eggs arent bad, just keep the egg yolks to a minimum,
yolk has high cholesterol but also does contain some good nutrients in there that are beneficial.
i normally eat egg wholes since i feel as if they are wasted when i throw the yolks out
but some people like to put 1 yolk for every 6 egg whites. (thats 1 egg whole and 5 egg whites)

I think the bigger picture is who normally eats eggs. people who eat bacon maybe? Eggs scrambled with regular cheese? next to ham, and pancakes and syrup.
Every few years it seems "they" decide eggs will kill you. Then they take it back in a few months.
they probly looked at the normal egg consumer, even been to a Dennys before? or heaven forbid a Waffle House? those are the kinds of people that die early.
If the rest of your diets in check, within moderation obviously, you can eat as many eggs as you want. Just make sure your cholesterol is balanced.

I believe the last line pretty much sums this article up...
"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."

Damn right. This morning I had 4 whole omega 3 eggs, an apple with Natty PB and a glass of milk. This is pretty standard for me and I look and feel like a million bucks. The proof is in the pudding.

Egg's are bad.
So go eat some processed low fat/low cholesterol **** some corporation makes money off of, because they aren't making money off of eggs.

I have yet to ever hear of someone getting sick from raw or undercooked eggs, yet I constantly hear of people getting sick from restaurants, fast food joints, and buffets, but most people don't think too much of going to those places to eat. The salmonella issue is a flat out non-issue for raw eggs.
Try blending up the raw eggs in a nice vanilla protein shake...it's actually good tasting then.
And for people that think that "it's a lot of whole eggs", meaning a lot of cholesterol, keep in mind that cholesterol is used to repair tissues, like cell membranes damaged through weight training, as well as forming new tissues and even being the main precursor to all kinds of hormones. We as lifters aren't the same as sedentary people.
Oh, and when you scramble eggs and oxidize all that cholesterol in them, that's WAY less healthier than a raw egg yolk.

The information in that article is called circumstantial evidence. Translates to: 'we don't have anything else newsworthy to write about so because this COULD be true but we have no idea we are going to hype it up and print it.'
Print a copy and put in the bird cage where it belongs.

I am 35.
I eat 7 large egg whites per day plus two whole large eggs.
I got my bloodwork done last fall and my LDL was 112 ( should be <= 120), my HDL was 58 (should be >= 40).
Total Cholesterol was was 186 ( 112 - 200 mg/dl).
I told my doctor that I also eat about 5+ lbs. of red meat (93% lean) per week as well.
My doctor said "I wish more people had your numbers!"
