Have a Nose Bleed? Bacon Can Help!

We all know bacon is amazing. It tastes good, smells good, and even has the power to make the strictest of vegans knees buckle but did you know that it also has the ability to save people’s lives. That’s right those beautifully crisped up rashers sitting next to your eggs just might be a medical miracle.

Those of us that love bacon have seen story after story about how bacon is going to kill us so it’s about time we look at the benefits of this cured pork product. There is a rare disorder called Glanzmann Thrombasthenia that can result in life threatening hemorrhage particularly from the nasal vaults. In laymen’s terms that means your nose will start bleeding and won’t stop until you’re dead. But there is new hope for those out there those that suffer with this horrible disorder and the hope comes in the form of, you guessed it, bacon.

Some Doctors have discovered that by packing the nasal cavity with cured pork via a kind of bacon tampon the bleeding stops. Twice a 4 year old child that suffered from Glanzmann Thrombasthenia was admitted to the emergency room with a life endangering nose bleed and twice doctors treated the child with the pork up the nose method. Both times the bleeding stopped within 24 hours and the child was discharged within 72 hours after the treatment.

This is a huge breakthrough in the medical/bacon world and to think if some people (like health nuts, vegans, and some government officials) had their way we wouldn’t even have bacon and that 4 year old child could have died.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, bacon truly is the most amazing food on the planet. It goes with everything pancakes, chocolate, burgers, and life.

Why Does Science Hate Bacon?

Why does science always try to take away everything we love? Any time people start enjoying their life by eating a Bacon Cheese Burger, doing recreational drugs, or burning old car tires in my back yard just to see how much smoke I can make, science comes along and throws some kind of study in my face telling us to stop doing everything fun.

I found a bunch of news websites reporting that a new study is showing eating bacon will increase your chances at getting pancreatic cancer by 19%. Now whether or not this is true is not the reason I’m upset about this issue. The thing that is really ticking me off it the way it’s being reported.

First off, every website is calling this a new study. Well I seem to remember reading this exact same thing a couple months ago. In fact it’s like every 5 or 6 months a “new study” comes out telling us that bacon is going to give us cancer. Either news outlets just rehash this story on slow news days or a lot of money is being wasted doing the same study over and over again.

We get it, Bacon is less healthy then broccoli so why don’t you scientists turn your attention to something meaningful like creating a car that gets 100mpg or figuring out why Jimmy Fallon is still on television?

Another thing that really gets me going is every one of these reports puts bacon in their headline and go on and on about how eating two rashers of bacon a day will kill you. But really the study showed that eating just under 2 ounces if any processed meat will increase your cancer risk. The study it’s self doesn’t single out bacon therefore trying to destroy an entire food industry it just says processed meats but I didn’t see any headlines that read, “Death Deli” or “Stop Putting Sausage in Your Mouth!”

This attack on bacon is very miss leading. Realistically what processed meat is eaten the most? I would make the claim that lunch meat is the most consumed processed meat. Sure people enjoy some bacon with breakfast but in today’s fast paced world most people only get time to cook bacon on the weekends but lunch meat might get consumed everyday. It’s quick and easy to throw sliced turkey on bread and head out the door lunch in hand. That is the entire point of lunch meat; they even put the word lunch in the name. I know people that eat lunch meat sandwiches every day for lunch and although they don’t claim it’s healthy eating they might not realize the risk.

By using bacon in their headlines to grab people’s attention then just barley mentioning that it’s really all processed meats these reporters are keeping people in the dark about the dangers of their roast beef hoagie.

Does this mean you should stop eating all processed meats ,move to an eco friendly farm, and start calling yourself Starchild Moonface? Of coarse not. Once again it all comes down just common sense. Instead of swinging by McDonalds every morning and pounding down McGriddles try some fruit or yogurt every once and a while. It’s really that simple.
