The sun causes cancer, too, and probably in higher percentages than bacon...

What I still have trouble believing is that according to the DOE tables, I get less background radiation here at 9300' than I did when I lived on a limestone slab at sea level.

Yah think?  That would be great!  Cause right now I'm puttin' my dermatologist's kids through college.

Would someone please lock this thread, and then ban Denny, and all other hippies from the board? ;D

Dude, I'm not advocating eating or not eating bacon...I just posted the article to start a discussion.

A discussion that should now be closed. You are now un-invited to my party. I'm not having a party, but if I was, you would be un-invited.  ;D

Maybe Denny should get to his house just before the party doesn't start and grab a couple of growlers to go.
Just don't take any bacon.

I thought all weaze's beers were dry-porked?

Also, dry-Jolly Ranchered.

I won't stop eating bacon...or going to the beach...or drinking homebrew. There are so many potential cancer causing things in life. Live life and enjoy it. Moderation is the key. Too much of any one thing is no good for you.

I take the information published from studies like the one posted by Denny and others like it with a grain of salt.
