In Reply Dr Keyserling and colleagues commented that the observed associations of dietary cholesterol or egg consumption with incident cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality in our study might be partly attributable to residual confounding due to unmeasured health consciousness.1 We agree that by adjusting for several available proxies for health consciousness, we may not have fully eliminated the related confounding.
