    Don't fear the bacon...

    A big report came out recently indicating that bacon (and bologna, and hot dogs) are somewhat carcinogenic.

    However, compared to other stuff that we mess with every day, not THAT carcinogenic:

    Air pollution and alcohol are also linked to cancer.


    Come on baby
    (Don't fear the bacon)
    Baby take my ham

    We'll be able to fry
    (Don't fear the bacon)
    Baby I'm your short order cook

    and yet again...


    ...sola dosis facit venenum

    I'm gonna get that as a tattoo.

    If you eat bacon in the amount that is suggested in the studies (and you are reasonably informed about nutrition), you deserve whatever happens to you...I mean really, more than one serving of processed meat every day? How can anyone one find that even remotely healthy?

    I love bacon...in moderation, very occasionally.



    The thing, though, to remember is that synergistic effects can increase the risk factor in multiplicative ways (for example, the risk to asbestos workers that smoke is worse than that of the risk of smoking AND the risk of asbestosis). We have no idea what those ways are yet, so...if you know that a daily bacon ration is just as bad as a pack a day habit, and can cut both of those out, the chance then for something like getting cancer from working outside all day might decrease.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Unless you live in New York, Utah, Colorado, or some other place that has a high ambient radiation level.

    LOL - I can smoke a pack a day in Northern Michigan and still have less cancer risk than a nonsmoker in the Colorado highlands...

    P.S. - I rarely eat bacon (a lot of cash for a strip of fat), but I eat a lot of smoked food, which is bad for me...

    It is if you're a Londoner! We have some of the worst air in Europe, which is why the bus fleet is converting to electric/diesel hybrids.

    Actually, the food information has been out there for years. If you gorge on preservatives and red meat, it's unhealthy, but a little bit of what you fancy will have a negligible effect. I had venison on Monday and Tuesday, and that was my meat for the week: let's hope I survive. At least chocolate is safe!
