    Ten years ago my midwife "prescribed" me 6 eggs a day and as much watermelon as I could hold, when my BP spiked at the end of one of my pregnancies. Other than that, throughout my adult life I've probably eaten 2-3 eggs at least 2-3 times a week. My cholesterol has been in the ideal range every time I've had it checked.

    I've always eaten eggs because I like to live on the edge like that. It's so thrilling to live dangerously and by the seat of your pants.

    Oh well, I never paid attention to that anyway. I have 1-2 eggs every day. Sometimes more. And real butter on my occasional popcorn. My TCL is under 200, thankyouverymuch.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I used to eat ten a day. Still do some days.

    Interestingly, my great grandmother lived to be 89. The last decade or more of her life, she was walking with a cane in each hand and looked as if she fell over, she'd just roll down the hall (not really exaggerating, it's one of my unique childhood memories!), but from the stories my parents told me, one of THEIR memories of her is that when they had beef or steak or ham, people would always pass her all the fat they'd cut off from their meat (which of course can be a sizeable pile, depending on the cut), and she'd actually eat all the fat!

    Yet she outlived everyone else in her family.

    My cholesterol sucks and I'm on a statin right now. I need to get tested now again and see if it made a difference. I'm not sure if I like it or not; I think it depletes my energy level.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    No, it's not worth gloating about. Knowledge is always evolving, and people try to do the best with what they know at any given point in time. Constantly pointing out things now proven to be incomplete or incorrect as though you yourself knew better or would have known better all along is akin to playing armchair quarterback. Yeah, a lot easier to call it from the sidelines.
