Brown eggs are healthier than white
Both brown and white eggs offer the same essential nutrients and health benefits. The colour has no correlation with its nutritional value.
Egg yolk can make you gain weight
Egg yolks contain more calories than egg whites, but they also provide vitamins such as A, D and omega-3 fatty acids and hence, it can contribute to a feeling of fullness and curb cravings.
Eggs can increase cholesterol levels
Recent research has shown that the cholesterol in eggs has little impact on blood cholesterol for the majority of people.
Wash eggs to get rid of salmonella
Don't wash eggs as that can remove the natural protective coating on the eggshell, making it more susceptible to contamination. Eggs should be cooked thoroughly to kill any bacteria.

There is no scientific evidence to support this claim. Eggs are a nutritious food that can be consumed year-round without any specific restrictions based on the season.
