Eating eggs while you're sick or have a cold

Is it bad for you? I read online that eggs are suggested as they are easily digestable and it keeps your iron levels up, but I have a Health book that says otherwise, and it says that bacteria loves feeding on the iron in your body. Sooooo which is it? Thanks!

Here is a story I learned from my old Biology 12 teacher:

People in some 3rd world African country are malnourished. Early aide workers seeing the Africans so malnourished, they would feed them vitamins and such. The malnourished African would die shortly after.

Why is this? The body natural response to some infection is to "hide" nutrients, vitamin, minerals from bacteria and starve them. Feeding vitamins and minerals defeat the purpose.

Eggs being so common in a normal person's diet, I think it should be alright.

Not sure how reliable this source is but this applies to lyme disease + zinc:
Why the Human Body

Quote:
Lyme disease appears to cause zinc to be sequestered (‘hidden’ or stored) by the body in an attempt to reduce the growth and proliferation of the Lyme disease bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi (Kehl-Fie, et al, 2010)
