Most people can eat fresh raw eggs. But not everyone should.

If the eggs are stale, or you are pregnant or might be pregnant, or you are sensitive to eggs you should cook them or check with your doctor before eating raw eggs. Raw eggs can be a source of harmful bacteria if you are pregnant. Pregnancy makes you more sensitive to bacteria which could harm your unborn baby (see Listeriosis)

But if your eggs are really fresh, usually you can eat them raw. Raw eggs are great in smoothies to add extra protein and to make your smoothies more delicious and frothy.
