Laura's Super Easy Delicious Crustless Quiche

"“An 88-year-old man consumed 24 soft-boiled eggs a day for 15 years. Scientists found that despite a cholesterol intake close to 6,000 mg a day – well above the recommended maximum of 300 mg – the man had normal blood cholesterol and showed no signs of heart disease.” Source: Edward Blonz PPNF Health Journal quoted in Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon p444." 
I'm not suggesting that you eat 24 eggs a day, but all my studies that I have done says that eating plenty of fresh eggs in a well balanced diet will not have an effect on my cholesterol levels whatsoever.  In fact I have read several studies that eggs, the whole egg has reduced cholesterol levels in individuals whose Cholesterol levels were "too high"  Now that is another subject all it's own.  How high is too high?  Studies have shown that young children and the elderly need higher cholesterol levels.  Unconventional thinking, I know, but I have seen 3 different elderly women who were told that their Cholesterol levels were way too high, and so the doctor put them on Cholesterol lowering drugs.  These drugs lowered their Cholesterol levels to a so called "normal" level.  A level that also made one of them forget to lock the store door when they left work and sometimes forgetting to take care of the money in the till. (This after having worked there for numerous years and a habit so ingrained in them, it was unbelievable to her.)  Another one I know would drive to her destination, open the door and immediately slump forward in slumber, her head hitting the steering wheel.  I happened to see this several times.  She said she would have to pull over while driving because she knew she was going fall asleep at the wheel.  Both of these instances were after starting the drugs. Studies have shown that these are symptoms of a Cholesterol level that is too low. We eat our eggs without worrying about Cholesterol levels whatsoever.  In fact, we go through 30 dozen eggs a month between the 8 of us.  Our Cholesterol levels are normal.
