The latest claim made by our non-scientific haters was that cooking food is “unnatural” and that “our bodies aren’t adapted to breaking down cooked food”. Well… Lets look at eggs.

Although digestibility might be altered if eating eggs in combination with other foods, this small but well controlled study suggests that cooked eggs are the best choice.
