1. Eggs Are Unhealthy

What a minute.  Didn’t I read a Canadian Study reported in August of 2012 that Egg yolks were almost as bad for your heart as smoking cigarettes?  It turns out, like cigs, eggs increase artery clogging plaque.  Egg-eaters, on average have 2/3 the amount of plague as a smoker.  I suppose if you smoke and eat eggs,  you’d better make sure you’ve got great health insurance.

No, no… the facts on eggs have “flipped” and eggs are in fact good for you now?  What am I to believe? It’s true!  While it is true a new study reported that eggs are an ideal breakfast food.  Now keep in mind when the study said “ideal breakfast. ”  It did not actually say eggs were healthy.   They’re just good at alleviating hunger.  The study, funded by the American Egg Board reports that eggs fill you up more than the leading breakfast cereal.  It must be all that plaque in the arteries that makes your body scream “no more of this poison, you’re killing me.” 

The fact is, eggs are unhealthy!  They’re one of the worst things you can eat.  One single egg has more cholesterol than the Hardee’s Monster Thick burger ( 2/3 pound of beef, 3 slices of cheese and 4 strips of bacon).

The egg industry also likes to report that “eggs are good for the eyes.”  This cataract protection chemicals they refer to is found in eggs.  However, there is over 20 times more in carrots, and over 100 times more in Kale.  You need eggs for healthy eyes?  That is a lie.

Now if you believe Kris, cholesterol is not the problem.  The arteries don’t clog themselves and anyone who believes eggs are healthy, obviously works for the egg industry.  The author also calls eggs the “most nutritious foods on the planet.”  C’mon Kris, you’re just trying to pick a fight with me.
