Eggs and Scientists

I read with amusement this morning in the newspaper that "scientists" have now discovered that eggs are really very healthy. I am amused because prior to about 1980 everyone knew eggs were good for you, they even had an advert "go to work on an egg". Then some other "scientist" discovered eggs had cholesterol and adverts appeared everywhere telling people to stop eating eggs as they were harmful. Eggs appeared on Doctors list of banned produce and dietitians shook there heads and said no don't eat eggs.

Now a new group of scientists have discovered what our grandmothers knew, eggs are packed full of good cholestorol, vitamins, protiein and other good things and we should eat them up. BUT meanwhile a generation or two has grown up avoiding eggs as a problem food.
