Re: @Steve Davies 3
if you want to live longer, the medically- and nutritionally-correct approach is: eat American bacon.
Family average age is, sadly, in the late 40s. If eating American bacon leads to longer age, then I think I am going to be one who lowers our average! Streaky is pretty bad, but crisp as well? Ugh. Horrible idea. I'd rather take the "die young" option than eat that stuff!
