Are raw eggs in eggnog safe to consume?


Question from Lisle: What do you think about eggnog — are raw eggs really that good for you?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I would turn that around — are they really that bad for you? I would not recommend eggnog or raw eggs at all if you're on chemo or radiation or whenever the immune system would be potentially repressed, from a food safety standpoint.
