It’s been floating around for a long time that chicken eggs are bad for you – mainly the yolk. Wicked high in cholesterol so to say. Perhaps, I will get high cholesterol one day. All in all, can someone prove to me that eating an egg a day will promote heart disease or stroke? Or even, just provide me which reputable study/research made a point that eggs is bad for the heart?
I don’t like popping pills to get all my nutrients. I like to enjoy eating my nutrients. Eggs are a good source of nutrients. Of course, if you are paranoid about everything.. don’t eat eggs.
Eggs are not the only thing I eat raw. I don’t believe there is anything wrong with eating anything raw. It certainly does expose yourself to viruses and bacteria. I’ve eaten raw chicken before from parts that were under cooked. It has not killed me!! Salmonella my butt! The way I see it, exposure builds my immune system. If I live in a bubble, I will get sick outside the bubble.
There is a nutrient in egg yolks that you will have a hard time finding in other foods. Choline. This is an essential nutrient. For the brain, it improves brain function. Signs of choline deficiency are fatty liver and hemorrhagic kidney necrosis. I certainly don’t want my brain to deteriorate! Hence, I will continue eating my eggs! Better yet, I don’t want deteriorating eyes. No Cataract! No Glaucoma! I will continue my eggs in my diet!!
Biotin (water soluable vitamin B7)- Not many foods are rich in biotin. Egg yolks are rich in this nutrient. This is another essential nutrient that is neccessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. It is also said that biotin improves sugar levels.
There are many more nutrients/vitamins packed in this tiny yolk. To keep it sweet and short, you wont find another food that compact with so many rich nutrients. But why raw!? Besides that I am an animal, cooking will change the structure of the protein. Truthfully, I just enjoy the slime factor! NOT! I enjoy the taste of the raw egg yolk. It’s a very distinctive taste.
If eggs are really that bad in blood cholesterol, I would’ve gotten XXX by my doctor years ago. My cholesterol level was perfectly fine the last time I checked.
