Just to be clear, although I have cautioned against the consumption of pork, I am NOT anti-pork (or anti-bacon). My concern about pork is that you are cautious about the source of the pork you consume—just as you should be cautious about the source of your beef, eggs and poultry. If your pork is pasture-raised and the pigs live in their natural setting eating pig-appropriate food, then pork can be a nutritious part of your diet.

Bacon's primary asset is its fat, and that fat— surprise! – is primarily monounsaturated. Fifty percent of the fat in bacon is monounsaturated, mostly consisting of oleic acid, the type so valued in olive oil. About three percent of that is palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturate with valuable antimicrobial properties. About 40 percent of bacon fat is saturated, a level that worries fat phobics, but is the reason why bacon fat is relatively stable and unlikely to go rancid under normal storage and cooking conditions. That's important, given the fact that the remaining 10 percent is in the valuable but unstable form of polyunsaturates.7

Pork fat also contains a novel form of phosphatidylcholine that possesses antioxidant activity superior to Vitamin E. This may be one reason why lard and bacon fat are relatively stable and not prone to rancidity from free radicals.8

Bacon fat from pastured pigs also comes replete with fat-soluble vitamin D, provided it's bacon from foraging pigs that romp outdoors in the sun for most of year. Factory-farmed pigs kept indoors and fed rations from soy, casein, corn meal, and other grains, are likely to show low levels of Vitamin D.

Bacon's smell and taste are so seductive that many vegetarians fear it as "the gateway meat." lmao2.gif

Don’t hate the messenger: according to a study earlier this year, death by bacon may be a real possibility. A study published in the journal BMC Medicine of 448,568 people found that eating processed foods like bacon, sausage, ham, and other processed meats increases the risk of dying prematurely. The massive long-term study followed people in 10 European countries for 12.7 years.

After adjusting for smoking, inactivity, other dietary factors, and other lifestyle factors, researchers concluded that, “significant associations with processed meat intake were observed for cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and ‘other causes of death.’”

The researchers found that those people eating more than 160g of processed meat a day – approximately the equivalent of two sausages and a slice of bacon – were 44 percent more likely to die in the follow-up period than those eating about 20g.

The consumption of poultry was not related to all-cause mortality.

Heart disease was the primary cause of death during the study but cancer was also high. Other causes of death were also elevated among the people eating higher amounts of processed meat.

Does that mean you have to give up bacon? Of course not. But it does mean you should at least know the risks of eating it or any other processed meat on a daily basis.

There is a high price to pay for the trend toward “bacon-on-everything” that seems to be so popular these days. It’s hard to argue with such an enormous and long-term study. And, contrary to misinformation and propaganda I’ve seen floating around on the Internet, bacon (and other processed meat) is clearly not a health food.
