Eggs Are Good For You

If any clever doctor tells you to avoid eggs, or tells you they're not good for you, know that he contradicts the Jewish sages of the Talmud. In Berachot (44b) it states explicitly, "Anything the size of an egg - The egg is better than it."

That is to say, to elaborate on the concise words of the sage (Rabbi Yanai, in the name of Rabbi Yehuda Hanasi): The egg is the best of foods! (And, it may well follow, that taking the white plus the yolk is the ideal, proportional mixture to take as is.)

Another sage, Rav Dimi, had the version a bit different, and adds, "... except for meat". What? Meat can be good for you? So many diet experts would get bent out of shape upon hearing this. Bear in mind we're talking about eating something the size of an egg, to be sure.

Also bear in mind, as Kaballah tells us (as per Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh), the main reason for all illnesses comes from excess intake. This concept derives from the Torah words, "VeSerach HaOdef" ("The extra cubit") (Shemot [Exodus] 26, 12) .
