I see I'm not the only reader here who thinks Care.2 has sunk to a new low, either!

OMG, this can't be a serious article, surely! If so, all I can say is it's as ignorant as another one that Care.2 posted a week ago, resulting in another "food fight" with 500 comments in a little over a day.

So, is "Chris from Newslook".......... (the writer...A researcher at Western University in London ) too cowardly to post his entire name? Okay, so I'm going to call myself "A researcher", apply for a government grant to study SOMETHING and publish my results SOMEWHERE. Let's see, maybe I can come up with something as a title that really jumps out and grabs peoples' attention! Maybe I can get Care.2 to publish it as an article if it's goofy enough?

I'm not buying it.

Many of the factors depend on the individual. This can include many other factors, such as activity, stress, family history, other eating habits, personal make up, sensitivities to food, etc.

On the other hand, I've also heard that eggs from chickens that are fed organic diets, and are out in the hen yard pecking (free range) that these eggs are healthier because the chicken is eating the proper diet and getting proper exercise. These types of eggs are supposedly increasing hdl.

But then again, look at milk, it's bad, it's good, it's pus, it helps you lose weight, it makes you fat, etc... So here we are on the egg cycle.

More rehashed crap on the same subject ... I am a smoker - have been for 41 years (since I was 11 years old). About 2 years ago I had a cholesterol check and was told I was at the upper level of the "normal" range at 5.4 mmol/L. I was advised to eat MORE whole eggs, amongst other things. As I was already eating half a dozen a week, I doubled my intake to around 12 eggs every week, for about 6 months. In addition I consumed more avocado and salmon and returned to using real butter rather than margarine. I did no additional exercise, nor did I eat less of anything else (like peanut butter or chocolate). I didn't lose or gain any weight but, when I returned to have my cholesterol levels checked again, I had dropped to 4.8 mmol/L. Now tell me eggs (just yolks or whole eggs) are bad for me ... please tell me ... so I can tell you where to go !!!

I HATE this article and all the press eggs are now getting. It's confusing the mass public who don't know a lot about health and nutrition. They read the headlines and that's it!!! They don't read that eggs are NOT actually the culprit here, its SMOKING!
