Poltry products along with beef and dairy are the #1 most contaminated food source in America acording to prevention magazine. Many chemical pesticides are fat-soluble and accumulate in the fatty tissue of animals, like the egg yolk. Animal feed that contains animal products compounds the accumulation, which is directly passed to you! Unless you are willing to pay the premium for organic eggs, you are getting massive amounts of pesticides.
