I've read that one doing a low mold, low yeast diet should avoid eggs. Assuming the eggs are not broken when you crack them into a frying pan, I can't figure out why that would make sense at all. What's up with that? Thanks, Mike (more)

If the shell is unbroken, the inside of an egg is sterile. I have heard that dairy products are not allowed on a mold- and yeast-free diet because milk contains sugars (lactose) that can feed the mold and yeast, and other dairy products (yogurt,... (more)

In general it's not the mold itself that could be a problem, it's the toxins it produces, and cooking does little to remove these.

Not just moldy, but raw. It somehows permanently boosts your mood, and heals digestive problems. Keep some raw meat in a jar for at least a week, then eat some, and measure the results. Can't find one person who's gotten sick, only better.
