, compared to age, both tobacco smoking and egg yolk consumption accelerate atherosclerosis. The study also found those eating three or more yolks a week had significantly more plaque area than those who ate two or fewer yolks per week.
effect of egg yolk consumption over time on increasing the amount of plaque in the arteries was independent of sex, cholesterol, blood pressure, smoking, body mass index and diabetes

So the egg is the bad guy again. We haven't heard about eggs and butter for awhile, this will go on for a few years, then they will find something redeeming.

Seems like every couple of years the medical profession does a complete u-turn how good/bad eggs are for us.

HAHAHAHA So who lined his pockets? Given more and more people are taking to keeping their own chickens these days to save cash it's time to make eggs the bad guy again. Naughty people obviously aren't spending enough money in the shops, damn you people who grow and raise your own, damn you. *shakes fist*

Next week the shops will be full of lovely cartons of packaged NEW HEALTHIER EGGS and everyone will go nuts.....

Every day it seems like the "medical professionals" keep coming up with more and more things that are bad for you. Can't smoke, can't eat eggs, don't eat the raw spinach (may be contaminated), don't drink the water (fluoride in it will kill you), etc...

If I give up everything that scientists have said can kill me I may just starve to death- that is if radiation or global warming doesn't get me first! To heck with ALL of them!!! I will live like I want to and when I die at least I will be happy with a full stomach!

I am amazed at how people have lived to be about 78 years of age for about 78 years now, despite medical claims. Now if the medical industry would actually improve quality of life in geriatric care instead of milking away all assets, we would live better.

They are already there this week, but I trust mother nature more than a bunch of chemists so I never buy them.

It's time for the poultry lobby to hire some scientists to do some studies on yolks that conclude they actually improve your health.

I think if you really want to know what is good or bad for you, look at what your ancestors would of eaten. I am pretty sure they would of eaten eggs.

Its not medical claims, its mathematical claims. They see a correlation and decide its fact.


Everybody's body is different, you see 80 year old smokers who have smoked all their life, and 30 year olds with lung cancer.
It may increase your chances, it maybe an unknown factor that links the two, you might need a specific gene to increase your chances. I think until we get away from these studies and do some actual science, ie see if there's a specific protein that's causing a reaction, then these studies are no better than the ones you see in tabloids.

The study (Canadian) was on people who already had advanced coronary artery disease (CAD). Egg yolks are a concentrated form of cholesterol but not all cholesterol is bad for you. However, if you have advanced CAD then you need to limit your intake of it. Moderation is the key with egg yolks methinks...not the same as with transfats.

1. I wonder when Bloomberg will ban eggs in New York?

2. As a child, we used to put raw eggs in orange juice and put it in a blender. YUM!

3. So now the jingle will go. . . "The incredible edible egg, (that will kill you). . . . . . .
