I think this article should have stressed that the yolk was not only the main source of choline in the egg, but the primary source of ALL the nutrition of the egg, with the possible exception of protein of which the white is composed. People think that eating only whites is a "good" thing, but they are getting little nutrition in whites.
Needing to be on a low histaimine diet, I also would like to point out that, per the instructional materials given to me by my health care professionals, the whites are very high in histamines, but the yolks are a "0" on the histamine level. Therefore, I ONLY eat the yolk. Yes, it took a while to get used to tossing all those whites out, but realizing how adversely they were affecting how I felt, it became easier.
