Raw egg consumption cause any ill health effects?
« on: August 17, 2014, 12:37:40 am »
Ive been eating 3-4 raw eggs every morning for the past month. Ive read long term consumption can cause biotin deficiencies. Others have claimed it to cause hair loss as well. Can anyone confirm any of these claims? are there any other ill effects caused by raw eggs? Its such a quick breakfast, i dont want to give it up.

Supposedly, the egg-whites contain  avidin, an antinutrient which blocks the uptake of vitamin B3. Some say it is fine to eat the whole, raw egg while others, like me, who are rather sensitive, prefer to eat just the raw egg-yolk.

I've been eating raw eggs for a long time, and can't say I've noticed any problems. While I don't eat this many all the time, there are days where I may eat upwards of a dozen each day, sometimes as many as two dozen.

There are plenty more discussions about eggs on this forum. Just use the search function; it would save us the task to always repeat the same, eh!  ;)
Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler

Very True

2 dozen in a day....... wow.

I can only manage one or maybe two per day, in fact our chickens (2 Americaunas) give us one or two total, per day, so we don't get a chance to get carried away.
