Is it bad to eat raw eggs?

Report as

It is possible to get food poisoning from eating raw eggs. Beyond that, homemade cookie dough has yet to cause me trouble ;)

A great deal of controversy surrounds the issue of whether it’s safe to eat raw eggs. Some experts emphasize that the risk of getting a food borne illness from raw eggs is very small. The main concern is that raw eggs could contain a bacteria known as Salmonella enteritidis which is known to cause food poisoning. Statistics show that only about one in thirty thousand eggs contain this bacteria, but there’s no way to tell by looking at it whether you have a “bad egg”. Some people don’t believe that even this small risk is worth jeopardizing their health for and choose to eat only cooked eggs.
Although Salmonella enteritidis is usually found in the egg yolk, even the white portion of the egg may not be immune from contamination. The only way to avoid a health threat is avoid eating raw eggs, and instead, cook them to at least 160 degrees Farenheit, which is sufficient to kill bacteria that can cause food borne illness.

Eating raw eggs can stop your body from absorbing vitamin K, and there are risks of getting diseases such as salmonella.
