Eating bacon is very, very bad for you, according to this recent study.

What's a girl to do?

My "beef" with the study is that they consider bacon to be as evil as hot dogs. I disagree.

Oh well, something's gotta kill me...

They have it wrong...bacon is its own food group. It's health food. ;-)

Unless you eat all bacon all the time, you're safe. An all cauliflower diet would be deadly as well, even though cauliflower is good for you.

I'm getting to where I enjoy meats less and less as I age but not bacon. I think I could go veggie but I don't think I could give up bacon. What is in this stuff to make it so tasty?

Fat. Salt. A bit of sugar. It's all good... :)

If bacon had booze in it, it would represent the Basic Four Food groups of the American diet.

Bacon is so utilitarian. You can eat it by itself, or use it to season other food; you can eat it hot or cold; you can eat it on sandwiches or salads, or top your meatloaf with it. You can eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can use it for a main course or use it for hors d'oeuvres. You can cook it crisp or soft, and can get it sliced thick or thin.

It smells good and tastes good, and if you're camping and want to meet your neighbors, try cooking it over a campfire. Now there's a little bit of heaven.

How can that be bad for you?

And, apparently the British diet, too.

Bump. I have a question about bacon fat. How long does it last in the fridge? I have had some for a long time (I know, surprise and dismay that I haven't used it as any bacon lover ought to do. TIA
One of the Nancys :D
