    Paul Jaminet of the Perfect Health Diet fame says this about the fatty acid profile of pork:

    The Trouble with Pork, Part 2 - Perfect Health Diet | Perfect Health Diet

    You decide for yourself.
    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

    That's not at ALL what is meant by "fatty acid profile."

    See my post above.

    I think it has got quite a bit of omega-6.

    Those images of pigs in cages in that Jaminet article *sob* - utterly heart-breaking. How can people treat the animals they raise like that? Even setting the health argument aside, the welfare of the animals is a good enough reason imho to not be overly reliant on industrially raised pork/bacon.

    It's truly horrifying! It's cruel for animals and produces toxic, unhealthy meat...
    My bacon looks like this :-)

    I buy from organic farm that is run by my friends, so I also get to visit it from time to time and see how happy their animals are!
