Default How many eggs per week can one eat

Guys I just read an article online linking egg consumption to cancer.

Have you heard of any such thing ?

Eggs are welcome nutritional food. If organic, they are much better. I'd not like to put any limit on consumption. News papers also say high fat causes high mortality for varied reasons.

I never limit my egg consumption, and I'm sure there are days when I eat upwards of 3, 4 even 5 a day, if we have deviled eggs in the fridge.

Twenty one! Every single week for over a year. Doing great. I start every day with three eggs usually over easy in coconut oil plus butter with some heavy cream, Greek yogurt, cheeses and double espresso with more heavy cream. Starts my day off right and the rest of my meals are pretty much "optional" after this great breakfast.

Way back in the 70s, there was a swarm of articles on some new "cause" of cancer. Among them, if I recall right, were broccoli and BBQed meat. (Many of these so-called discoveries were based on feeding rats insanely high amounts of whatever.) This went on week after week after month. If a thing was edible, some expert considered it a carcinogen. Then the "fad" sort of evaporated ... and so did my willingness to hop on every bandwagon that rolled my way.

I do around 25 or more a week, depends on whether we eat at Waffle House for dinner.

OMG waffle House haha. there is one in the parking lot at my docs office. bad place. I say to myself, go the back way . Then another one almost across the street from me.
I could eat pecan waffles 3 times a day . the rest of it not so much.

ah yes. I remember pecan waffles fondly.

I don't let anyone tell me how many eggs to eat. If I want to eat as many as I want I go for it.

Waffle House dinner for me is a 3 egg Fiesta Omelete, rib-eye steak, sliced tomato and ice water. Wife she gets the scrambled eggs and grits. Don't understand why the grits don't raise her BG level.
