Eggs are a traditional ingredient in many dishes: they are one of the most affordable and nutritious foods and are great for breakfast. However, eggs are not only tasty but also hazardous to health. A WeChat user named six types of eggs that can harm the body more than poison.

For example, care should be taken when eating raw eggs as they may contain bacteria that cause diarrhea, as well as avidin and antitrypsin, which can affect the body’s absorption of egg white. It is best to boil the eggs before eating – at high temperatures, bacteria die.

To check the quality of the eggs, you can mix the yolk and the white: if the product has become cloudy and smells unpleasant, that is, it cannot be. Such signs indicate bacteria multiplying inside the egg. The unsuitability of eggs for consumption is also evidenced by the yolk that is blackened or dried to the shell, writes Inosmi.

The user advised against eating eggs with cracked shells as cracks make the product vulnerable to bacteria and affect shelf life. Storage in a wet or damp environment also damages the protective cap around the edible part of the egg – this can also lead to the growth of microorganisms and is manifested by the appearance of mold and black spots.

It is noted that during the incubation period, the embryonic development of the embryo in the egg can stop due to moisture and infection with salmonella and parasites. Then the egg becomes carriers of E. coli, staphylococcus and other dangerous bacteria.
