I agree. Just do not cook in bacon grease. Saturated fat is what the body uses to convert cholesterol.

There is so much controversy. One study says this, and the other says that. This is a site I would trust as authoritative. It gives solid answers, far better that me just regurgitationg the info I read. Plus, there are links to a host of dietary conundroms about fat and cholesterol. Check it out.

I got a broken link when I clicked it. Is this the one you meant to link to?

Cholesterol Center - MayoClinic.com

I agree the Mayo Clinic is a great source for reliable information.

I'm a firm believer that eggs are one of nature's perfect foods. Regarding sodium, the sodium you need to be concerned with, would be in any prepackaged food.

Nope! I use real eggs -- the carton of Eggbeater in the fridge is only there for show. If he looks at the expiry date, he will know it had been sitting there for months now. Recently we had our annual medical test and his cholesterol showed up lower than mine. We are both normal in our levels, so who should I believe. I use eggs in fritata, quiches and other recipes that calls for eggs, normal eggs and I use them yolks and all.... Knock on wood, we are both healthy...ask my dog. No joke.
On days I will be eating something like a higher fat protein, I have the Eggbeaters instead of the egg, but what I cannot believe and it's really annoying me is how much sodium is in the Eggbeaters!
