Obviously, but it's a class association.

But there's a big problem when it comes to controlling the use of the egg. You can't control it like the use of doping. So it wouldn't make sense to ban the egg when you coudln't follow if somebody uses it.
We all know it has nothing to do with eggs, but with multi-million dollar treatments and medical staffs.
