Bacon, fat, and other good things


Bacon = high cholesterol = false.

True, bacon may not be the best meat in the world. Bacon is usually cured with nitrates and has plenty of salt and sugar. There's plenty of other meats that are better for you... grass-fed meats, especially.

World Renowned Heart Surgeon Speaks Out on What Really Causes Heart Disease

Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.

Ding, ding, ding!

That's all folks.
