Now you know why I was a vegetarian once upon a time. Pork is ok, except for the fatty bits, I find it pretty bland. Bacon is more is a mascot than anything, I doubt most of us eat tons of it on a regular basis.

Another pork free Primal here. Not because they are too cute to kill (although that pic is adorable, yogabear), but because I buy the O3/O6 ratio argument. I don't eat pork or poultry.
To the OP and anyone else who can't imagine life without bacon. Did you know that US Wellness Meats sells sugar free BEEF bacon?
Another pork avoider here. Pretty much for all the same reasons.
I eat bacon occasionally, and sometimes I'l get a pack of maple sage ground pork from my farmer, or have some ham at Easter, but outside of that piggy doesn't really 'do' it for me.
i avoid all pork other than wild pork and i have shot wild pigs myself. with a high powered rifle and from a distance. the guys use dogs and knives and i try not to look. i wont eat domestic pork unless it is served to me and i am being polite. altho occasionally i will make pork broth out of free range pork bones or make boil ups with them. i am maybe a rarity in that i dont get the big thing about bacon. i need to have it hidden in something to be ok. i also have some jewish blood so i hide behind that rather than lecture people about the animal rights issues and 03/06 thing. i dont do domestic chicken either other than for the above social reasons.
I'm VLP (very low pork) for similar reasons to Paleobird. The little bit of pork I do eat comes from delicious, happy pigs running around rooting for tubers. And the uncured bacon of it can practically stand up on end even when it's been out of the fridge, which I'm told is an indicator that the sat fat content is high and pufa content low (at least compared to soggy, wimpy bacon).
