    What a load of horseshit. Reminds me of the old Ancel Keys studies;

    - Bob is unhealthy
    - Bob stopped drinking, smoking, began exercising, and focusing on reducing stress. He also cut out the bacon and eggs he eats in the morning.
    - Miraculously, after 6 months, Bob is healthier.
    - Therefore, bacon and eggs are bad for you!

    I've tested the blood lipids of hundreds (if not thousands) of people. I can assure you, high fat foods like eggs are NOT an issue. There are TONS of studies the debunk this nonsense.

    This 5-month study in 70 young men on a high-fat diet compared the effects on cholesterol of 3, 7, and 14 eggs per week. Guess what they found???

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7310532

    http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/36/1/94.abstract

    EGGS group ate eggs + placebo. AA group ate ascorbic acid + placebo.

    This study argues that the guidelines for cholesterol are unnecessarily strict, citing that the suggested limitation of 300g/ day does not fit the research.

    Egg consumption and the risk of Type 2 Diabetes...

    Even those with Type 2 Diabetes can improve blood lipids with eggs.

    If you were sickly, and now are much healthier, I'd be willing to bet you made a lot of lifestyle changes besides eating a few less eggs.

    The studies you posted can be manipulated, it's broken down well in this video:

    By all means, eat what you want, but spreading this misinformation is dangerous.

    My friend, I believe you suffer from a case of confirmation bias. Despite being confronted with mountains of evidence that shows no correlation between eggs and ill health, you counter with a vegan gains video that you are unable to explain in your own words.

    I watched the video. Which one of the dozen studies I provided do you believe the video somehow debunks, and why? I know you didn't look at any of the studies because they don't back your already preconceived views, so I would love to hear your take on how each of the 12 studies were "manipulated" or somehow incorrect.

    Dietary cholesterol is a very small part of your overall blood cholesterol. You make most of it yourself. Statins are your friend if this is an issue for you.

    I once found a correlation between veganism and anal retention, in a large cross section of cross fitters and hipsters......... I also found symptoms, within the same group, of oral discharge of fecal matter.........

    Eggs are 'mazing. Both me and my daughter, at 34 and 6 respectively, eat at least two eggs every day for breakfast, and sometimes one or two with dinner also, and we're both in fine health. I've thought about both sides of the pro/con egg debate for years, usually when I pick up and slow down on a fitness regime, and have never found them to be anything other than a good choice, for pre workout meals, post workout meals, none workout day meals....
