The chances of being sick are very very slim. Having said that, eat your eggs cooked.

do you actually lose anything cooking them, besides salmonella poisoning?

Not enough of anything to be worried about. You do however lose the taste of eating snot.

The avidin in raw eggs binds biotin. If you eat enough raw eggs, you'll get biotin deficiency. If you get biotin deficiency, you'll get a rash and your hair will fall out. Have fun eating the raw eggs!

He's talking about raw egg yolks, not raw eggs. The avidin is found in the egg white. Egg yolks are one of the richest sources of biotin.

The chances of being sick are very very slim. Having said that, eat your eggs cooked.Despite the ratio being very small, millions of eggs are still effected every year. Billions of eggs are produced though. The chance of getting Salmonella poisoning is like .003 percent or something based on this percentage ratio. There's still a chance though. Cooking them denatures the protein and makes the eggs easier to digest and more bioavailable...and it removes the runny snot consistency. :thumbup:

as funny as it may sound id rather eat an egg raw than cooked. i cant stand the taste of a cooked egg, weather it be boiled, fried etc. im willing to take the salmonella risk, so whats the verdict here? good or bad, cheers

For those worried about salmonella, you do know they sell pasteurized eggs right?
