      Excellent information about cholesterol Gail. My wife fears eggs too much now and gives me only two per week. All your life we have been eating atleast one egg daily in breakfast and I miss these. I am going to show your e-mail to her.

      Most of the cholesterol in our body does not come from cholesterol we eat (eggs, etc.) Instead, our bodies use saturated fat to manufacture most of the cholesterol in our bodies. - Dr. Michael Roizen, The Real Age Diet.
      Cholesterol is actually essential to our diet. It helps produce vitamin D and helps the body repair damaged cell membranes. It is a building block for estrogen and testosterone, and is necessary for production of cortisone. If you greatly reduce the amount of cholesterol you're ingesting, the body will only produce more. - Oz Garcia, Look and Feel Fabulous Forever.
      "Without bad cholesterol, you would die. It's when the balance of good and bad cholesterol becomes disturbed that the probability of cardiovascular trouble lurks ahead." - Barry Sears, Ph.D., The Zone, p. 34.
      Eating foods with cholesterol does not raise the blood cholesterol. Nearly all cholesterol in your blood is manufactured from saturated fats and sugars/refined carbohydrates. - Mark Hyman, M.D. Ultra-Metabolism.
      Scientific studies of eggs and serum cholesterol is mentioned at http://www.physorg.com/news139156140.html & http://urbanext.illinois.edu/eggs/res06-cholesterol.html
      HDL ("healthy") cholesterol is increased by :
      1) drinking a little alcohol every day
      2) eating healthy fats (monounsaturated, omega-3s, etc)
      3) aerobic exercise
      LDL ("bad") cholesterol is increased by:
      1) animal fats
      2) saturated fats (fats that are liquid when heated and solid at room temperature)
      3) trans fats (partially hydrogenated fats)
      4) sugars/refined carbohydrates
      Artichokes, turmeric, garlic, and soluble fiber help lower LDL cholesterol. Eat "bad" cholesterol in moderation.

      Imagine that the size of a sperm is much less than a grain of salt. Would you expect a grain of salt to be able to flavor the whole egg? Could you tell the difference? I doubt it. Refrigeration slows development of the embryo and therefore there is no more than the difference of the grain of salt. Why pay any more for that miniscule a difference?
      Q: Are there any side effects of eating fertilized eggs?
      A: Absolutely none! The only difference between a fertilized and an unfertilized egg is a single sperm cell - not much difference. Here in the U.S., almost all of our eggs are produced in large chicken "factories" where the hens have no access to males so all of their eggs are infertile. Free-range chickens may have access to males and these may be fertile. Hope you're not paying more for fertile eggs! If so, it's just a marketing ploy.

      No, I have not heard or read anything like this though I am also one of those who are concerned about cholestrol.

      In India there are many vegetarians. Many of them DO NOT mind eating unfertilized eggs. They think it does not contain chicken embryo and there fore it is not live. They call themselves eggtarians.
