The Yolk is on Us
A couple of weeks back there was a major news story that the main stream media was crowing about that said that eating egg yolks was as bad as smoking cigarettes. Can you believe it? Frankly, it just didn’t pass the “smell” test. What will they lie about and try to pull over on us next?
I’m not sure who is more gullible, the main stream media for being so hungry for a story that they ran with it without reasonable vetting, or the public who still believes anything and everything they see in print and on their computer screens.
We chose not to write about it figuring that there would be an outpouring of rebuttal from the blogging foodies out there. And there has been. I’m passing along two links (from among many) that comment on the bad science the study (using the term loosely) represents.
The first is from a source often quoted in our Daily Grams, Mike Geary. He is one of the few foodie out there that we almost always agree with wholeheartedly. To see Mike’s response, click the following link:
Are eggs as bad for you as cigarettes? (flawed study)
The second is from a source I never thought we would quote, The Huffington Post. Can you believe it? Just click this link:
Unscrambling Egg Science
Now that you have truth on your side, how do you want your eggs?
