Also note, didn't it say these people ate bacon every day and only had a 29% increase? Most of us don't eat bacon that much.
Yep. I don't even recall the last time I ate bacon. The thing that caught my eye was pancreatic cancer. I don't know if you've ever known anyone who's had it but it's a particularly nasty form of cancer.
Pancreatic cancer got my dad at age 60 about 11 years ago. His doctor sent him to the hospital thinking it was a gall bladder problem. He died 9 days later - only 7 days after being diagnosed. The doctor told us that only about 5% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive longer than 6 months.
I do my best to do all things in moderation - but we all have to die of something. If it's bacon that gets me, so be it.
