    warning... eggs will kill you


    More reasons to dislike the media.. how do they manage to miss the point in everything.....

    Seven or more eggs a week raises risk of death - Yahoo! News
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Middle-aged men who ate seven or more eggs a week had a higher risk of earlier death, U.S. researchers reported on Wednesday.

    Men with diabetes who ate any eggs at all raised their risk of death during a 20-year period studied, according to the study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

    The study adds to an ever-growing body of evidence, much of it contradictory, about how safe eggs are to eat. It did not examine what about the eggs might affect the risk of death.

    Men without diabetes could eat up to six eggs a week with no extra risk of death, Dr. Luc Djousse and Dr. J. Michael Gaziano of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School found.

    "Whereas egg consumption of up to six eggs a week was not associated with the risk of all-cause mortality, consumption of (seven or more) eggs a week was associated with a 23 percent greater risk of death," they wrote.

    "However, among male physicians with diabetes, any egg consumption is associated with a greater risk of all-cause mortality, and there was suggestive evidence for a greater risk of MI (heart attack) and stroke."

    They urged more study in the general population.

    Eggs are rich in cholesterol, which in high amounts can clog arteries and raise the risk of heart attack and stroke.

    One expert on nutrition and heart disease said the study suggests middle-aged men, at least, should watch how many eggs they eat.

    "More egg on our faces? It's really hard to say at this point, but it still seems, if you're a middle-aged male physician and enjoy eggs more than once a day, that having some of the egg left on your face may be better than having it go down your gullet," said Dr. Robert Eckel of the University of Colorado and a former president of the American Heart Association.

    "But, remember: eggs are like all other foods -- they are neither 'good' nor 'bad,' and they can be part of an overall heart-healthy diet," Eckel wrote in a commentary.

    The Harvard team studied 21,327 men taking part in the much larger Physicians' Health Study, which has been watching doctors since 1981 who have agreed to report regularly on their health and lifestyle habits.

    Over 20 years, 1,550 of the men had heart attacks, 1,342 had strokes, and more than 5,000 died.

    "Egg consumption was not associated with (heart attack) or stroke," the researchers wrote.

    But the men who ate seven eggs a week or more were 23 percent more likely to have died during the 20-year period.

    Diabetic men who ate any eggs at all were twice as likely to die in the 20 years.

    Men who ate the most eggs also were older, fatter, ate more vegetables but less breakfast cereal, and were more likely to drink alcohol, smoke and less likely to exercise -- all factors that can affect the risk of heart attack and death.
    So its not that 'eggs' are the culprit... but the people who had higher mortality rates seem to just be eating more of everything... such flawed logic on the authors part.

    And we all know that 'rich in cholesterol' is not necessary a bad thing... unless your a fatass

    That explains it! I ate some eggs the other day, they just didn't sit well. I thought they looked a little strange.

    People will read that and automatically assume that eating eggs is unhealthy. They won't bother to recognize that the study was performed on individuals who had diabetes... duh. It also didn't mention any other habits they may have, or other conditions they may be suffering from.

    Lol nice replies guys. Conclusions like that frustrate me as well, and the problem is some people don't look over the information and make their own conclusion, and go about telling other people how they hear 7 + eggs/week is going to kill them quicker. /Sigh

    yea its frustrating.... i cant stand the idiotic nature of people at times

    i had an allergic reaction to laundry detergent a few weeks ago.. the first response from my gf and my mom: "maybe its all those supplements you take"

    hmmmm supplements = natural
    laundry detergent = chemicals....
    which would be more likely to cause localized skin irritation?

    I hear the same story, but just because something is natural, doesnt mean it can't be harmful.

    You should have said, no its the steroids and then punch in the face!

    You guys should read the book "In Defence of Food" by Michael Pollan. It's a short, well cited read about how we really need to focus on eating more naturally and ignore label claims on obviously unhealthy foods .Amazon.com: In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto: Michael Pollan: Books

    A better summary and reviews are there, but you can finish the book in 2 hours easy and will be glad you read it.

    Im such a nerd when it comes to books. Throwing this on my wishlist for my next amazon purchase.

    i used to deliver food for a bbq restaurant when i was 16-18.. i was at the neighborhoods front gate waiting for the security guard to let call the house and let me in... the guard laughed when I told him the house i was going to.. he told me that this family ordered delivery EVERY night of the week.

    I find one of the greatest joys in life to be cooking... even better is making low trans&saturated fat/low carb / HI protein renditions of comfort foods.
    good spinach dip :: blend cottage cheese, add some olive oil, cooked spinach, artichoke, salt, pepper, seasoning.... wow.. protein spinach dip.
    ive found that blended cottage cheese is a great alternative anywhere mayo or a cream is normally used.

    I love cooking too, and my girlfriend and I spend a lot of time taking homey foods and making them healthier. I swear she tries to find ways to make "healthy" recipes even healthier without sacrificing taste. We've found that spices are a godsend when eating healthy, as is slow cooking since you can use leaner tougher meats and end up with a tasty tender healthy morsel.

    You sir, are incorrect. Since the decrease in piracy in the 1800s, global warming has increased dramatically. If piracy were to increase to levels similar to those of the 1800s, then this global warming crisis would be over.
