Eggs
#7
It's only in relatively recent times that I have heard all the concerns about salmonella and raw eggs. I don't know if it is really a huge issue or just part of societies modern day trend to be concerned over everything that "might" cause a problem no matter how small the risk. When I was growing up my mother would make us "egg flips" particularly if we has poor appetite for any reason. One raw egg, teaspoon of vanilla, teaspoon of sugar, pinch of nutmeg and approx 1 1/2 cups of milk, all beat up with egg beaters until frothy on top just like a regular milkshake.
They were a regular part of our diet and none of us ever got sick from them. I also made them for our children and again never had a sick child from them. Salmonella can be a risk with any food, we recently had an incident of contaminated pre washed lettuce in Australia. I don't really know how common salmonella in raw eggs is in other places but a part of me suspects that the concern has perhaps been blown a little out of proportion. I have always given a raw egg twice a week to my dogs and have never had an issue.

I appreciate GM's knowledge in respect to the biotin issue, that's info I am glad to have.
