    before I used to eat white only but few months back I came to know that yolk doesn't increase cholesterol so after that I eat whole egg

    I eat the whole egg – the yolk is nourishing, for sure. I make sure to purchase organic, pasture-raised eggs (the yolk is that rich, almost orange color).

    What's your opinion on Dr. Joel Kahn's warning against eating eggs: https://medium.com/@Kahn642/cracking-the-code-on-eggs-and-the-heart-547b230614db

    I eat 1 cup of egg whites with 2 whole eggs. So nutritionally I'm get the nutrient rich whole eggs while getting a great supply of protein!!
    Love eggs, even the one I put in my wife's pussy

    omfg this guy is so stupid, doesn't understand the research, and is causing harm with his ignorance. There are so many problems, myths, and errors in this video it's hard to know where to begin. Eggs are terrible for you. Please do not eat eggs.

    Eggs are harmful to your health. Please see recently published 2017 meta-analysis on 12 food groups and risk of all-cause mortality https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28446499 Free to download the .pdf from that link in top right corner of ncbi page. The authors identified 8 studies of sufficient quality to analyze comprising 30,352 deaths that permitted analysis of egg consumption. A positive association was found, meaning more eggs, more death. The risk of all-cause mortality increased by 10% with increasing egg intake up to 60 grams a day (about one large egg). Just eating one egg a day showed an increase in all-cause mortality.

    Here is a breakdown of the study:

    RR = Relative Risk

    RR greater than 1 means the risk of mortality is increased.

    RR less than 1 means the risk of mortality is decreased.

    Nuts……………………………………RR: 0.76
    Whole grains……………………….RR: 0.92
    Fish…………………………………….RR: 0.93
    Fruits…………………………………..RR: 0.94
    Vegetables…………………………..RR: 0.96
    Legumes……………………………..RR: 0.96
    Dairy……………………………………RR: 0.98
    Refined grains……………………..RR: 0.99
    Sugar-sweetened beverages…RR: 1.03
    Red meat…………………………….RR: 1.10
    Eggs……………………………………RR: 1.15
    Processed meat…………………..RR: 1.23

    Optimal consumption of risk-decreasing foods included daily 3 servings whole grains, 3 servings vegetables, 3 servings fruit, 1 serving nuts, 1 serving legumes, and 2 servings fish results in a 56% reduction in mortality.

    The highest reduction in risk for all-cause mortality in terms of servings could be observed for whole grains (3 servings daily) was associated with a 21% reduction in risk. A 15% risk reduction was observed for 1 serving nuts daily.

    Consumption of risk-increasing mortality: 2 servings red meat, 4 servings processed meat, 1 serving eggs, and 1 serving sugar-sweetened beverageโ€”is associated with a 2-fold increased risk of mortality. Not consuming these foods would reduce the risk of all-cause mortality by about 52%. Interestingly noted in the study, lower intakes of dairy consumption showed a reduced risk of mortality and higher intake values showed increased risk or mortality.

    The study suggests that protective effects of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and fish might be explained by anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, antiproliferative, or chemopreventive mechanisms, which have been described for a number of bio-active compounds (e.g., fiber, minerals, trace elements, vitamins, carotenoids, polyphenols, alkylresorcinols, omega-3 fatty acids). On the other hand, unfavorable effects of food groups such as eggs, red and processed meats, and sugar-sweetened beverages might be based on opposite effects (pro-inflammatory, pro-oxidative, or carcinogenic compounds) triggered by nitrosamines, iron, or saturated fatty acids. In conclusion, an optimal intake of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and fish, as well as reduced consumption of eggs, red and processed meats, and sugar-sweetened beverages, can lead to an important decrease in the relative risk of premature death by 80%.

    Stay away from eggs, red meat, processed meats, and sugar-sweetened beverages. Dairy is also suspect. Diets high in saturated fats, cholesterol, animal proteins, and sugar increases likelihood of premature death.

    We eat whole pasture eggs, or omega three eggs. I went into congestive heart failure last year but it was because of a virus. My heart valves and arteries were even younger than me…….

    I eat the whole egg. I used to feel guilty about doing so but now I will enjoy my eggs. I really appreciate the clear and easy way you explain everything, not just in this video but in all of your topics. Thanks.
