My comments on the specific eggs vs cigarettes study:

Overall,Looks like a valid counter to me and it does show lipid lowering interests involved in the study.....that should not be allowed.But then those involved in the studies were not on drugs....and certain groups..... diabetics and other groups did show some increased cardio disease with increased egg consumption.

that last citation doesn't make sense. are they saying that aging causes arteriosclerosis? independent of diet? or smoking? blocked arteries don't happen overnight. if you eat an egg for breakfast, or smoke a cigarette you won't immediately be a candidate for the operating table. both food choices (i am not saying here which choices--lets just say it could be any number of poor diets) and cigarette smoking take years to manifest any bad effects. how can you eliminate age?

In this particular case does who funded the study matter? both smoking and egg consumption are shown to be harmful. anyway. how did they separate the egg eaters from the smokers? 'would they be able to sell fewer statins if the study were on smoking and broccoli consumption? I don't see how this particular study affects the pharmaceutical industry, The tobacco or egg industry maybe.
