That's the conclusion of two unrelated studies that just came out. A 14-year study in Japan on 9,300 people found that women who ate one egg per day were 22 percent more likely to die than those who ate only a couple eggs a week - regardless of factors such as age, smoking habits and body weight. And those who ate two or more eggs a day showed a still higher death risk. Hmmmm. Also, "women who get a lot of their dietary protein from vegetables [rather than animal products] are at reduced risk for having their gallbladder removed. As reported in the American Journal of Epidemiology, the researchers studied data from some 121,000 women participating in the Nurses' Health Study. Over 20 years of follow-up, 7831 women underwent gallbladder removal, also called cholecystectomy."
