Best Answer

Raw eggs were once considered to be excellent and compact sources of protein, necessary for muscle development. However, in the last thirty years salmonella has been introduced into eggs naturally and the risk of becoming ill from eating raw eggs outweights the benefits of the protein. Today, there are many better and more efficient ways to get protein and other vitamins and minerals, such as power bars, drink mixes, supplements, etc.
