Why You Need to Stop Eating Egg Whites
Scan the “healthy” section of a brunch menu and there you’ll find it: the world’s saddest order, the egg white omelet.

You do it because you were told to. We all were. Until just recently, experts warned that dietary cholesterol causes spikes in blood cholesterol, which in turn clogs arteries and hurts the heart. Cholesterol is found in the yellows, not the whites, so down the drain went the yolks. Left behi...

I told them not to give egg, dairy, seafood, or wheat in their child’s first year — and to wait until 2 or 3 years old to give peanuts or other nut products. That was bad ...
