Patch's Poll: When It Comes to Eggs, Do You Hold the Yolk?

Because a new study came out saying eating the yolk may be as harmful as smoking cigarettes.


Egg yolks are as bad as cigarettes?

That’s the latest report in the scientific journal, Atherosclerosis.

The publication released a study this warning that for those over 40, the number of egg yolks consumed per week accelerates the thickening of the artieries as severely as cigarette smoking does, the Hartford Courant reported.

The Courant has a full breakdown of the study here.

Hearing this, we wanted to find out from you: do you eat the yolks in your eggs or do you cut them out so to eat only the egg white? Take our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.

I love the yokes, but now I may reconsider.

Another scientific study that will likely be found to be untrue in the future. First eggs aren't good for us, then they are. Now the yokes are bad. Is there any reason why people have become so distrustful of the media. Everything in moderation. That's the key.

Love the yolks! However, I wonder if they specify how many per week? I'm thinking more than 1 or 2 would be more than anyone should eat anyway...I love how these people get paid for studies that are usually already known facts or meaningless. I agree with chuck...everything in moderation!

We as a species have been eating eggs for as long as we can remember yet we still exist. Please eat the yolks they are the best part!!
