    I wish they'd quit picking on my beloved eggs.

    I made a broccoli, bell pepper, oyster mushroom 3 cheese quiche very early this morning, letting it cook on very low heat (sprouted/peeled almond+ coconut crust) while I lifted & swam. I ate 1/3 of it myself today, it was so delish! I've cracked the code on quiches (for my own tastes that is). This study settles it, I'm going on an egg-athon this week. Joke 'em if they can't take a fuck!

    {heavy sigh}...where to begin? Ignoring studies that show that dietary cholesterol has minimal impact on serum cholesterol? Controlling for confounding variables? Did the participants only eat egg yolks for a period of time? If not, how do you rule out the influence of other dietary choices? Genetics? Exercise? The list could go on and on.
    You are correct. Dietary cholesterol has little effect on cholesterol levels. I gave a brief explanation of why here:

    A great example of how research can be manipulated

    Egg yolks are also a good source of lecithin, which lowers cholesterol and removes arterial plaque.

    This is the typical example that you can evince any result from scientific experiments.

    I personally believe in what I experienced: I eat 10 eggs per week, full milk yogurt & kefir, cream, coconut milk, fatty nuts, fatty meat, fatty fish, fatty fruits (yep, that's what avocado is). My blood exams say that my cholesterol is low, to my wife's astonishment who decided to become primal as well. For me it works, for her it works too. That is what matters for me, the rest is BS.

    Thanks for the link anyway, it's always interesting to see how much money is wasted in "research".

    A good tweet/Link I found sticking up for the poor maligned egg...

    Jeff Korentayer‏@jkorentayer "Eggs are good for you! It's acceptance of the cholesterol myth that will kill you"

    Some good points:
    ~This was merely an observational study, without any proper controls as part of the design.
    ~The research begin with a presumption, which automatically makes for a bad research design. One key example : the presumption that consumption of dietary cholesterol increases our cholesterol levels.
    ~The study relied on a very poor sample (already sick people in the hospital), and a very weak data collection method relying on recall of past behaviour.
