I am sorry but I tend to disagree with you eggs have been demonized because of their high cholesterol content. A single egg contains around 210mg of dietary cholesterol which although less than the previously estimated 275mg, is still more than two-thirds of the 300mg daily limit recommended by Heart specialists. Many high cholesterol foods are also high in saturated fat or trans fats. But the egg is not one of them. One egg has 5g of fat (about 8% of daily value), of which only 1.5g is saturated. Because eggs are often enjoyed with high-fat foods such as cheese (in omelets), or fried with bacon and sausage, they are seen as a high-fat food.Answered by inquisitive, 04 Jun '09 01:33 am
