    lol careful PB, not sure which part of that sentence is more concerning ;-)

    Most bacon is highly processed meat and should not be eaten too often for several reasons. I eat it maybe once or twice per month, and I fry out as much of the fat as I can. Not because it is high in saturated fat but pork like humans stores a lot of toxins in their bodyfat, so no reason to overdo it. I am a bit surpriced that so many people that call themselves primal and want to be healthy seem to eat bacon on an almost daily basis though...

    The pork we get has no nitrates or sugar.

    But the Okinawans, highly praised for the functional centenarians they are, regularly eat pork.

    Of course nobody is buying bacon with sugar in it. That's just gross!
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    What are these toxins one might expect to find in pork fat?

    Aside from the obvious O6 content, it's been shown that fresh pork is actually worse for you than pork smoked, cured, etc; Those processes are antimicrobial, and PHD did several entries on pathogens between humans and pigs and how there are several infections that affect both humans and pigs.

    It's definitely very interesting and worth a read through the whole series. Presumably what the OP is getting at is this, due to the horrible treatment of these animals.

    But on the up-side it's very friendly to my digestive tract. Chicken can clog me up, steak sometimes comes out a little loose, but a pound of bacon seems to digest optimally.

    The only valid response so far.
