This blew my mind.

A study suggests that eating more than 6 eggs a week increases risk of an early death.

I wonder whether they used organic eggs in their study or factory-farmed ones?

looking closely at the article, particularly the last paragraph, we can see that those that ate more eggs were generally older, fatter, and consumers of more alcohol and tobacco. Not the greatest results.

I would imagine that a very small percentage of the men studied were eating pastured eggs.
