Don't eat your eggs raw.

"According to a study found by John Berardi, the body can only utilize about half of the protein found in raw egg products. So not only are you risking getting sick, you’re wasting your money. Lesson: Cook your eggs!"

I exerted this out of this article:

http://www.testosterone.net/articles/172food.html

I couldn't find the article that explains it, but basically by cooking eggs you breakdown some enzyme in the egg that would otherwise not allow your body to fully utilize all the protein in the egg.

If they're made to be eaten raw, it's fine.

The ones in the cartons right? Because I heard that normal eggs contain salmonella.

Put some Tiger Sause and Red pepper on them. and they go right down....Tiger Sause is a Hot sause that starts off sweet but grabs you on the way down.

The pasteurization process involves heating the egg white to approximately 120 degrees. This is sufficient to denature the glycoprotein avidin in the egg white so there are no bioavailability issues with egg beaters.
