Why must we use Pasteurized eggs!

If you are using raw eggs in your cooking, is it best to use pasteurized eggs.

Raw eggs as we all know, may have some food borne illnesses, salmonella is the most common in uncooked eggs.

I love soft boiled eggs or runny egg yolks (drizzle some sweet soy sauce and a dash of white pepper) on my food. 
Using pasteurized eggs will eliminate the chances of me getting food poisoning.

Where to buy pasteurized eggs?

I have seen cartons of pasteurized egg whites sold in supermarket but yet to find pasteurized whole eggs!
(Let me know if you come across some in the grocery stores in Australia and Perth to be specific)

Hence what do we do if we can not find pasteurized eggs?

In few steps, very simple steps, you can make pasteurized eggs anytime!
