I’ve been spending extra time in the gym lately and have been trying to up my protein intake and figured that eggs would be the most economical method of doing this.
I read or heard from various sources that there is nothing unhealthy about eating egg yolks unless you are sensitive to ingested cholesterol (i.e. it raises your cholesterol levels). Other things I’ve heard is that the yolk contains some sort of acid (can’t remember the name) which is bad for your circulatory system.
I hate to throw out the yolk unless I really have to since it contains half the protein and most of the other nutrients in the egg, besides the fact that it tastes a lot better with a yolk.
So what is the straight dope, are egg yolks healthy or not?
