    Eating undercooked eggs

    I've recently started frying my eggs and enjoy eating them this way. It's a nice change from always eating them hard boiled or scrambled. I like to have the yokes runny though.... how much am I putting myself at risk here? Is this just as bad as eating one raw?

    Depends on country I guess.

    I eat my eggs raw for the most part.
    Been awhile now as it often goes in periods,
    but not uncommon to drink 12 raw eggs a day.
    Never ever gotten sick from it.
    But I've rarely done it in other countries than my own.

    I've heard it's safer in the U.K. than it is in the states. Do you think there would be any benefit to using "organic" over regular eggs?

    i stopped eating raw eggs because i read something about a thing in the raw egg that inhibits b12 absorption. cooking them fixes this. i would love to start eating them raw again because it's fast and tastes good in a shake. what if one takes methyl b12 anyways. 7000 / day like me? maybe i'm weird, but i don't mind slamming 5 - 6 raw eggs.

    Take up to a dozen a day raw in shakes,and have done for 30 years.Never had high cholesterol,and never been poisoned with
    Salmonella.Some say,you don't assimilate as much of the protein,as you do when they're cooked,but it's quick and convenient,
    and it suits me.

    If you're going raw, might as well go organic. Rinsing the shells wouldn't hurt either. Neither would supplementing with B12.
    Consecutively eating cooked eggs has me eventually nauseous after a couple weeks. Raw organic cage free Amish eggs is the way to go for me..

    If it's whole eggs be careful as I've gotten salmonella before and it's a horrible ordeal to go through although very rare to have happen.(1 in 30,000 eggs) is a figure I've seen.

    If it's just egg whites I buy the cartons at the grocer which are pasteurized. This will take care of it.

    Yeah there is some anti nutrients in raw eggs,
    like avidin, but it's been debated whether its B vitamin (forget which one, but don't think it's B12) hindrance of absorption outweighs the fact that there are those same B vitamins in the egg, so whether it cancels each other out, or if you need to supplement with B vits, I'm not sure.
    But supplementing B vits are a good idea regardless.

    Biotin. Avidin binds it and prevent absorption.

    There is no reason at all imo to drink raw egg whites, because of the antinutrients. Yolks are a different matter.

    But I drink both. That's what I mean by "does it cancel each other out"
    There being biotin in the yolk.

    I've drank a lot of raw eggs, usually the whole thing,
    Usually in servings like 4-6 eggs at once, occasionally 8,
    and find them to be really sweet.
    They fill me up in a pleasant way and almost seem to "protect the stomach lining" (which is probably crap, but it feels like it),
    and I would have trouble eating 6-8 eggs not raw.

    I always have my whites cooked, but only gently so. I find them unpleasant in texture when raw, and protein bioavailability is reduced. Yolks, raw are delicious.

    Actually, my breakfast base consists of three-four scrambled eggs. Until last year I was also consuming about .5lt of egg whites daily (couldn't handle meat at the time) with no trouble whatsoever.

    As for biotin, I supplement with 5mg daily.

    I only eat the whites if I cook or steak eggs,
    Can't handle the yolks.
    But scrambled eggs are ok,
    or just drink them raw.

    But whites are delicious when cooked or steaked.

    Also can't eat scrambled eggs if the yolks are runny,
    it has to be scorched. Runny yolks are terrible.

    I've noticed I'm not as everyone else in this regard.

    Oh yeah. I have no idea why I said B12. My bad.
