Exploring Eggs and Heart Health

The Cross County Cardiology education team is thrilled to share intriguing insights from the latest research in heart health and nutrition! 🍳❤️ Dive into the details with us as we explore a compelling study about eggs and cholesterol.

Eggs are often at the center of dietary discussions, especially concerning heart health. The recent PROSPERITY study, led by Dr. Nina Nouhravesh, investigated whether regular egg consumption impacts cholesterol levels—crucial indicators of heart health.

This study involved 140 individuals over 50 at high risk for heart disease, examining the effects of eating 12 fortified eggs weekly compared to consuming fewer than two. After four months, results showed minimal differences in cholesterol levels between the two groups. Those who consumed more eggs experienced slight improvements in cholesterol and other markers of heart health.

Dr. Nouhravesh highlighted that while significant differences weren’t observed, the study found no adverse effects from regular egg consumption. This suggests that fortified eggs might be safer for heart health than previously believed, indicating that eggs could be a viable option for those concerned with heart disease.

This research contributes valuable knowledge to the ongoing dialogue about diet and heart health, suggesting that eating eggs might not be as detrimental as once thought. Stay informed and make healthier choices with insights from the Cross County Cardiology education team.

From the Cross County Cardiology Education Team: The Risks of Smoking Marijuana

Hey everyone! Today, we're talking about something important: how smoking marijuana might affect your heart. A study shared by the Journal of the American Heart Association looked at health surveys from 2016 to 2020 to find out more about this.

Main Points:

  1. Risks of Smoking Marijuana:

    • People who smoke marijuana a lot could have a higher chance of getting heart attacks and strokes.
    • If you never smoked tobacco but smoke marijuana every day, you're more likely to have a heart attack or stroke.
  2. How People Use Marijuana:

    • About 3 out of 4 people in the study said they smoke it, but others might vape, eat, or drink products with marijuana in them.
  3. What the Experts Say:

    • Just like tobacco smoke, marijuana smoke can release harmful stuff that's not good for your lungs or heart.
    • With more states making marijuana legal to use for fun, more people are trying it, and doctors are seeing more health problems related to it.
    • The study couldn't say for sure that smoking marijuana causes heart disease, but it's something to think about, especially since a lot of people are using it.
  4. Looking Ahead:

    • The government is thinking about changing how they classify marijuana because it might have some medical benefits and might not be as risky as other drugs.
  5. Be Careful:

    • The study's authors warn that smoking marijuana could lead to health problems that we could avoid.
    • They're worried we might face a health crisis if we're not careful, just like with tobacco smoking.

What This Means:

Heart disease is a big deal in the United States, being the number one cause of death. With more people using marijuana, it's important to know it might not be as safe as some think. Even smoking it once a week has some risks.

Talk to Your Doctor:

If you're using marijuana, it's a good idea to talk about it with your doctor. They might not know all the risks either, but it's important to have an open conversation.


It's not great to put smoke in your lungs, no matter what you're smoking. And just because something is natural, doesn't always mean it's safe.

Stay informed and take care of your heart!
