Eating Raw Egg Is Unhealthy, Here Why You Should Not Do It

According to healthline Many people have the false impression that raw eggs are more nutritious than cooked ones, namely that they contain more protein. If you're one of the people who thinks drinking raw egg can provide more protein than eating a boiled egg, you should probably reevaluate your position because it could be highly risky.

We're going to take a look at the most important reason why you shouldn't eat raw eggs or consume them in their raw form. This is a common practice among many people; some people, especially singers who perform in public, drink it to improve the clarity of their voice. However, it will do you more good than harm to read on and pick up some useful information.

You should know that raw eggs do not contain more protein than cooked eggs and that consuming them in this manner can expose you to harmful microorganisms. A salmonella infection can occur in as few as one in every 20,000 eggs. These bacteria are widespread in the food supply and other consumables, and they can cause significant illness if ingested. Should you have the misfortune of ingesting a contaminated egg, you run the risk of developing a slew of unpleasant symptoms, including high fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and more.

In extreme circumstances, you may begin suffering life-threatening symptoms that could result in a medical emergency if you are not sent to a hospital. Therefore, there is no benefit to consuming raw eggs, as even cooked eggs are more protein-rich than raw ones, as studies have shown. Salmonella is typically avoided by boiling eggs properly, but even if you do so, you still run the risk of contracting the disease if you eat an undercooked egg.
