BMJ’s scrambled message on eggs and heart disease: a recipe for rotten news coverage

BMJ’s public relations team is at it again: putting overstated headlines on news releases about observational nutrition research that can’t support the claims.

This time it was on a Chinese study, published in the journal BMJ Heart, purporting to show that “Daily egg consumption may reduce cardiovascular disease.” They even quantified the exact percentage that eggs may reduce your risk in the release’s subheadline: “Having an egg a day could reduce risk of stroke by 26%.”
