Although eggs are high in dietary cholesterol, no studies have ever linked dietary cholesterol with high blood cholesterol levels in people. In fact the cholesterol in eggs is of the HDL variety (the good kind) and not the LDL that increase health risks. Weight and activity have a more direct relationship to blood cholesterol levels. I am currently eating 3 whole eggs daily and my cholesterol levels (which were never in the high range) have gone down with my increase in activity and my decreasing weight.

Here is a link with information that supports the above. Untitled Document
