I try to eat only pasture-raised, organic eggs. They are more expensive but I figure they must be at least somewhat healthier...I make myself three eggs, but only use one egg yolk. I also throw in some frozen riced cauliflower, chopped spinach, and some turmeric - a very healthy egg scramble!!!

My oncologist told me to stay away from sugar. Cancer cells thrive on sugar. Eggs are fine because they contain great nutrients and protein. Hope this helps.

Hi,

I'll qualify that I am vegan, but yes, eggs are not good to eat. If you focus on only the protein they are great little meals (I miss eggs the most, Hard boiled eggs were delish)

I have attached a link to a great website and searched 'eggs' nutrition facts is run by D greger. He has a great little video (that hooked me in to his work) but his website is amazing. All his videos are scoured so you can see the studies and information he is referring to. I feel you don't like the video he has a transcript underneath the video.

There are quite a few articles and videos on eggs (but they are all short and to the point. The first one is about cancer risks

Nutritionfacts . Org search eggs

Sorry it won't let me post links. But it's a great site.

All of it is open source as well (his work) so you can share it all widely.

As stated above, no added hormones in eggs. Excellent source of protein, especially if your appetite is not great.

There is so much nonsense going around the internet, that it can be a full time job to sift fact from fiction.

I checked the nutritionfacts.org site referenced above. The articles about eggs and cancer seem to focus mainly on choline as a bad thing (because it apparently is associated with prostate cancer somehow). However, a search on choline and breast cancer brought up this: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC24307...

I also vaguely remember a study from way back that looked at diet and MBC. Apparently, women who managed to get enough protein generally fared better than those who didn't. I think you should continue to enjoy your eggs and grits.
