I also eat eggs almost daily. If it's not hard-boiled, it's over-easy, or scrambled.

Guys, try cayenne pepper on your eggs. It's so much better and healthier than black pepper. For those who are worried about eating eggs and heart disease connection , cayenne pepper is known to be absolutely fantastic for your heart. So this way, you know that you are doing something that will actually protect your heart WHILE you are eating your eggs.

I personally do not disregard any research about cholesterol/eggs/heart. I just don't believe that eggs is a culprit for our heart problems.

In ancient China, they used to give their teenage girls 10 eggs a day to prepare them for conception/pregnancy and nursing.

In high school I'd drink an eggnog every morning for breakfast -- sans rum, natch -- with one cup of milk, one egg, a bit of sugar and a dash of vanilla. Sometimes with fresh fruit in it, or yogurt instead of milk. My hair and nails were the strongest they'd ever been.

I'd do it again, but I'd be imagining hearing my mom screeching "YOU CAN'T EAT RAW EGGS!!!!!!" the whole time. Ain't worth it, LOL.

Over the span of a lifetime, keeping oxy-cholesterol levels elevated appears to be pretty dangerous.

Egg yolks contain a significant amount of lecithin, which protects the cardiovascular system from cholesterol, especially when it is mixed with the cysteine of the eggwhite. Cysteine chelates calcium from the calcium/cholesterol mix that clogs arteries.

I take capsules for the real hit - and eat the peperoncini for great taste.
