A relationship between egg consumption and the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been suggested to be present exclusively among patients with type2 diabetes. Aims: To assess the association between egg consumption and CVD in a large Mediterranean cohort where approximately 50\% of participants had type 2 diabetes. Methods: We prospectively followed 7216 participants (55-80 years old) at high cardiovascular risk from the PREDIMED (PREvencion con DIeta MEDiterranea) study for a mean of 5.8 years. All participants were initially free of CVD. Yearly repeated measurements of dietary information with a validated 137-item food-frequency questionnaire were used to assess egg consumption and other dietary exposures. The endpoint was the rate of major cardiovascular events (myocardial infarction, stroke or death from cardiovascular causes).||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/35480||ISSN:||0261-5614||DOI:||10.1016/j.clnu.2016.06.009||Source:||Clinical Nutrition [ISSN 0261-5614], v. 36 (4), p. 1015-1021, (Agosto 2017)|
