"I know that there are no general rules of health because there was a gentleman living in New York a few years ago who was one hundred and fifteen. He was the oldest man living in New York, and he was doing quite well. He lived on his own, got around with no trouble, and could deal with everything that came his way. People asked him, of course, 'What's your diet? What're you eating?' He said that from the ages of ninety to one hundred and fifteen, his diet consisted mostly of three gallons of Thunderbird wine a week, and bread fried in fatback. When they asked him why he didn't fry his bread in bacon, he said that bacon was TOO LEAN. Here's a man who knew exactly what his body needed, and he lived a rich, full life on what one would think is farking rocket fuel. And if he'd gone to a doctor, the doctor would've been, 'What the fark is the matter with you?! You're out of control, Goddammit! You know what? You're gonna have to start eating vegetables.' And he would've, and he'd have been dead in a week!" - Lewis Black

Niacin. Not bacon.

And the whole anti-oxidants thing looks like a failed, or at least marginal, effect.

It's the preservatives.  That's why life expectancy has been growing since food has been being processed with more modern preservatives.

Subby, without going into great detail of how pigs are constructed, all pork companies want to sell you more bacon. -1

I am a huge supporter of scientific and medical discovery, and actively read the Journal of the American Medical Association, Journal of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy, and a number of others. With great enjoyment I inhale each.

If any of them tried to suggest I not eat bacon, I'd smack a biatch.

A puff off of a cigarette containsoxygen, oxygen is great for your body!  Smoke up!

Yeah, how about we just do paprika.  It's better than bacon(at least the real paprika is).

If I had to choose between bacon or steak, I think I'd just shoot myself

Granddad lived to 99 [1]. Breakfast  every day was lots of bacon, two eggs over easy, toast and enough coffee to drown a platoon into which he poured  real cream.  Lunch - pork chops, creamed corn, tomato slices, yeast rolls and more coffee.Supper - steak, potatoes, green beans cooked with bacon fat, yeast rolls and at least one, if not two slices of homemade pie and  more coffee.

Died at 99 in his sleep. No sickness of illness. F*ck the food police and their 'rules'.

[1] Grandmother died at 101. Her last two years were hard on her, she said, because missed cooking for 'her boy'.

Maybe not live longer, but live happier.

I never bypass bacon.

Going to be 60 in November and everyone says I can pass for 52, or if I color my hair (i'm grey) I could pass for 45.  I attribute this good fortune to eating bacon at least 3x a week.  and staying out of the sun.  no, I don't put my pic on the internet.

And no, I am not fat.  In fact I have lost 90lbs over the last year.  But I still had my bacon cheeseburgers.

If only people realized how much of science we do is exactly like this. Biased and distorted...that is when the methodology is sound, which is a whole nother issue.

Go on. Tell us what other sciences are "biased and distorted."

Why do I want to say your first two answers are "evolution" and "climate science"?

So foods packed with niacin, B3 is key to longer living roundworms. Obviously bacon is the choice for healthy old people. Perfect logic.

If bacon is wrong, I don't want to be right.
 
2013-10-07 09:42:12 PM
All that study proves is bacon may be making my round worms bigger.

Your body keeps itself alive longer to experience more bacon.

Ask any starving person, if eating bacon would keep them alive. You'll get a resounding YES! Unless the starving person is a PETA member.
