What is recommended? Just wondered because I get through quite a lot via omlettes and scrambled eggs on toast.


  • My understanding is that the link between diesty cholesterol and levels in the blood are not proven and that the old recommendations to limit your use of eggs has been debunked.

    However as a vegan can I suggest a lovely Tofu scramble instead?image

    I love my omelettes.  I'm pretty sure eggs are generally a big thumbs-up nutritionally speaking, although for me they have the same status as potatoes - they're good for you, but they taste a lot nicer when prepared with loads of butter!  image

  • Please don't post links to Daily Mail "health" articles!

  • Just presenting both points of view.  ie Daily Mail point of view / Everybody elses.

    Two eggs each morning.

     Edwina Currie and Salmonella. Mixing up the status of eggs with the chickens that produced the eggs.

    I have six ex battery hens love eggs, eat lots and still dieted.

    Actually 5 and a very poorly one who might not make it through the night image


  • From the Daily Mail article.

    "Men who ate the most eggs also more likely to have a poor diet, be overweight, smoke and take less exercise"

     I suspect the overweight, smoking and less exercise might just be a little more responsible than the eggs. I wish they'd reference the research papers they've taken the information from when they try to scare people...then we can actually read the research ourselves


  • Or just ignore everything in the Mail as it's usually bonkers. I'm surprised it hasn't tried to link cancer with asylum seekers and being an egg eating woman of any age deemed unacceptable by the DM.

    It's okay, though, because the DM also reckons that eggs prevent cancer as well as causing it.

    So just to be clear, not only are the Daily Mail claiming that eggs can both cure and cause cancer, but this even goes for specific types of cancer.  By eating eggs I am both increasing and decreasing my chances of getting prostate cancer.  Gotcha!
