident diabetes in older adults."
Still think they have any idea what they are talking about?
