So, the Egg Council hasn't gotten to ABC News, yet.

I have the equivalent of about one egg yolk per week. Is that the rate at which smokers consume cigarettes?"Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

"It may seem harsh to compare smoking with eating egg yolks, but lead study author Dr. David Spence says researchers needed a way to put it into perspective since both eating cholesterol and smoking increase cardiovascular risks - but the general public believes smoking is far worse for your health.
It stretches the imagination beyond belief as it has been proven by multiple studies that the cholesterol from an egg cannot be digested and passes through the human body as waste without effect.
A case of further proof that many scientific works today are sloppy, designed to find the answer the sponsor prefers and will not stand up to the full rigor required of a peer accepted work.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

I took Chantix to help me stop smoking. I wonder if there's an anti egg craving drug.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because

This article put the fear factor into me.
I have heard both sides of the argument about eggs over the last 25 years.
I had a chiropractor tell me once that God made the eggs with whites and yolks, so that is how he intended us to eat them....I replied "I thought that was so chickens could reproduce."
I first heard of this new study on Fox News. Not that they have doctors that are better then any others, any doctor can read a script.
