Fit FactorY - Scrambled Eggs Anyone?

Eggs have gotten a very notorious reputation for being bad for your heart, but this article dispels that idea:;_ylt=AmR4mw1UCAvxzrRpAg3cU7Cz5xcB

Which states that (and I quote):

"A new study in the online journal entitled Risk Analysis reports that eating one egg a day accounts for less than 1 percent of the risk of heart disease, the leading killer of American men and women."

Some say that the egg yolks are a big source of fat and cholesterol, so if you're being very cautious you can ditch the yolk, and you can have some of those yummy scrambled egg whites every now and then. This article, however, seems to suggest that even egg yolks aren't all that bad and that the egg yolks is a valuable protein (because it's also affordable, it's a good food choice for us Gen Y people - and everyone for that matter - esp. when we're on a budget). Again, moderation is key plus a regular visit to your dietician / nutritionist.
