People do it, but I wouldn't.

You can get eggwhites in liquid, pasteurized form:

Well OK... A Russian.. but still, it's a metaphore. Rocky drinks raw eggs, Rocky wins the cold war.

Cooked eggs are actually better for digestion and absorption.

I used to do that when I would wake up late and was running out of time. I don't believe there are any real advantages, although I did hear some people say the protein is "more pure", but I think its bogus.

Pasteurized eggwhites are JUST AS GOOD as cooked egg whites. The substance that makes egg whites not as effective is broken down during pasteurization. As for normal eggs, I would assume if you could get pasteurized eggs it would be the same way.

aren't raw eggs really bad for you in terms of bacteria etc?

Really bad is relative to cooked. Yes, there is a HIGHER chance of catching some bad bacteria, but the overall chance of it happening is still quite low. But, like the others have said, just cook them or get pasteurized.

While the risk is very low, you can ingest salmonella and become very sick. I have done it a few times and I actually think its easier to drink a few eggs than cook and eat a few eggs... but I still cook and eat them outside of trying it a couple times.

Drinking eggs is a lot easier as cooking eggs increase the volume dramatically.

Try drinking a carton of egg whites and eat them scrambled and you will see what I mean.

i would drink them raw - wouldn't bother me, only eggs sometimes tend to be infected with salmonella where i come from so I think I'll give that one a miss.

You can also crack an egg into a glass of milk.
