I agree, as long as you don’t have a medical condition where dietary cholesterol has to be limited or not eaten at all, eat the whole egg.
I also agree on the over hyping of salt is bad but the sad fact is, did you not say you can not find salt with added iodine in your area? If so, it makes no difference if you eat the salt on hand or not.
Yes if you have high blood pressure follow Doc’s advice about salt. But, if things are not working as he predicted and you have done what you are supposed to have done, know this. When your salt consumption goes down your renin levels rise. What happens when your renin levels rise?
High blood pressure!
Actually, cholesterol is not the evil that the medical proffession has been claiming. In fact, certain types of cholesterol are essential for health. Cholesterol is a healing agent in the body. It is actually infamation that causes problems in the body. But that is beside the point. You should do a little online reaserch about eggs and nutrition. They are not the cholesterol packed demons as had previously been claimed.
We can get iodized salt, here. The thing is, many ( in fact most ) people have cut back on dietary salt because we have been told it’s bad. I stopped adding salt to my food for this reason when I was in my teens. I, now, do not like salty food. If people aren’t eating the salt, they aren’t getting the iodine, either. That’s why I was inquiring about iodine suppliments.
