I've heard it happens "once in a while". So if you eat them "once in a while", then you have a "once in a while chance." LOL!Originally Posted by DmitryWI

I have read one in 20,000 eggs contain it,
I would sya that WAY more would carry the bacteria/virus??? on the outside of the shell.

Like Bobo said, it is not a problem.
I got tested a while ago for high mercury level because I was sceptical too about this, but the hospital didn't call back so it's mean that everything is alright.
High mercury level could be found in fresh tuna, but in canned tuna, everything is fine.

That is not accurate. Mercury can be found in canned tuna as well as fresh. What Bobo said was switch to Albacore, and the problem is eliminated. I believe Albacore swim at a deeper water level, therefore they are not subjected to the toxins in the air pollution, such as mercury.Originally Posted by Chunky

Well, you probably right. So what I said what not necessarily true, then inaccurate, but I think that the hospital test was accurate. Therefore, if Im alright, why another one would not be ?Originally Posted by Cuffs

I believe the biggest concern for merury levels is more geared towards children and pregnant females. Something with the mecury affecting children's brain development. I don't believe it's such a concern for adults, and it has been exaggerated.
The feds used to closely monitor the fishing industry when this problem was brought to light. Then, over the years, they became laxed and now allow the industry to police themselves. As a result, higher merury levels are being found. Also, if they enforced stricter regulations on the fishing industry, you would see the prices of tuna and other top swimming fish skyrocket.

Well I used Lana's egg whites, not actual eggs. I just count the grams of protein. It's just too convenient that way and I hate cooking.Originally Posted by CROWLER

Is there a better way to get the yoke out of the raw egg. Right now I use a spoon and I always break the dam thing.
12-19-2004, 02:33 PM
just crack it in half and dump the egg from shell to shell to get all the whites out
Jumbo eggs are the best, alot more egg white for your $

Isnt eating such ridiculous amounts of eggs a little harsh on the saturated fat? I mean...5 eggs a day is like 8 grams of sat fat and 25 grams of total fat!
I love whole eggs. I could eat a dozen in one shot (frittata) noooo problem!.
12-20-2004, 05:47 PM
Yeah, stick to mostly egg whites. All the sat fat/cholesterol is in the yolk.Originally Posted by Edge

I have a question for bobo or anyone else in the know. I read the other day that the risk associated with the fat and cholesterol in egg yolks is overblown, do you know the reality of this? I stick mainly to the whites to be on the safe side anyways, just wondering. Thanks.

so what is the chance to get salmonella from eating row eggs?
I eat them raw once in a while... people do this and tell me I'm gonna die. LOL
Salmonella is carried on the outside of the egg, so as long as you wash the eggs before you eat them, in warm water with a little dish soap or just use fruit spray, you are fine.

Anyone have a hard boiled egg peeler like this one?
Hard boiled eggs can be very convenient, but I frickin hate peeling them.
Also, if you like your yolks but worry about the fat, they have Omega-3 eggs now that are supposed to contain mostly good fats(a little more expensive though). I think they are from chickens that eat flax seed.

My friend has that egg contraption. He says its not worth the effort, that website makes it look like you bang one out after another though you have to open it each time and place it just right in there, and that he smashes alot of them making it even hard to get the shell off the egg.Originally Posted by Moyer
I was reading somewhere (sorry no link) that the omega 3 eggs only have a bit more omega 3 and that for the extra money you're better off using more flax/fish.

if the hospital didn't call you, it doesn't mean a damn thing one way or another.
i had also heard/read/pulled out of thin air that the chunk light tuna has less mercury than the albacore because of the relative ages of the fish, i.e. chunck light is younger, less concentration of mercury...

Eat ORGANIC free range raw eggs, they have a lot less % of salmonella and the nutrient levels are supposed to be better. But they cost more.Originally Posted by DmitryWI
