    In the Spirit of Perfection,




    How To Boil an Egg: The Science, the Controversy, and the Perfect Yolk


    1 / 13
    What makes up an egg
    Egg whites, also called the albumen, are about 90 percent water and 10 percent protein. In a process called coagulation, simmering heat jostles those tightly furled amino acids that make up the protein, bumping them up against their neighboring water molecules. Simmer the egg just right, and you get a richly textured albumen. Keep that water boiling too long, however, and you've just made rubber.

    Experiment with heating eggs by hard cooking eggs, by making deviled eggs, or by making flan.

    Go ahead, enjoy that morning mug. A new study suggests that people who are in the habit of drinking coffee regularly may be protected against malignant melanoma, the leading cause of skin-cancer death in the United States.

    People in the study who drank four or more cups of coffee daily were 20 percent less likely to develop malignant melanoma than noncoffee drinkers, according to the study published today (Jan. 20) in JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

    Is This the New Iron Deficiency?


    If you’re lacking energy, easily annoyed, and generally feel sort of off, look to your diet. While iron deficiencies may get all the ink, it’s not the only mineral that could be missing from your meals. Lack of magnesium — a common but silent deficiency — impacts about half of the population, data suggests.
