    Will bacon clog my arteries?

    Primal Fuel
    Title says it all.
    Used to eat the meat and not the fat but have been enjoying the fat too lately... should I stop?
    A few slices once a month shouldn't be terrible right?

    I've ate bacon almost every day for the past 8 months. My cholesterol numbers improved dramatically (checked last month) from the low-fat years.

    Anyone who claims to know everything about heart disease is lying but it does seem like the first domino in a clogged artery is endothelial trauma, which is more likely caused by inflammation stemming from refined oil, high blood glucose, seed allergen autoimmunity, or other primal bogeymen.

    Yes, I believe that taking bacon intravenously will most definitely clog your arteries. If just you're eating on rare occasion, not so much.

    a month? You're joking, right? My 4 year old and I can knock out an entire package at breakfast.
    Fat is delicious. Eat some!

    I'm as worried about bacon (and steak and liver and butter and eggs and all the rest) clogging my arteries as much as I'm worried about spinach doing so. Vegetable oils, refined carbs, excessive fructose and processed foods in general are the real dangers.

    Fun exercise:
    heat bacon fat to 98.6 degrees and try to clog anything with it
