Hey Rich, yeah absolutely whenever possible I buy local & pastured meats. Pork is definitely harder to find than poultry, beef, veal, bison etc. so I'm happy to (maybe) have found a good source. (Pastured is one thing but local AND pastured? Not easy!)

High sodium and potassium leads to high blood pressure as well I can't eat peanut butter, chocolate , cheese, tomatoes, tomato sauce, caramel, just to name a few (all of the yummy foods) plus a dialysis patient has their blood cleaned between 3-4 hours a day 3 times a week for the rest of your life or until you get a kidney transplant it is very serious I know because I live this life and I want to spread the word and help as many people as I can please try to eat low salt your life will be so much better
BUT people eliminating junk food are on a low salt diet. They aren't eating hidden salts so a little salt here and there isn't going to hurt a healthy person on a healthy diet.

I also love bacon, but seem to be salt sensitive.....I feel bloated as all hell when I too much salt. But I love salty foods
A big part of what makes bacon bacon is the salt. Its like wanting low salt ham....salt free ham is pork
They do sell lower sodium versions if you can find them, Applegate makes some. But it is still high with 2 slices at 8% of RDA.
Soaking the bacon in cold water in the fridge for an hour or two...preferably changing the water a couple times...will pull salt out of the bacon as well.
Whatever you do abseven7, don't ever eat turkey bacon.
If you do, we have to put you in shackles in the town square for a week on display for others to see.
You don't have bacon without salt so simply purchase pork belly and bake until crisp then slice thin.
Grow beard, carry water.
I saw an article a while back about American's sodium intake which had a sensationalist title saying that people need to stop eating bacon or they'll die. Hidden in the middle of the article was a ranking of foods people get most of their sodium from. Number two on the list was "processed meats including bacon". Number one by a HUGE margin was bread. Their conclusion was not to eat bacon.
