    Eat an Egg
    This nutritional powerhouse does a body good: One egg provides 13 percent of your daily protein requirement and only 4 percent of the average recommended daily calorie count. Plus, it contains a hefty dose of lutein, an antioxidant that protects your eyes from macular degeneration and UV damage. An egg a day may even help prevent Alzheimer's: The yolk is a significant source of choline, a nutrient that reduces inflammation in the brain.

    Woo I'm vegetarian, covered in freckles and early onset macular degeneration runs in my family! If I ever get to be old, strong, freckle-less or melanoma-less and can still see, I'll know who to thank! LOL

    Yay for the little egg makers! [​IMG]

    I think the argument about eggs is so silly... no matter what they say about them. "Eggs should be eaten in moderation!" LOL
