Killer Eggs

Filed under: Uncategorized — Brian @ 8:33 pm

Six eggs a week is fine, but that seventh one will kill you.

The article opens with, “Middle-aged men who ate seven or more eggs a week had a higher risk of earlier death, U.S. researchers reported on Wednesday.”

…and closes with this:

Men who ate the most eggs also were older, fatter, ate more vegetables but less breakfast cereal, and were more likely to drink alcohol, smoke and less likely to exercise — all factors that can affect the risk of heart attack and death.

Pay no attention to the old, fat, out of shape, no exercise part. It’s the eggs. Egg number seven, specifically.

  1. They have names you know, those seven eggs: Cracky, Poachy, Whitey, Benedict, Yolky, Sulphurry,

    … and Deadly.
