    My Mom grew up on an island farm with bacon grease and lard as their primary fat supply. They ate fish, chicken, eggs, pork and beef. Fruit in season. Canned or stored veggies from their garden. Rarely sugar. She's going to be 97 this year, takes no meds and is going strong.

    I imagine she did! Maybe it is genes, in which case I hope I inherited the right ones. But to be cautious I'll eat well and take my supplements, LOL.

    I saw that article and I must say that there just might be hope for fat to come back as a healthy food.
    By The Ancestral Fire - insights and opinions regarding primal living.

    As a friend once said, "Bacon is the Journey of food. You may pretend to hate it, but secretly you still love it."
