JAMA March 19, 2019 1 February, 2020

Cholesterol is a common nutrient in the human diet and eggs are a major source of dietary cholesterol. People who eat 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day, have a higher risk of both heart disease and early death compared with those who eat fewer eggs, new study published in the medical journal JAMA finds.
Eggs, specially the yolk, are a major source of dietary cholesterol, a single large egg contains about 186 milligrams of cholesterol. Consuming an additional 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day was associated with a 3.2% higher risk of heart disease and a 4.4% higher risk of early death.
