1. Are eggs vegetarian or non-vegetarian? Finally, the debate is ended by scientists
Well, the answer to this is that eggs are vegetarian. According to a scientific study, eggs have 3 parts- the shell, albumen or the egg white and the yolk. While the egg white is only protein and contains no animal cell, the egg yolk consists of protein, fat and cholesterol. Also, the eggs that we eat on a daily basis do not have embryos, are unfertilized and are thus not at a stage where we would be eating an animal.
However, a lot depends on your cultural background and whether you feel like eating a particular food or not is morally justifiable.
