It seems that there a lot of myths going around about including eggs in your diet. My grandfather used to have an egg every morning, and he attributed his good health to this (in addition to a glass of wine each night).  However, I also had those aunts and uncles who criticized my grandfather for being so "careless" about his health, especially his cholesterol level.

They want to try new things and are eager to dive into their new environment. This environment includes new classes, new sights, new friends, and unfortunately (for the most part), a new wardrobe. Why?
