A few weeks ago I wrote a post called, Bacon or Life: I Pick Bacon, about how research showed that bacon consumption leads to cancer. Well today I am happy to report that bacon may cause cancer but it can also save your life during a heart attack.
Dr. Nathan Bryan a researcher at the University of Texas in Houston says that bacon is good for your heart and could stop a heart attack. He says that the nitrates (that may cause cancer) form a nitric oxide gas in the body that can open clogged arteries.
This just goes to show you that as long as you eat things like bacon in moderation, you will live a long happy life. Take that you crazy vegetarians!
