Consuming Raw Egg Yolk
If you are not used to eating fresh raw egg yolks or fresh raw fish, you should start eating just a tiny bit of it on a daily basis, and then gradually increase the portions.
For example: you can start with consuming only a few drops of raw egg yolk daily, during the first 3 days. Then consume half a teaspoon raw egg yolk daily during the next 3 days. The next 3 days one teaspoon raw egg yolk daily. Then 2 teaspoons daily. Then 1 whole raw egg yolk daily and subsequently 2 raw egg yolks daily. Eventually, you can easily eat 5 raw egg yolks daily, which is absolutely perfect to enhance your mood, sleep and menstrual cycle.
Fresh raw egg yolk tastes like vanilla, and combines very nicely with avocado.
You can also blend different fruits (e.g. banana, orange juice, apple), or tomatoes or orange juice only, and add the egg yolk. Only stir with a fork gently, because egg protein easily gets damaged on molecular level (see site23), even by mixing / blending.
You can also add raw egg yolks to cooked potatoes or –rice.
Processing fresh raw egg yolk mixed with avocado, potato or rice requires lots of oxygen and strict physical inactivity.
If you are a smoker, you might sense a lack of oxygen after having consumed raw egg yolk.
Of course you should only consume egg yolk that is really fresh.
#1 ALWAYS check the freshness of the egg right before you want to consume the yolk.
#2 If you are uncertain about the freshness of an egg, don't eat it.
#3 If it smells 'weird', don't eat it.
If there is a crack in the shell, don't eat it.
#6 To be able to properly judge the freshness of an egg, it's contents need to be at room temperature; eggs that are stored in the fridge and are opened right away seem fresher than they are. The eggs that you want to check freshness of, should be kept outside the fridge for at least an hour prior to opening them.
#7 First check all the eggs by rolling them across a flat surface. If they don't roll wobbly, don't consume them.
#8 Secondly: shake the eggs; when they dash, don't consume them.
#9 Thirdly: Immerse the eggs in a pan of cool, salted water. If it rises to the surface somewhat, don't consume it. If the egg emits a tiny stream of bubbles, don't consume it. (then the shell is porous/contains a hole)
#10 and last: Open the egg;
If the egg white is watery instead of gel-like, don't consume the egg.
If the egg yolk is not convex and firm, don't consume the egg.
If the egg yolk easily bursts, don't consume the egg.
#11 The first 3 days that you consume fresh raw egg yolk, take only one teaspoon of it, so that your defense system has the time to adapt to the small amount of bacteria in the egg. The next 3 days you can take one whole egg yolk. And the next 3 days after that you can take one yolk more, and so on. That way your defenses system will be properly trained to fight bacteria, so that even if you eat something really bad in the wrong restaurant with your friends, your bowels will maximally move too much while your friends may be seriously ill.
Egg yolks that are not that fresh, can also make your bowels move too much.

Vitamins and Minerals
Humans are not supposed to eat plants, but their fruits. Egg yolk is 'the fruit of the egg', containing all the vitamin A, -D, -K and -E and cholesterol, and most iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and iodide.

Don't consume raw egg white. Egg white is comparable to the womb, ovaries and oviduct, containing the same substances as are produced in the human oviduct (which is enhanced by progesterone (avidine), respectively estrogen (ovomucoid));
- Avidine in raw egg-white de-activates vitamin B8 (biotine).
- Ovomucoid in raw egg-white inhibits trypsin, an enzyme that decomposes absorbed nutrients.
Also do not consume the 'bag' containing the yolk and the string attached to it; hold the whole yolk in your fingers, make a small cut, and drain the yolk.
Chlesterol & Trans-fatty Acids
Don't eggs contain too much cholesterol ?
Absolutely not, if consumed raw. (and biologically bred)
Unfortunately, egg yolk from chickens fed prepared / recycled grains, or other (even animal-) -foods, contains damaged cholesterol and trans-fatty acids. You will not taste this in prepared eggs, but consuming raw egg yolk, you probably will, and this probably will cause nausea. Be sure to buy eggs from farmers feeding their hens natural raw grains.
