    That is the problem with studies. The only thing constant is change. And that includes studies and findings.

    Whats good today is bad tomorrow. Then next week its not as bad as THEY thought. Who the heck is THEY anyway and what makes the experts? Not to mention what is good for you might kill me. My grandfather always said its all good in moderation. He was 102 yrs old when he died,how can you question that? He was my inspiration in self-sustainance.[​IMG]

    It has always amazed me how many doctors don't make connections between food and health. But it is true for people it is true for eggs. What they eat matters.

    From the study report "and the composition of their eggs was then tested. "

    It was be interesting to be able to get our own eggs "tested" to find out where they fell in regards to this study. The only comparison used was eggs from chickens fed "feeds that were high in anti-oxidants and lower in omega-6 fatty acids, based on wheat, barley, and milo" verses standard grocery store eggs.
  10. I was getting my Masters in Human Nutrition back in the mid-80s. Even back then, they were teaching that the cholesterol from eggs, shellfish and beef didn't really equate to heart disease.
    It just didn't trickle down to the really old school of modern medicine for another twenty years. The gears grind very slowly.
