hard boiled eggs on health

BACKGROUND: Recent studies in animals have shown a mechanistic link between intestinal microbial metabolism of the choline moiety in dietary phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) and coronary artery disease through the production of a proatherosclerotic metabolite, trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO). We investigated the relationship among intestinal microbiota-dependent metabolism of dietary phosphatidylcholine, TMAO levels, and adverse cardiovascular events in humans. METHODS: We quantified plasma and urinary levels of TMAO and plasma choline and betaine levels by means of liquid chromatography and online tandem mass spectrometry after a phosphatidylcholine challenge (ingestion of two hard-boiled eggs and deuterium [d9]-labeled phosphatidylcholine) in healthy participants before and after the suppression of intestinal microbiota with oral broad-spectrum antibiotics...

On September 24, 2003, Oregon epidemiologists noted an increase in Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium isolates tested during September at the Oregon State Public Health Laboratories. Of 16 isolates, six had matching pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) patterns. The laboratory findings prompted an investigation by Oregon Health Services and CDC that identified 18 cases of infection with S. Typhimurium linked to kits for making egg salad that were distributed by a vendor to a supermarket chain. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted an environmental investigation but was unable to determine the mechanism of contamination...
