Bacon is good for your waistline (and won’t kill you)

Bacon might actually be good for you If you think eating bacon will kill you, think again.

According to health and fitness guru Mina Yun:

1) Bacon fat is 50% monunsaturated (the same kind as olive oil), and has antioxidants that are more powerful than vitamin E.

2) Bacon from pastured pigs that forage in the sun is also a good source of vitamin D.

3) Bacon is high in saturated fat and cholesterol, but that doesn’t matter because there’s nothing wrong with saturated fat and cholesterol.  (read: “The Cholesterol Myths” by Uffe Ravnskoff.)

4) Bacon’s high-fat content keeps you satisfied and levels out your blood sugar, which will keep you from eating that donut later on, which will help you lose weight.

5) Sodium nitrite – a traditional curing salt for bacon, as well as a growing health concern – might not be such a bad thing, afterall.

6) Not all bacon is created equal. Choose wisely.
