Now They're Going After Eggs

At a loss for something to do, JD Spence, DJ Jenkins, and J Davignon, have published a study in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology whose attention-getter is that there's more cholesterol in an egg than in the KFC Double-Down. Of course, they didn't need a study for that; all they had to do was read the label but, what the hey, you have to justify your existence one way or another.
    Also featured is their not-surprising discovery that, of the victims who became diabetic during the study, eating eggs doubled their cardiovascular risk. In other words, if you're eating a carb-soaked, diabetigenic diet mixed with enough fat to get you up in the morning, you're going to die.
