So, I've been hearing that egg yolks are bad. I always ate mine, should I stop doing that? Is most of the protein in the white?

Half protein in white, half in yolk. The yolk is not bad. The general public thinks that because the yolk is where the fat of the egg is located and also some cholesterol is located there that they are bad for you. The yolk contains good fat and dietary cholesterol has little to no effect on your cholesterol levels. If the yolk fits into your diet, eat up.

Eggs are good. Eggs are bad. It all depends on who's doing the study....No dispute, the protein value. Eat the whole thing.
