    I've read conflicting reports..some studies say the cholesterol/sat fat in eggs isn't bad for you.

    if your family has had a history of high cholesterol, wouldn't hurt to get it check after a while, just in case. Even if its not, getting it checked is a pretty good idea anyway

    where did I say it did? :ugh:

    simply said checking cholesterol, especially when there is a family history (implying genetic basis for blood cholesterol) is a good thing.

    If you have no family history of heart problems or cholesterol problems then go for it.

    I am cutting, so I am mostly on whites, but when bulking I will eat 5 whole eggs just about everyday.

    Dietary cholesterol has little affect on cholesterol levels. I've been eating 8 eggs every morning for about 3 years, my cholesterol is perfect and my blood lipid check is perfect as well.

    That's true for cholesterol but saturated fat can have an influence. There are high and low responders to dietary fat.
    If one's intake of saturated fat is balanced with a good level of polyunsaturated fat and low trans fat intake, it should be fine though...
    High carb intake along with physical inactivity have a worse impact on blood lipid levels IMO.
