A man has died trying to eat 50 eggs after making a bet with his mate.

Subhash Yada from India was dared by a mate to eat the enormous amount of eggs and he'd receive Rs 2,000 (AUD$34) if he completed it. The 42-year-old in Uttar Pradesh's Jaunpur district took on the bet and managed to get 41 eggs into the challenge before collapsing. He was in the middle of consuming the 42nd egg when he fell unconscious. Yada was rushed to hospital however died a short time later. His sickness sparked an investigation into how and why he collapsed from egg consumption.

Medizzy reports that the overwhelming amount of eggs Yada ate disturbed his digestive system. This resulted in impaired cardiac function, leading to Yada’s death. Part of the cardiac dysfunctioning was due to the high consumption of egg yolks, which are very high in cholesterol.

Consultant Cardiologist at University College London, Professor Riyaz Patel, added: "For most people, eggs can be eaten in moderation as part of a balanced diet unless they have been advised not to for a specific medical or dietary reason."

At the moment, it’s not clear if anyone has been arrested in connection with the incident
