Is eating as many as 24 plus organic whole eggs every two weeks bad for me? will this raise my cholesterol?

May not: Cholesterol intake has a limited role in determining blood cholesterol levels and eating 1-2 eggs/day may not raise it. However, it would be a good idea to discuss the matter with your doctor and have a blood cholesterol test done. Saturated fats are more involved in raising cholesterol.
