No Yolking!

Yes, Scientists Have Cracked The
Mystery Of How To Unboil An Egg

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty
had a great fall; and all the king’s horses and all the king’s men. couldn’t put Humpty back together again.

That is, until now!  It is something that scientists have been working on for years and finally cracked – how to unboil an egg.  Gregory Weiss, professor of molecular biology, announced the break-through.  You say, “So what!  How does that help me?”  Well, current advances in medicine have made our time on earth much longer than that of any previous generation.  However, as life expectancy grows, so too does the chance of getting various degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and Parkinsons.  But these are not caused by a bacteria or by a virus, but by protein.  Specifically, if proteins mismatch, as cells in the body continually reproduce, you develop a degenerative disease.  However, what if you could undo these protein mismatches and so undo the disease?  That is where the unboiled egg comes in.  When an egg is hard boiled, the reason it solidifies is its proteins mis-match, tightly bind together, and become impossible to re-separate, until now.  Admittedly, it’s still a long way from unboiling an egg to undoing a degenerative disease.  But it’s an ‘egg-citing’  start.  And all this reminds me of what the Bible says in Prov. 22:5,

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter
and the honour of kings to search it out.


● In North America, 83 billion eggs are produced each year, with the average hen laying about 300 yearly.

● A chicken requires about 24 hours to produce an egg and most are laid between 7:00 – 11:00 in the morning.

● As chickens grow older they produce larger eggs and a chicken will turn its egg about 50 times in a day.

● Chickens with white ear lobes usually lay white eggs and chicken with red ear lobes generally lay brown ones.

● Yolk colour comes from pigment in feed. People like bright yellow yolks so the chickens are fed accordingly.

● In eggs, all the fat, cholesterol, and half of the protein are in the yolk (thus dieters like the white of the egg).

● Eggs contain the highest quality of protein known in food.  They are second only to milk for human nutrition.

● Eggs contain all of the essential protein, minerals and vitamins one daily needs.  They only lack Vitamin C.
● An egg shell has on average 11,000 tiny pores.  There is no difference in quality between brown or white.

● Eggs are placed in cartons with the small end facing up to keep the air cell in place and the yolk centered.

● The largest single chicken egg ever, weighed a pound and contained both a double yolk and a double shell.

Q & A – What came first, the chicken or the egg?  According to the Bible, the chicken came first.  Genesis 1:21 says, And God created every winged fowl…
