    are eggs bad for you (cholesterol wise)?

    theres always 2 diff sides to it.

    I love eggs, esp. for protein.

    Yes, I know this is a noob question.

    There have been a LOT of studies that all came to the conclusion that eggs do NOT effect dietary cholesterol and that eating a couple a day wont do any harm.

    eat the entire egg, there are vitamin blockers in a certain part of the egg, i forget if its the white or the yolk...but anyways you dont get full nutritional benefit (possibly a detriment) if you just eat one

    Someone can have a biotin deficiency if he eats the whites RAW during a certain amount of times. But yeah, the fat-soluble vitamins are, you guessed it, in the fat part of the egg (the yolk) so it's pretty nutritious.

    plus you need cholesterol to synthesize steroid hormones
