The Truth About Bacon

Comment by Jim Campbell

After reading the factual article below, one would need to be on a slow suicide mission to continue eating bacon.

Personally, I like to keep the smell of it wafting through my home to ward off would be Muslim home invaders.

 

 

Here you go my friend, eat this!

It’s also useful for the Muslim “Next door,” who claims he is no longer a follower of Allah.

 

An excellent solution!

If you follow food trends, you know the bacon craze is still on.

It seems whatever is served, this popular processed meat can figure in as a flavor booster, whether it’s for pizza, salad, dessert, or even liquor.

Still, conflicting reports about bacon abound.

First you hear it’s bad for you. Then it’s OK. So, should you eat it or not?

“Bacon smells and tastes great.

However, I have never seen any evidence that it is actually good for you,” says Sonya Angelone, a registered dietitian nutritionist and a nutrition expert in San Francisco.

 

 

People tend to think of bacon as a fresh-cut of meat, like a pork chop or a steak. It’s not. It starts out as pork belly.

Then it goes through heavy processing: curing, smoking, or salting.

This makes the finished product more like hot dogs and lunch meats.

These methods usually use nitrites — a type of salt — and nitrates, which are found naturally in vegetables and convert to nitrite as you chew.

The additives preserve meat, kill bacteria, and boost flavor and color. But they can also damage blood vessels and make a stroke more likely, Angelone says.

Not-So-Great News for Bacon Lovers

Bacon took a hard blow in October 2015, when the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, named processed meat — which includes bacon — a “group 1 carcinogen.”

Please see the entire article below.

 

 

This means there’s enough evidence that eating these foods can cause colon or stomach cancer, says Marji McCullough, a registered dietitian and director of nutritional epidemiology for the American Cancer Society.

Red meat — and that’s what pork belly is considered — was linked to pancreatic and prostate cancers as well.

“Another problem is that bacon is usually part of a not-so-healthy meal like bacon and eggs with toast and butter — no produce — or in a sandwich with lots of mayonnaise and other processed meats,” Angelone says.

“It comes back to what you’re eating overall.”

Mix It With Something Healthy

 

  • Pair it with vitamin C. This can be a small glass of orange or vegetable juice. Better yet, slice a whole food like pineapple or kiwi.
  • If you crave, say, a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, go easy on the meat. Add healthier fillings like fresh avocado or lean turkey.
  • If you eat it in the morning, load up on vegetables and fruit the rest of the day.
  • Most of what people crave is the flavor.
  • Sprinkle crisp bits onto a salad, or use a small dab of fat in your cooking. It can go a long way.
  • Cross the border.
  • Choose Canadian bacon sometimes.
  • It’s much leaner than the regular kind. “Canadian bacon is still processed, but it’s not one big chunk of fat with a little bit of meat,” Angelone says.

THE END

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    The only way I like cabbage is when it is boiled in a small amount of water, with a few pieces of bacon in the bottom of the pot. That flavor is the best, and makes cabbage an enjoyable meal.

    I question the conclusions of studies which don’t take into account the other foods consumed. What about a diet of beans, green vegetables, and bacon? What are the stats for cancers for such a diet? Do the studies differentiate between bacon cured by different methods? If not, how do they know that the cancers are not caused by curing agents, or other foods? Studies which don’t acknowledge and eliminate these and other variables are flawed. Such studies’ conclusions are little more than guesses.

    But I agree that the additives Americans add to bacon gives me great pause. Corporations have far, far too much influence and outright power over regulations and the health industry. Executives of Big Food are sometimes appointed to run agencies which regulate their companies. It’s a sad state of affairs, but you must be very careful when considering how much credence to give scientific studies.

      Exceptional Topcat, in addition there are too many confounding variables to draw any scientific conclusion. I wrote this as a lark, as I wanted to know why all the bacon hype. The Hog industry is in “Hog Heavan,” at the moment. Follow the money!
