I read somewhere you can get E.coli from raw eggs and yet so many people i know eat them and are fine. Can you get sick from eating raw eggs (not that you would want to because they are so disgusting)

Hahahha....you are receiving childesh response except one til now as by eating raw eggs you are going tobe sick. its disgusting. If you are really want to knw then i can tell you from experience of mine that taking raw eggs with milk is no way harm you unless your stomach is enough strongh to digest them. If you are not habitual then first month you are definetely facing problem of stomach, nomatter how much strong your digestive system is. Taking raw eggs is advisable for those who are doing heavy execises or going gyms for workout. as proper excersise schedule and proper workout is also neccessary for it. anyway it is always advisable to take advise from your trainer.

I wouldn't advice anyone to eat raw egg. Salmonella can often be contracted from raw eggs and I personally don't see any health benefits. Not to mention that raw egg is slimy.

Yes I think you can get sick from eating raw eggs. You could get E.coli or salmonella. Most chickens carry salmonella and the eggshells could contain traces of feces which could get into your body if you are slurping a raw egg. Not that I know anybody myself who likes to eat raw eggs.

I don't eat raw eggs because of the risks involved however if I'm making a cake I do like to lick the left over ingredients. I have heard you can get worms from raw cake mixture, but I've also heard you can get ill from raw eggs. Personally I can't think why anyone would want to eat raw eggs anyway they taste disgusting.

No I can't eat raw eggs and I won't eat raw eggs. I think they have a sense of smell in the raw eggs that makes me don't want to put them in the mouth, besides, the smell would leave around inside the mouth for a long time and I wouldn't enjoy that. I can eat half-cooked eggs but not totally raw. Some people love to eat them and I find them really amazing that they love it so much. But I won't talk to them after because they have that "smell" in their mouth and I can't stand that too!
