When advertising a paper could lead to falsely demonize eggs...

In a recent Eurekalert the University of Montreal reported the interesting work of Stéphanie Fulton in Neuropsychopharmacolgy. I haven't still read the paper in details but the data in the abstract are in complete contradiction with the comparison entitling the Eurekalert news...
Fried eggs are not a high fat diet component.
You don't believe me?
Look at the data from the USDA database:

Macronutrients for 100g:

Water g 69.47
Energy kcal 196
Protein g 13.61
Total lipid (fat) g 14.84
Carbohydrate, by difference g 0.83
Fiber, total dietary g 0.0
Sugars, total g 0.40

Fatty acids, total saturated g 4.323
Fatty acids, total monounsaturated g 6.182
Fatty acids, total polyunsaturated g 3.251
Fatty acids, total trans g 0.041
Cholesterol mg 401

4,323/14,84= 29% of sat fats,
42% of monounsaturated
22% of PUFA.
So eggs even fried are not a good source of Sat Fats but on the contrary a source of monounsaturated fatty acids. And monounsaturated is the fatty acid in the diet which do not provoke a dysfunctioning dopamine system...
One have to eat 29 eggs per a day to maintain this proportion of sat fats...
So the study of Fulton on rats is quite difficult to imagine in human and seems to be an example of a paper which wants to prove too much about sat fats so that it becomes unreal.
