Side effects of eating Raw Eggs:

Raw eggs contains a bacteria called Salmonella. When you eat raw egg then this bacteria enters in your body and effects your body in a negative way:

  • You can become sick
  • It can upset your stomach
  • Loose motion, diarrhoea

People with strong immune system may not get affected by this bacteria.

  • Eating raw bacteria hinders with the absorption of Vitamin B7 (Biotin). Low absorption of biotin causes hair loss and rashes on the skin.
  • In raw eggs there is low bio-availability of protein. That is, our body only absorbs half the protein from raw eggs i.e. if the egg has 5gm protein then only 2-3gm protein is absorbed by the body.

Cooking the egg kills the Salmonella bacteria and also increases the bio-availability of protein. So it is better not to eat raw eggs.
