Eggs - Are They Really Bad?

A study just came out recently saying that eggs are a contributor to the build-up of carotid plaque in our arteries, causing heart disease. The media picked it up with articles like this one in the Los Angeles Times.

Now, fortunately not every scientist believes this. The study is controversial as many variables are not taken into consideration. This is what certain researchers would call bad science.

You can read more here:

My opinion: I think sugar and refined carbohydrates are contributing more to the build up of plaques in our arteries, which I already discussed here. And again, why would we blame a food (eggs) we've been eating for much longer time than sugars and carbohydrates? We adapted to eat fat/cholesterol, but not sugars, especially in the quantities we consume today.
