I would have been highly skeptical had I not read other studies that said the same about cured meat products in particular. Bacon falls into the category of things I rarely cook. I usually eat it only for a treat when offered to me by someone (another household member) who fixes it, AND when I am hungry. Since he normally cooks bacon for his midnight snack and I never eat at midnight, I don't eat it often.
I am more likely to eat bacon than potato chips, but neither of us eat them anymore. Heath bars? Maybe a tie if someone were offering.
