Bacon Everyday?

Don't get me wrong, I like bacon. Who doesn't? I mean there are countless websites devoted to eating bacon, cooking bacon, wearing bacon..whatever. However, should someone eat bacon everyday? Common sense and most doctors will tell you no. How often do we listen to common sense and doctors? This article went relatively unnoticed by the world a few months ago.

Bacon and Eggs could help pregnant women boost their baby's intelligence

They say pigs are pretty smart, so why wouldn't their meat make you smart too. It makes perfect sense to me.

Anyway back to my point, I do not eat bacon everyday. I pick one day of the week to binge on anything I want. The day before my "eat whatever I want day" I usually buy a pound of fresh bacon from the meat counter at the Whole Foods down the street. I eat about 3/4 of the bacon myself and I feel satisfied for another week. I don't have a heart attack, gain weight, get a stomach ache or having any ill effects. I do have to drink a few glasses of water due to the high amount of sodium.
