    Why would anyone eat the eggs in a raw form? Heating the egg protein actually changes its chemical shape, and it is this change in the protein structure which can easily be a cause of allergies. The heating also destroys many of the nutrients and proteins found inside the egg.

    Unless someone provides me some crazy thing explaining how it would be a good thing to safely (key word: SAFELY) eat eggs raw, I wouldn't do it. Sounds kinda gross.

    Yeah. I got to thinking about it after and I don't think I would either. That's just gross. With the sliminess and everything, not including the obvious danger.

    the only way I ingest raw egg is if I happen to be making some cookies and I can't resist the cookie dough. Man I love cookie dough. I wonder if that counts?
