An article in the New York Times today brings to light a new study on the nutritious benefits of bacon. Have you ever been advised not to freeze bacon? That's because it contains a particular kind of insoluable fat that breaks down easily when frozen...or cooked! In fact, the study shows that this bacon "super-fat" not only resists absorbtion into the body - it also binds to other fats and keeps them from being absorbed as well! So never again ought we omit the bacon from our breakfast scramble - that bacon could be saving us egg calories! In fact, when shopping for bacon, it would be nutritionally advisable to avoid purchasing the leaner cuts.
The study advises readers that these fats are present in bacon cuts only - not the whole pig. So for you salami- and pork-chop-lovers, don't think these means you can up your consumption. But if you do continue to indulge in these non-bacon cuts - be sure to wrap them in bacon!
April Fools. Muahahaha.
