Eggs Are Still Bad for You
Summary and Critique by Jacqueline Nordmeyer
Given the choice between a vegan advocacy organization and the director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale, I am more inclined to believe the latter. He did not say that eggs are one hundred percent healthy for everyone, but he did give credibility to the federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee which is not specifically influenced by one particular lifestyle like the PCRM is. In the article, the PCRM backs up their evidence by stating that there are several clinical studies that prove their point. However, none of those articles are mentioned. It was only vaguely stated that the Institute of Medicine reviewed those studies. So, after some background research on the PCRM and critically analyzing the words they were publishing in this article, yet not concretely backing them up, I conclude that the PCRM is not a credible source of information and that the federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee's decision about eggs should stand rather than the PCRM's decision.
