I love bacon, but only eat meat I consider to be "ethically farmed" so I buy in bulk from a free range farm. check them out on Havoc Pork : Once you've tasted Havoc Pork you'll know the difference.
I've never tasted bacon as good as this anywhere in the world! Happy pigs are yummy pigs I guess!
I don't eat a lot of it either, but I enjoy it every now and then.
If there's only 0.3g in 3 strips, that's a pretty minimal amount of omega 6. Don't strip off the fat! Nuts, olive oil, poultry and other sources will give you way more omega 6 than that.

I LOVE bacon... but I only eat the really good stuff. Boar bacon made by my butcher. It's PERFECT.
Now, because I only eat the best bacon, and it's sort of a limited supply (and/or very expensive to get more when not buying a whole pig) I only eat it very occasionally- like every 2 months or so. It's a wonderful, delicious treat.
i do this too...though my slices are at least half of an inch wide.

Well, considering I've got 3 thick slabs of it frying right now, I would probably have to say that I do eat more bacon than you
I was just thinking about eating MOAR bacon.
Keeps me from eating milkshakes.
I rarely eat it. Not even 1 lb a month. I cook it when I need bacon fat and that is about it. Bacon seems to be worshiped here so many people don't think twice about it but my personal feeling is that it should be limited. Same way I feel about fat overall. I think the "good fat" message has been taken way out of context in both primal and paleo.
Bow down. Bow down, and worship at the Altar of Bacon unbelievers!
Swift and terrible judgement shall befall all infidels!
There is no god but Bacon, and I am his prophet!
