not a good thing Can’t be 100% proven o Certified humane meaningless, you’re killing the chicken anyways might suggest they are free- range o Brown chicken vs white chicken doesn’t mean healthier, depends on the chicken o Free-run = they have access to the outdoors, doesn’t mean that they do One small door, 1-2 chickens might sometimes venture out o Free-range = Cage free with some outdoor access Doesn’t mean they go outdoors! Can be in a pen with a door. o Omega-3-fats: not comparable to the ones you get from fish Feeding the chickens fish meals doesn’t work eggs taste fishy Feeding them flaxseed Not the same omega-3 fats that are found in fish (fish 20-22 carbon atoms long)

CHEM 181 TOPIC 5-7 LESSON * Those in flaxseed 16-18 carbons long. The longer chains ones are the ones that are converted in the body into compounds that are beneficial. Some of the shorter chain fats gets converted to the longer chain, but the conversion is very inefficient. Omega-3-fats o Studies: No significant association fatal or non fatal coronary events No significant association with reduction in heart disease People diagnosed with specific diseases People with high levels of triglycerides in their blood, high fat, o Evidence that a prescription dose of omega-3-fats, 4g/day, can bring down the triglycerides. Eggs: o Yolk cholesterol Cholesterol used for hormones Blood cholesterol is a reflection of the amount of fat that we eat the saturated fat, not the preformed cholesterol that we eat. Very little effect on blood cholesterol Maybe risk in T2DM o Where to store them? Europe: eggs on shelves NA: fridge In NA worieed of salmonella, so eggs are washed in chlorine solution wash off the thin layer called the cuticle (fatty later that is protective), and then bacteria can get into the egg. So we store them in the refrigerator Europe: Egg laying chicks are vaccinated against salmonella; so less worry eggs aren’t washed o Don’t want to put egg in microwave! Egg is water steam in microwave egg will explode You can put it into a cup for scrambled egg, but not a hardboiled egg.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
