No: Your stomach acid should take care of the fly eggs.

Possible: Could lead to infection, but most likely your digestive system will break down the eggs into the proteins & carbohydrates they are, then digest them. Please do not attempt this, there's no reason to put yourself at undue risk.

They can say eating none is best, no effect if have 2 daily, weekend eggs as bad as daily eggs. Egg whites--all protein. Egg yolk-cholesterol, but probably not utilized in bad way in body. Who knows. Moderation.

Burp smelly: If the burping is not too frequent compared to other people, then it may not be a case of gastric reflux, which needs treatment. The odor of the burp is never an issue. What a person brings up into the mouth never taste good neither does it smell good, simply=what is below should stay below!
