    These eggs are cooked yes? And stored in the fridge? Then you should be fine.
    One in every ten thousand is the figure I've heard. See also:

    I was curious, went hunting, found you some links.

    British governmental advice, from the Food Standards Agency:
    http://www.eatwell.gov.uk/asksam/hea...ggsandpulsesq/
    - no limit suggested for eggs, as long as they form part of a balanced diet

    Study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 1999:
    http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content...ct/281/15/1387
    - no correlation found between egg-eating and cardio-vascular disease except possibly for diabetics; conclusion reached is that an egg a day is quite safe.
    - commented on in slightly less academic terms in the British Medical Journal:
    http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/318/7191/1094/a

    However, the American Heart Association remains somewhat concerned about heavy egg intake in addition to other sources of dietary cholesterol:
    http://www.americanheart.org/present...3006030#Item_7

    The science behind much of these nutritional issues is still very much in debate; links between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol remain somewhat tenuous. One thing that's definitely not in debate, however, is that exercise has a very large impact on cardiovascular health, and if you're exercising heavily and regularly you're likely to be relatively low risk for heart disease anyway. Your egg-eating habits are unlikely to make much of a difference to that.

    There is a very harmful condition that comes with eating too many eggs.

    Egg fart.


    I remember when I first read about egg farts from snakevaarks. I thought "Pfft, what a retard, he's dumb as a butt and twice as ugly!"

    But oh, it was wrong. Egg farts are real, and dangerous. They will make your air smell as nothing you've ever smelt before. They will smell as if the devil and all his sulphurous fury is escaping from your rectum, with all the eye tearing power of mustard gas.

    Ask not for who farts the egg farts. The egg farts are farted from thee.

    I did the Egg Beaters thing for a while until I was sufficiently convinced that whole eggs would have no negative effect on my health.

    I have been eating two eggs a day for about two years and nothing bad has happened to me. My blood pressure and cholesterol are both normal and my resting heart rate is unusually low (between 50 and 54 BPM). I see no reason to stop. It seems that the yolk is the most nutrient dense part anyway.
    I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
    Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.

    I would only be concerned if your cholesterol levels are bad. Otherwise I wouldn't worry too much.

    If you are still concerned, you can always boil your eggs (as any "bad" fat that might come with them is due to frying them.)

    Also, there are other alternatives such egg whites/egg beaters, tofu, edamame and other legumes. One thing I tried my own "egg beater" stuff by mixing one egg with some egg beaters, soy powder and a bit of soy milk. Kinda tasted the same as commercial egg beater (but cheaper).

    I would only be concerned about eating eggs if I were currently overweight and at risk of heart disease. But you are not. The fact that your family have had a history of heart disease doesn't necessarily indicate you are at risk, specially if you are a healthy, physically active individual.

    Keeps your carbohydrates down and chow down on all the eggs you want. :) Insulin resistance is a much higher risk factor for coronary disease than dietary fat/cholestorol.

    Except that apparently eating eggs increases your risk of developing insulin resistance/type 2 diabetes.

    Not that this should apply to the OP now, but in a few years it will be something to think about.

    This is the study in question. I haven't been able to examine their methodology yet, but I have my doubts. I've had some trouble parsing this study for impact of eggs.
