Eggs are Filth
"There is no odor so bad as that which arises from goodness tainted." - Henry David Thoreau
A September, 2011 publication in the journal Cancer Prevention Research (Erin Richman, et. al) concludeD:
"...consumption of eggs may increase risk of developing a lethal-form of prostate cancer among healthy men."

Notmilk advice: Just say no to cheesecake!
A secret all true vegans know: If you are a dairy user or egg eater, we can smell you, and it is a bouquet that is made up of three distinct essences: metal, rotting garlic, and road-kill skunk.
I do not personally eat eggs because of health and ethical issues.
I will not discuss the ethical issues here. If you seek more information in that regard, please visit Karen Davis's site: http://www.upc-online.org
I am primarily concerned with your body and your health.
When rotten eggs begin to smell, there is no greater offensive smell. That's because they contain so much sulfur. Animal proteins contain an excess of the amino acid, methionine (which converts to homocysteine). The center atom of these two aminos is sulfur.
When you eat these animal proteins, they create an acid condition in your blood. Imagine the essence of stinky rotten eggs infusing into your bloodstream. We cannot afford to lose bone density, but this is how your body compensates, by leeching calcium from your bones to neutralize the acid. Dr. William Castelli, lead researcher of the Framingham heart study (America's largest heart study) calls homocysteine the key to all heart disease.
So, that is why I avoid eggs, even though I once loved to eat them. Combined with the way they are produced, and the concentrated chemicals within, I've eliminated them from my diet.
If you were eliminating one food group at a time, with the goal of eating a plant-based diet as I do, here is the order that I would advise seeing you give up food groups:
FIRST: Eliminate all milk and dairy
As a rule, the higher up one goes on the food chain, the more concentrated are the toxins, heavy metals, pesticides, dioxins, and PCBs in their flesh and body fluids. Chickens are so filled with dangerous antibiotics, and the processing of poultry creates bacteria-filled carcasses, that I place poultry as the next food group to give up after milk and dairy.
