Deadly Eggs

If you eat six eggs a week, you're fine; but seven or more eggs per week increases your risk of death by 23% (not 24% or 22%, mind you). So says a new study.

But those readers who scroll down to the very end of the article find this:
Men who ate the most eggs also were older, fatter, ate more vegetables but less breakfast cereal, and were more likely to drink alcohol, smoke and less likely to exercise -- all factors that can affect the risk of heart attack and death.
I haven't read the whole study, but I'd imagine that those latter factors would affect the results.
