Researchers in New York and Edinburgh developed a new method to grow eggs from very early-stage cells obtained from ovary tissue, a team reported in the journal Molecular Human Reproduction.

The eggs were grown to the point at which they could be fertilized.

This had previously been achieved with mouse egg cells, while human eggs had been successfully cultivated starting from a much later stage of development.

Why Adding Milk To Your Scrambled Eggs Is a Mistake

  Why Adding Milk To Your Scrambled Eggs Is a Mistake Breakfast has long been touted as the most important meal of the day. Southern cooks readily agree, having great recipe collections for breakfast casseroles, pancakes, and shrimp and grits. Good quality eggs don’t need a lot of extra ingredients to make them stand out. If you are in the habit of adding milk or cream while whisking eggs, you can stop. Now. Milk won’t make eggs creamier, fluffier, or stretch the dish out. What the milk really does is dilute the flavor of the eggs, making them rubbery, colorless, and something similar to what you would find at a school cafeteria.

"The latest study is the first time a human egg has been developed in the lab from its earliest stage to full maturity," said a statement from the University of Edinburgh.

Experts who did not take part in the research hailed the achievement as promising, but stressed it would take years to translate into a safe and proven therapy.

The technique holds promise specifically for women who have to go through sterilizing treatments such as chemotherapy.

It would allow them to freeze early-stage egg cells before undergoing treatment, to be matured in the lab at a later time to be fertilised with sperm to make a baby.

Traditionally, cancer patients can have a piece of ovary removed before chemotherapy, but reimplanting the tissue later may risk reintroducing cancer.

This Small Thing Makes My Scrambled Eggs a Billion Times Better

  This Small Thing Makes My Scrambled Eggs a Billion Times Better It's really not that impressive, but I'm cool with itI'm tired. You probably are, too. There are both general and specific reasons underpinning this, but today for me, it's due at least in part due to the pressure of writing stories that must "restore your faith in humanity" or be "utterly life-changing." I don't have that depth of emotional capacity to spare at the moment, but I can tell you about the simple, little thing I do to make my scrambled eggs markedly, unfailingly better.

In a first, scientists have nurtured human eggs to maturity in a laboratory . Evelyn Telfer and her colleagues at the University of Edinburgh were able to bring 10% of immature eggs into maturity by careful controlling environmental conditions like oxygen levels, hormones, growth protein

"This is an elegant piece of work, demonstrating for the first time that human eggs can be grown to maturity in a laboratory," Channa Jayasena of the Imperial College London said in a comment on the study results.

"It would take several years to translate this into a therapy. However, this is an important breakthrough, which could offer hope to women with infertility in the future."

Azim Surani of the University of Cambridge pointed out that the eggs yielded by the research were smaller than normal, and "it might be of interest to test the developmental potential of these eggs".

And Robin Lovell-Badge of The Francis Crick Institute said the procedure was "really quite inefficient", with only nine out of dozens of early-stage cells becoming mature eggs.

Study co-author Evelyn Telfer of the University of Edinburgh said the team was now studying how healthy the eggs are.

"We also hope to find out, subject to regulatory approval, whether they can be fertilised," she said.

12 Eggs A Week Not Linked To Cardiovascular Risk: Study .
A study found that an intake of 12 eggs per week did not increase cardiovascular risk factors in diabetics, challenging prior conflicting findings. Researchers from the University of Sydney in Australia found consuming up to a dozen eggs a week did not increase the risk of heart problems in diabetics, contradicting previous claims of adverse effects. The findings emerged from an extended study conducted at the Sydney Medical School and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, following a previous trial with similar results.
