    I stick to grass-fed beef for the bulk of my meat needs. If I could find fully pastured pork, or pork that was only fed things that an animal would be able/willing to eat in its natural environment (roots, shoots, bugs, fruits, nuts, etc.), then I would totally eat that bacon all the time.
    I've found some wild boar meat at the local Sprouts store that is great but otherwise I agree that pork is pretty much not doing me any favors.

      I got some bulk pastured Berkshire pork, and it's amazing, just amazing how much better it is. I can order pastured pig bacon (no sugar, no nitrates/nitrites), but it's about $8 a pound. I love it, but I don't eat it all the time.

        My fave local pig farmer raises pastured Berkshires. We need to order another pig from him soon. Such amazing pork, I can't do the cheap stuff anymore.

So to clear up these scaremongering statistics that the press band about I'll attempt to explain what they mean.
            They also didn't mention what the bacon was eaten with -- a nest full of pastured eggs and some yummy vegetables? Or (more likely) pancakes, waffles, HFCS, or CAFO eggs from sick chickens...
