Here’s an interesting and scary thought: can you get bird flu (avian flu) from eggs?

To be honest, I hadn’t even thought about this possibility, until I read today that a food expert from the European Food Safety Authority is advising people that you don’t have to worry about getting bird flu from eggs – if you cook the eggs well.

Well, great. While my raw-egg drinking days are over (ok, they never started), it seems that the only way to be sure that you don’t contract bird flu from eggs is to cook them well, which means, to me, that it is theoretically possible to get bird flu from an uncooked egg, such as in, say, real mayonaisse.

I wonder if going vegan would be as relatively easy as has been going vegetarian?
