The Key Recommendation from 2010 Dietary Guidelines to limit consumption of dietary cholesterol to 300 mg per day, is not included in the 2015 edition. Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015~2020 released in January 2016, omitted the limit for cholesterol intake in general population; but this change does not suggest that dietary cholesterol is no longer important to consider when building healthy eating patterns. The main shift of concept in recent dietary guidelines is that limitation of intake of single macronutrient should not help to promote health; controlling and recommendation for a healthy eating pattern is important for health and for the prevention of any diseases. In Korean dietary survey, eggs are the main resources for dietary cholesterol in Koreans. However, there are recent studies regarding no association between the egg consumption and serum cholesterol level and cardiovascular disease risk. In this review, I will focus on the 2015 recommendation on dietary cholesterol and fat intake. Furthermore, I will review the literature on the evidences for the egg consumption and cardiovascular disease risk.
Key Words: Dietary cholesterol, Egg, Lipid level
