Intake of up to 3 Eggs per Day Is Associated with Changes in HDL Function and Increased Plasma Antioxidants in Healthy, Young Adults

Sorry, just the Background etc is accessible.

[bitter sarcasm on] Thank goodness I listened to those nutrition experts and didn’t eat any eggs because of the cholesterol…[sarcasm off]
Actually, I’ve eaten at least 2 eggs every day for about the past 10 years.

From the conclusion:
"Intake of 1 egg/d was sufficient to increase HDL function and large-LDL particle concentration; however, intake of 2–3 eggs/d supported greater improvements in HDL function as well as increased plasma carotenoids. Overall, intake of ≤3 eggs/d favored a less atherogenic LDL particle profile, improved HDL function, and increased plasma antioxidants in young, healthy adults."
