The obvious egg facts are (1). Eggs have zero dietary fiber, and about 70 percent of their calories are from saturated fat (2) Eggs are also loaded with cholesterol—about 213 milligrams for an average-sized egg. For reference, people with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or high cholesterol should consume fewer than 200 milligrams of cholesterol each day. (3) Humans have no biological need to consume any cholesterol at all; we make more than enough in our own bodies.
Why so much fat and cholesterol in such a tiny package? Think about it: eggs hold every piece of the puzzle needed to produce a new life. Within that shell lies the capacity to make feathers, eyes, a beak, a brain, a heart, and so on. It takes a lot of stuff to make such a complex being.

Just 1.5 eggs per week have nearly five times the risk for colon cancer, compared with those who consumed none. By consuming 2.5 eggs per week, men increased their risk for a deadly form of prostate cancer by 81 percent, compared with men who consumed none. Even moderate egg consumption tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer.
People who consumed the most eggs increased their risk for diabetes by 68 percent, compared with those who ate the fewest. Those who consumed seven or more eggs per week had an almost 25 percent increased risk of death compared to those with no consumption.

People who consumed the most eggs increased their risk for cardiovascular disease by 19 percent, and if those people already had diabetes, the risk for developing heart disease jumped to 83 percent with increased egg consumption.
Even egg whites are trouble. The reason most people choose to eat egg whites is also the reason they should be concerned. Egg whites are a very concentrated source of animal protein. Because most Westerners get far more protein than they need, adding a concentrated source of it to the diet can increase the risk for kidney disease, kidney stones, and some types of cancer.
By avoiding eggs and consuming more plant-based foods, you will not only decrease your intake of cholesterol, saturated fat, and animal protein, but also increase your intake of protective fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals.
Free range, organic eggs is just as harmful as the eggs retrieved from crowded cages. Free range eggs are a clever marketing campaign to attract health-conscious people, no different than "grass-fed cows." The meat is still from a slaughtered dead cow and is no healthier than meat from a cow that is not grass fed........

Eggs are eggs - it doesn't matter if the female bird was fed our restaurants, cheeseburgers and fries and caged or grain and grass and roamed free... The bottom line is about what is inside the egg - chicken embryos

Also, legally to label meat "grass-fed" and eggs "free ranged," all the farmer has to do is allow one hour of grass-fed and one-hour free range their entire life........
