Eggs Are Bad Food -Roger Mason
Eggs are one of the top ten
allergenic foods along with milk and dairy, peanuts, citrus fruit, and Nightshade
vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, and peppers). A medium egg has 250
mg of artery-clogging cholesterol. Eggs have 64% saturated fat calories. Americans
eat a whopping 250 eggs every year. Eggs are a major staple of our diet. The
United Egg Producers Association makes sure you hear lots of propaganda about
how, “eggs are good for you”. Some people (like George Harrison and Linda
McCartney) called (they’re dead now) themselves "vegetarians", but
ate eggs. Since when do eggs grow on trees? Eggs are bad food folks, and
they should not be in your diet. You are literally better off eating
red meat instead of eggs. People like Jack LaLanne, Bruce West, Suzanne Somers,
Robert Atkins, Dr. Mercola, William Douglass, Dr. Perricone, Andy Weil, Dr.
Rowen and the Life Extension crowd will all tell you eggs are a wonderful food.
They’re all wrong.
What scientific, empirical proof do we have that eggs are bad for our health?
Plenty of clinical studies from around the world in top medical journals.
21.275 doctors were studied
in the Physicians Health Study (Circulation 117, 2008). Just eating one
egg a day resulted in a dramatic increase in outright heart failure. This was
adjusted for many factors so the results are very solid here. Many people
normally have a two egg breakfast every day.
At the University of Minnesota (American Journal of Epidemiology v. 149,
1999) 29,083 postmenopausal women were studied. "Consumption of eggs was
also associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer" was their
conclusion. This is almost 30,000 real women. American women have epidemic
rates of ovarian, cervical, and uterine cancer. Eggs cause cancer.
At Centro di Oncologico in Italy (British Journal of Cancer v. 80, 1999)
1,491 men and women were studied for oral and throat cancer. "After
allowance for education, smoking, alcohol and total energy intake, significant
trends of increasing risk with increasing intake emerged for eggs, processed
meats, cakes and desserts, and butter" they concluded. Eggs cause cancer.
The Japanese used to have very low rates of diabetes and cancer, especially
colon cancer. As they Westernize their diet and eat meat, eggs, and milk, and
eat less rice and vegetables this has all changed. At Aichi Cancer Research
Center in Japan they said the rapidly rising rates of diabetes and colon cancer
were closely associated with the increased consumption of meat, eggs and milk (Asian
Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention v. 5, 2004). Eggs cause cancer.
At the Hipple Cancer Research Center (Nutrition and Cancer v. 46,
2003) they studied 34 dif-ferent
countries for the relation of egg consumption to colon and rectal cancer
rates. This is 34 entire countries
folks. They found "...egg consumption was associated with an increased
risk of colon and rectal cancer." They studied thirty-four different countries and proven egg consumpt-ion
causes cancer. What can be clearer than this? Eggs cause cancer.
At the University of Queensland (Cancer Epidememiology Biomarkers v. 11,
2002) ovarian cancer was clearly associated with egg consumption with 20
references. They compared healthy women with cancer patients. "There was a
strong (note the word "strong") and significant dose-response
relation between cholesterol from eggs and risk of ovarian cancer." Eggs
1 in 8 American women will get breast cancer. At Harvard University (International
Journal of Epidemiology v. 31, 2002) the doctors found breast cancer
to be clearly related to egg con-sumption studying 351,041 women. That is one
third of one million women. This is right from Harvard, folks. One third of
a million women prove eating eggs causes cancer.
Again at Harvard University (American Journal of Epidemiology v. 156,
2002) ovarian cancer was found to be clearly associated with egg consumption.
"...an increase in risk with frequent intake of eggs was observed."
Right from Harvard folks. Eggs cause cancer.

21,327 doctors in the Physician’s Health Study over a 20 year period (American Journal
of Clinical Nutrition v. 87, 2008)
found people died earlier from all cause mortality depending on how many eggs
they ate. Just eating a mere one egg a day caused the worst mortality of 23%
more overall deaths. Diabetics reacted twice as badly with almost 50% more
overall deaths! You cannot argue with over 20,000 people over a 20 year period.
Eggs cause overall mortality. The more eggs you eat the sooner you die.
Prostate cancer is the
leading cancer in men. At the University of Illinois (Cancer Treatment Re-ports
v. 61, 19977) prostate cancer patients were compared with healthy controls. The
cancer patients ate far more eggs than the healthy men. They cancer patients
also ate more red meat, cheese, margarine and milk. At the famous Johns Hopkins University
(American Journal of Epidemiology v. 120, 1984) the more eggs men ate the more
prostate cancer they got. These results were based on almost 100,000
person years. Even three eggs a week raised cancer rates a full 60%.
At Helen Diller Cancer
Research 27,607 men were studied (Cancer Prevention Research Sept. 2011) for
consumption of eggs. They found, " men who consumed 2.5 eggs or more per
week had an 81% increased risk of lethal prostate cancer".
In Uruguay (European
Journal of Cancer Prevention v. 10, 2001) people with bladder cancer were studied. It
was found that consumption of meat, salted meat, and eggs, "was associated
with significant increased risk of bladder cancer." Eggs cause cancer.
In Finland 1,262 men and
women were studied for egg consumption. "Our findings suggest that regular
consumption of eggs should be avoided..." (Atherosclerosis v. 224,
The evidence shows eggs are bad food for any race or culture of people. At
Beijing Cancer Re-search Institute in 2000 (Zhonghua Liu Xing v. 21,
2000) Breast cancer in Chinese women was found to be associated with obesity,
intake of milk and dairy products, depression, dysmenhor-hea, and eating eggs. Eggs
We can go on with studies like this all day with real people all over the
world. The proof is in, and the facts show that eggs should not be a part of
our diet. Eggs are bad food. Anytime you find some natural health
"expert" advising you to eat eggs you know he or she is a fraud, phony, poseur, and just plain stupid. Take eggs out of your diet.
