Do eating eggs cause increased risk of cardiovascular disease?

Do eating eggs cause increased risk of cardiovascular disease?  No.  A meta-analysis (a combination of many research studies) has shown that over an average of 12 years, egg consumption is not associated with an increase number in cardiovascular events (heart attack or stroke). In fact, eating more than one egg a day (on average) is associated with an 11% less chance of coronary artery disease. The researchers are unsure if those who eat eggs dail have other healthful habits (more likely to exercise? less likely to smoke?)
