Those people trying to ban bacon should be banned from reproducing.

As long as it's not Maple, bacon is good.

I'm pretty sure smoked cured meat is one of the foundations of civilizations

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Heh. Wacko PETA related group, nothing to see here.

I don't think these people know what processed meat is. They should be trying to ban SPAM.

...the team upped its game this season with the introduction of bacon scratch-and-sniff wear and official bacon caps, to go along with all of its porcine comestibles.

Who could resist?

Try the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. The Washington-based nonprofit, which promotes vegan diets and alternatives to animal testing.

"It's really about the larger campaign and really getting the message out that bacon and processed meats really are not safe for consumption."

Really?

Fer fark's sake.

Yes, I know bacon is bad for me.

Cancer?  Pah.  Small price to pay for hundreds (thousands?) of enjoyable meals.  You vegans go right ahead and live a few years longer, but do farking please STFU and keep your vegetable-fueled misery to yourselves.

You can have my bacon when you drill it out of my cold dead arteries and process it into pig feed so it can become bacon again.

Bacon only contains carcinogens if you cook it. (They are created by the act of cooking of any meat or any browning done to anything in existence, including cooked tofu).

My suggested solution? Eat bacon raw, straight of the screaming suckling pig's not dead body!

Ow! That was my feelings!: Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Heh. Wacko PETA related group, nothing to see here.


Yeah, it's the dishonesty that bothers me.  If they named themselves "Physicians Committee for Animal Rights" that would be one thing.  But one, pushing a vegan diet is NOT responsible medicine, and, two, the fact that they're flat-out lying about their motivations makes them pretty reprehensible, however much one might otherwise respect their message.

To be clear, I'm not saying that it's bad medical advice to suggest a vegan diet can be healthy, or even that a carefully-tailored vegan died could be healthier than the average American diet.  But to say a vegan diet is far healthier than one that includes ANY animal products?  That it's the PREFERRED diet for purely medical reasons?  That's the kind of lie that ought to get you your license yanked, if you have one.  You now have the same level of credibility as the homeopath.

NakedDrummer: Ah, vegans. The only group that's actually more retarded than creationists.


There's a distinction to be made between people who follow or promote a vegan (or vegetarian) diet for ethical reasons, and those that do so for "heath reasons."  If a person limits themself to a diet that uses fewer animal products (or none) for religious or ethical reasons, I admire that, so long as they don't become self-righteous or demand that others follow suit.

It's when they start arguing that "humans weren't meant to eat meat" than you should drag out the Peter Griffin chart.

One could make an analogous distinction between those who admit that the Biblical account of creation isn't scientific but choose to believe it anyway, and those who go down the "Evolution is only a theory!" road.

According to http://www.physicianscam.com/

"The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a wolf in sheep's clothing. PCRM is a fanatical animal rights group that seeks to remove eggs, milk, meat and seafood from the American diet, and to eliminate the use of animals in scientific research."

"Less than 5 percent of PCRM's members are physicians," Newsweekwrote in February 2004.

Can someone explain why Americans cook their bacon so that it has the texture and taste of tree bark.

So it will be crispy.  Crispy bacon is far, far superior to soggy, floppy, limp bacon.

Can't say I agree with the ethical reasons. Why? Cause vegans load up on stuff like wheat, soybeans, and corn. These big agra crops kill LOTS of animals and decimate the environment. Harvesters.. pesticides.. sorry, but there is nothing ethical about going on the all-Monsanto diet.

On top of it, you end up with a diet humans simply can't survive on. Vegans require taking tons of supplements and fortified food, and look malnourished anyways.

If linker3000 is from the UK, perhaps the bacon there has a higher meat-to-fat ratio than that in America? Fat tastes better when fully rendered and crispy, but the meat can suffer.

In any case, I have found that if you cook a pound of bacon at a time, in two batches of about half a pound each, and you leave a few strips from the last batch in the pan, you end up with a variety of textures ranging from "wriggly like Gollum likes his fish," to "after it cools off, you can make bacon bits by grinding it between your palms."

At this point, the adventurous cook will typically reduce temperatures somewhat and proceed with a second or third pound, and contemplate the magic moment at which they've transitioned from merely frying bacon in a pan to deep-frying bacon in bacon fat.

I'm getting the impression you're describing a vegan diet being about eating vegans that died.

My first reaction was "then don't go to the ballpark."


My second was "let them ban it. That's more for the rest of us."


My third was to go have a have a handful of bacon bits and calm down.

Agreed. They seem to be three lies, not unlike MRE's (NOT meals, NOT ready, and NOT to eat). They're NOT Physicians (anyone with a credit card can give them money become a member, they're NOT responsible, and they're NOT about medicine. My guess is if you follow the money, it all leads back to, well I'm not naming any names, but their initials are People for the (Very Questionably) Ethical Treatment of Animals.
