Now, fortunately not every scientist believes this. The study is controversial as many variables are not taken into consideration. This is what certain researchers would call bad science.

My opinion: I think sugar and refined carbohydrates are contributing more to the build up of plaques in our arteries, which I already discussed here. And again, why would we blame a food (eggs) we've been eating for much longer time than sugars and carbohydrates? We adapted to eat fat/cholesterol, but not sugars, especially in the quantities we consume today.
