Free Range Eggs Not Safer?
This is another great “study” that was publicized in the media. Read this for a good laugh
“Scientists collected six free-range eggs and 12 regular eggs from farms and markets in Taiwan and analyzed the eggs for their content of dioxins. Taiwan, they note, is a heavily populated, industrialized island with many of the municipal incinerators that release PCDDs and PCDFs. They found that the free-range eggs contained 5.7 times higher levels of PCDDs and PCDFs than the regular eggs. The scientists suggest that the findings raise concern about the safety of eating free-range chicken eggs.”
The best part about this was that the headline I read said “Free range eggs not safer”. Why didn’t they gather the eggs at Three Mile Island or another safe place. Just another example of why you need to read the study specifics.
