    I might be fooled, but I don't think my bacon has sulphites.

If their lipid profiles were highly saturated like beef or lamb, fish like salmon would literally freeze and be unable to be flexible in cold environments. Perhaps the increased animal-based PUFA is making your cells "slipperier" and increasing skin elasticity. It's possible. Salmon or fatty poultry could have an even greater effect. I've heard of people improving skin with high intakes of fatty fish and nuts at the expense of other forms of fats. YMMV.
    does this apply to macadmia nuts as well?

    i dont know eating that much bacon per day= terrible ratio of omega 6 to omega 3. Maybe the ratio is irrelevant to some?

    How can you know that? He could be eating some fish, or popping a few fish oil pills.

    In the context of a primal diet where overall PUFA is kept low O6/O3 is no big deal. Yes, fairly irrelevant for anybody when we are talking about O6/O3 from a well sourced animal or nuts rather than rancid O6 from seed pressed oils. HUGE DIFFERENCE. Basically, as long as you are not eating large amounts rancid O6 oils and you eat about a pound of fatty fish a week your going to find you take care of that ratio with or without bacon. Besides that pork has a relatively bad rap for this, and mostly undeserved IMO.

    Only 10% of bacons fat is PUFA (and this is conventional data). Almost half of its fat is MUFA with high oleic acid (that fat purported to improve lipid profiles and why everyone goes gaga over olive oil). "From a health standpoint, oleic acid exhibits further benefits. It has been shown to slow the development of heart disease, and promotes the production of antioxidants." Boom antioxidants! The rest is good ole natural saturated fat, and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Bacon....superfood? YES!

    I'm still waiting for the "Kraken index" thing to be put on the web. Would like to see his breakdown. I understand he put a lot of work into it. http://chriskresser.com/rhr-live-fro...ion-and-health

    Any reason to eat more bacon is good enough for me!

    We get our bacon from US Wellness (when they have it)... sugar free, from pastured pork. Somehow, I think the O6s in it are not anywhere near as problematic as they would be from processed "vegetable" oils.

    Still waiting for my eczema to clear up completely. I think it's getting somewhat better.

    As far as I'm concerned, bacon is the greatest invention in the history of mankind.

    I'm with you, Knifegill. My skin is MUCH better since bacon.

    I'm thinking about putting bacon fat on my hands and see if it helps the vitiligo. I have it mostly on skin that is dry (hands, feet, elbows), and on arms and tummy it has mostly filled itself in since gong bacon. Plus I would have that bacon smell under my DKNY perfume...mmmh....

    Yes and no. Yes, in the sense that it's still a longchain PUFA. However, the omega 6 in macadamias is linoleic acid, not arachidonic acid. But it's still a whole food, so I wouldn't worry about it. Walnuts are incredibly high in omega 6 - far more than most processed vegetable oils - but it's a whole food. It comes with all the antioxidants, phytochemicals and minerals that nature designed to work in kind with that nut to grow it into a tree. You're eating a whole organism, so I don't fear walnuts. Granted, I don't eat any nuts every day, but to treat nuts the same as vegetable oils just because they both are high PUFA's isn't fair. It would be like calling an apple a bag of sugar, and we know that's not true.

    That being said, IMO, poultry and pork are much better staples than nuts in equal PUFA content. I'll always take the animal fat/protein over an equal amount of vegetable fat/protein.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Most mornings I forget now to do anything to my face, where before primal I would have a whole system to try to keep it from being oily and to manage breakouts. I enjoy bacon a few times a week and salmon almost weekly.
