Are eggs or unhealthy?

Report as

Chicken eggs are the most commonly eaten eggs. They supply all essential amino acids for humans and provide several vitamins and minerals, including retinol(vitamin A), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid (vitamin B9), vitamin B6, vitamin B12, choline, iron, calcium, phosphorus and potassium. They are also a single-food source of protein.
All of the egg's vitamin A, D, and E are in the egg yolk. The egg is one of the few foods to naturally contain vitamin D. A large egg yolk contains approximately 60 Calories (250 kilojoules); the egg white contains about 15 Calories (60 kilojoules). A large yolk contains more than two-thirds of the recommended daily intake of 300 mg of cholesterol (although one study indicates the human body may not absorb much cholesterol from eggs.The yolk makes up about 33% of the liquid weight of the egg. It contains all of the fat, slightly less than half of the protein, and most of the other nutrients. It also contains all of the choline,

Quail eggs are considered a delicacy in many countries, including western Europe and North America. In Japanese cuisine, they are sometimes used raw or cooked as tamago in sushi and often found in bento lunches.

In some other countries, quail eggs are considered less exotic. In Colombia and Venezuela, a single hard-boiled quail egg is a common topping on hot dogs and hamburgers, often fixed into place with a toothpick. In the Philippines, kwek-kwek is a popular street food delicacy, which consists of soft-boiled quail eggs dipped in orange-colored batter before being skewered and deep-fried. In Vietnam, bags of boiled quail eggs are sold on street stalls as inexpensive beer snacks.
Quail eggs are often believed to be very high in cholesterol, but evidence shows their cholesterol levels are similar to chicken eggs.[

Eggs are very good for you, organic eggs. eggs you buy from places like Walmart, they have been taken from unhealthy chickens kept in tiny little cubicles with close quarters, spreading sickness and all sorts of things. Eggs from big stores can be unhealthy unless they are organically grown.

Eaten in moderation, eggs are a very good source of protein. One's cholesterol should be taken into account, however, when choosing how often to eat eggs.

Like many things, eggs have many benefits - in moderation, but when eaten in excess rapidly might become unhealthy (depending on what site you read) The worst is the high amount of cholesterol (201 grams in one egg) and saturated fat (1.6 grams) in one egg. Because of that only two eggs per week are recommended. Hmmmm...
On the good side they are chock full of vit D, essential proteins, all amino acids and 300 grams of choline (essential for healthy brain, nerves and CARDIOVASCULAR system), are great for the eyes and hair and skin and nails, may help prevent breast cancer (by as much as 44% chance) and cateracts, and have 3.5% GOOD fats.
In fact according to one site benefits of eggs may far outweigh the possible negatives. So its up to you to decide. I eat them pretty much every morning.
