    Tell your mom not to worry. Even most of the conventional wisdom nutritionists now agree that eggs are good for us.

      Eggs are an excellent source of Vitamin A, pre-formed retinol - the word 'retina' comes from the same word source.

      Show this to your mom (from Vitamin A: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia)

      Vitamin A helps form and maintain healthy skin, teeth, skeletal and soft tissue, mucus membranes, and skin. It is also known as retinol because it produces the pigments in the retina of the eye.

      Vitamin A promotes good vision, especially in low light. It may also be needed for reproduction and breast-feeding.

      Retinol is an active form of vitamin A. It is found in animal liver, whole milk, and some fortified foods.


      Vitamin A comes from animal sources, such as eggs, meat, fortified milk, cheese, cream, liver, kidney, cod, and halibut fish oil.
      LACK of Vitamin A is a cause of blindness. Mom may have misheard some information &/or turned it around. Good luck!
