    Does scrambled egg, sunny side up, egg whites only, really matter. Eggs are high in protein. Isnt an egg, just that, an egg.

    I believe that the more you cook a protein, it begins to denature. So, in theory, the more raw the protein, the better.

    You and me both two in the morning two at night...

    I've read a lot about B6 and biotin etc but I just can't be bothered to sort yolk from egg and that's protein down the drain throwing away the yolks.

    As for salmonella 3 years on and off and hasn't happen yet. Adaptive immunity

    I don't think I could bring myself to eat a raw egg, but I did just learn how to poach eggs which is better than frying/scrambling them in my opinion

    I don't know if it was the Eggs or the Benedict, but I never saw the reason behind poaching an egg...That was the first and last time I had one.

    Denaturing only refers to the unfolding of a protein, and the shape of the protein when it comes in your body is of little importance because the protein will be broken down for the individual amino acids that your body can't produce on its own or use it for energy. So as far as the protein content goes, an egg is an egg is an egg.

    ACTUALLY, sometimes eggs give me a headache. I googled some information, and found that the sulfur content can cause headaches. But, if you scramble the eggs well, you oxygenize the sulfur (or something like that), and it's less of a problem. I haven't had headaches since I started scrambling.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidThere is no such thing as adaptive immunity when it comes to eating raw animal products. There are hundreds if not thousands of different bacterial strains out there that can infect our raw foods. We are not like cats or dogs that have the enzymes necessary in order to break down these pathogens.

    If you choose to have raw egg product get the pasteurized variety such as egg beaters. It is fat free and safe to eat raw.


    May not have the enzymes have the immunoglobulins and salmonella specific antibodies. Once you consume a small amount or weak strain of any pathogenic bacterium, you begin to produce antibodies to them.

    Go to a developing country and eat their yogurt to prep yourself and prevent future food poisoning, same principal.

    But then personally I believe bottled water, Wipes for the gym, shopping cart, hand sanitiser, hypoallergenic and sterilized everything, antibiotic over-use are breeding a new generation of weakly immune, allergic to everything kids, plus now we have stopped vaccinating them....

    Not that they don't have there place in eg a hospital
