^ Not only that but egg yolks are an emulsifier, which means that they can actually dissolve the plaque/triglycerides in your arteries which is the negative result of ingesting too much "bad" cholesterol.
One of the most nutritious foods one can eat is a raw free-range organic egg. Raw eggs gross me out, but I do like to keep the yolk runny when I fry/poach/soft-boil them.
Back when i did heavy weight training I used to drink 5-15 raw eggs per day a la Rocky. Only later did I found out that the body only can absorb 50% of the protein found in egg in their raw form. When the egg is cooked you can absorb over 90% of the proteins..
Once I found out the trick to swallowing egg is to put a tablespoon of yam into my mouth and and a strong clinch of my nose it became pretty easy swallowing eggs without your stomach going on a rollercoaster. But what a waste of food!
