The only rule I have with eggs is to always leave the yolk runny, or to do a soft scramble or omelet. If you cook the yolk all the way you oxidize the good fats, which are very bad for you. In any case you don't get the benefits of the good stuff.

I know that's just nit-picking but I figure if your going to go ahead and eat all the eggs you want, you might as well make them as healthy for you as possible.

I'll admit it's probably blown out of proportion. I like the yolks runny, so it's a good excuse.

A lot of people talk about the high heat oxidizing the cholesterol, which is definitely bad. Then there's the theory that the iron in the egg whites also oxidizes the egg yolks, so you shouldn't mix the whites and eggs. So fried with the yolks runny or soft boiled is better.

Eggs also contain omega 3 and 6. I've read that commercial eggs have a 6 to 1 ratio of omega 6 to 3, which is bad, while organic eggs contain a 1 to 1 ratio, which is better. I doubt these amounts are strictly true, since other factors determine the proportion of fats other than just simply commercial/organic.

Also, it's the ratio of omega 3,6, and 9 in your overall diet that matters, not the amount in any one food.

But the omega's are very unstable to high heat. Hence my supposition that cooking the yolks all the way destroys the good stuff. Not that you should eat them completely raw, like I remember this one health guru saying.

the difference between organic and commercial i think is commercial the chickens are kept in cages and organic they are free range and theres no pesticides or steriods used on the chickens so its healthier for you. but of course organic is more expensive than commercial

Yep. And the different ratios in fats would be based on the different kind of things they were fed. Chickens fed vegetarian feeds would have more omegas than chickens fed with mixtures of grains and leftover chicken parts, bone meal, etc.

A different ratio is gonna come from every farm, there's no constant ratio between commercial and organic, only averages. Organic farm eggs do taste better (if they're really farm eggs) and should be better for you, but they're way more expensive.

There's actually a brand in my grocery store now where the chickens are fed special feeds so the eggs have a lot more omega 3's. But they taste like crap.

If you have a farmer's market anywhere near you, that can be a good place to get actual organic farm eggs and they'll usually be about half the price.

Good advice. I usually go to my grocery store because they always have specials like 24 eggs for $3. Not the best quality, but saves me money eating up to 8-10 per day!
