For the study, a team of researchers analyzed data from 3,654 people that were monitored for over 15 years. The analysis showed that those who ate 2 to 4 eggs a week had a 49% lower risk of developing AMD than those who ate less than 1 egg per week.

Bamini Gopinath, PhD, lead investigator and associate professor at the University of Sydney School of Medicine, comments: “The findings of this study are therefore important as they indicate a significant and independent association between the moderate consumption of eggs and lower risk of developing late AMD. However, there does appear to be a threshold to the benefit of egg consumption in relation to AMD risk as no added benefit was observed in those who consumed an average of one or more eggs per day.”
