In this video, I want to talk about the difference between egg yolk and egg white. This is a question I get a lot. 

Many people only eat egg whites because they think that egg yolk is unhealthy, and it will lead to clogged arteries. This is a big mistake. Most of the good nutrition is in the yolk. Yes, egg yolks contain cholesterol, but this will not clog your arteries. 

Keep in mind that when you consume cholesterol, your body simply makes less of it. In fact, only around 25% of your cholesterol comes from your diet—your body makes the other 75%.
You need cholesterol for your brain, cells, membranes, and hormone production. 
Egg yolks also contain healthy fat-soluble vitamins—A, E, D, and K2. In addition, it contains trace minerals, vitamin B12, folate, phospholipids, calcium, and immunoglobins. 

Egg whites contain most of the protein, avidin, B2, B3, magnesium, and potassium. 

I recommend that you consume both egg yolk and egg white. Always go with farm-raised and organic eggs.
