Seriously, I don't have any idea that bacon has a lots of benefits in terms of health. Probably because, I really thought that it's totally bad for the health because it has a preservatives which cab cause cancer. But I was became shocked a little bit when I've read an article that bacons are good for pregnant women for the development of the brain of the child. Aside from that, bacons are also good in removing hangovers. :)

well, since I haven't had a hangover since 1972, and I haven't eaten bacon since the mid-1990's I think neither one will be in my dietary future As I tell folks, the last 3 times I ate bacon I went home from work sick twice and wish I had the 3rd time.

Hi friend! I think for everything that we have, there are benefits as well as negative effects to our health. So it's a good thing if we can have moderate intake of some foods because I still believe too much of anything is not good. I also love to eat bacon but since it is that expensive, we don't eat this type of food too often.

I think everyone knows about bacon being could for getting rid of hangovers,a lot of my friends and I have a bacon sandwich the morning after a night out.I think some bacon is worse for you than other types it just depends on how fatty it is and how much it has been processed.Lean Bacon from the butchers that hasn't been processed and doesn't have much fat on it is probably relatively healthy.As well as tasting a lot nicer,about thirty miles away from where I live there is a place that makes bacon from pigs they raise themselves and its the nicest bacon I have ever tasted.

Well i always knew that any meat is not as healthful as vegetables, meat contains fat, which isn't any good, also, if meat is cooked on oil. So try eating more vegetables haha. Happy mylotting!

I myself haven't considered bacon as a healthy dish considering that it has lots of fats. (Unless you get those lean ones) The only thing good I know about it is its taste. Nice piece of info, though. It's the first time I heard that bacon's good for brain development of babies.

People need pork to live healthy. But dont over do it. I knew a friend who ate one lb. of bacon 2-3 times a week. Sorry to say hes not very healthy now.

Pork meat, so this includes bacon as well, contains: inositol. This is an important substance people do need to stay healthy. I think every kind of food we eat has it's pro and contra. BTW it's the first time I read/hear that you can get cancer from eating pork meat. I never heard about that. Must be a secret as well that bacon is good in removing hangovers since those with hangovers never eat it.
