"I myself prefer my New Zealand eggs for breakfast."

The refrigerator light goes on...

Eggs are good for you. Period. Quit worrying and enjoy them.

You can substitute almost any veggie for the mushrooms but I like the meaty flavor that they bring. Scrambled eggs are especially good with red or green bell peppers or even spinach.

Eating Eggs

It appears that people with elevated cholesterol levels are able to have their eggs and eat them, too!

Dr. Frank Hu from the Harvard School of Public Health published a study of over 100,000 people who reported their egg consumption (April 1999 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association).  Because the study's participants were also a part of the Nurse’s Health Study and the Health Professional's Follow-up Study, he was able to compare their egg consumption with their health data.

He found that intakes of up to 1 egg daily did not cause an increase in the risk of heart disease or stroke.  This doesn't mean that control of total dietary cholesterol should be abandoned altogether. It just means that this one study found that eggs alone did not have an impact on this group's risk.  

This raises the question of whether other components in eggs render its cholesterol less harmful than the cholesterol found in other foods.  As usual, more research needs to be conducted on this subject.
