    In the postwar area, people ate anything they could. Wasting any food was considered disgusting - organs, pork, EVERYTHING was eaten. And how is that a bad thing? Yeah, you shouldn‘t eat bacon all day, but if you slaughter animals to eat them, you should also eat the fat.
    And that we should eat less meat in general is no surprise, is it?

    We have been eating bacon literally since forever. There are cookbooks from the early 1800's describing how to smoke and cure it and it was one of the few food preparation practices that didn't have some sort of weird gender division stigma in Colonial America.
    Adam, I love ya but sometimes you are just full of crap.

    • xHalcyonx

      It likely has more to do with how it's prepared now, the additional processing, packaging, added preservatives for shipment. Plus many cheaper brands have 'smoke flavor' that isn't a result of smoking the meat, it's an artificial additive. If you found a local butcher and ordered a cut of pork belly, and made bacon from this meat, that would cut out a lot of the problem. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done for most, and good quality meat is often too expensive for people to fully switch.

    Seriously not the whole bacon cancer thing again. The group 1 known carcinogen doesn’t rank how carcinogenic it is but only the evidence for it being a carcinogen. Overall bacon doesn’t increase your chance of cancer much at all. Only colorectal cancer and only 18 percent not 20. So that increases your risk from 5% if you live in America to 5.9%. That’s nothing that’s less than 1% and remember that’s only one type of cancer. You’re deliberately trying to be misleading and should be ashamed.
    Eat too much of anything and it’s bad for you, you can make an argument against eating literally anything that way.

    20% increase is not what you think it is. If you don't eat processed meat your chance of getting colon cancer is 4% and if you do - it becomes 5% the increase in real terms is 1% (which is 20% of the 4%) I'm a bit disappointed by Adam on this :(

  • Ogre Under Bridge
    Ogre Under Bridge 10 days ago

    Alot of claims, no scientific arguments given what so ever.
    Except for cholesterol from the unfortunate salt bomb, there's little else in bacon but protein, saturated and unsaturated fats that your body actually severely needs both of for amongst others,
    maintaining a healthy brain and nervous system.
    The 80's and 90's saturated fats scare is utterly proven total bullshit. You do NOT become obese by eating fats.
    They're too hard to burn + they lubricate your guts causing faster passthrough, exempting food matters from being subject for thorough metabolism.
    A ketogenic based sustenance will actually CURE obesity, amongst other food related health problems.
    You will become obese by eating too much easy consumable carbohydrates like flour and sugar,
    because the body transforms them into fat and store it.
    Try a little more virtue in your future researches, if you do any at all.

  • omnizoom
    omnizoom 10 days ago

    If your on a Keto diet bacon isn’t bad for you , plus I always liked bacon and I don’t care much about adverts. Lastly the cancer part you brought is a big case of bad statistics , it is a 20% increase of a small small number of 5/1000 non processed meat eaters and 6/1000 processed meat eaters got that cancer it’s how you get that 20% increase the study states it’s not a 5% chance to develop the cancer to 25% otherwise we would see a 1 in 5 rate of that cancer alone
    I love the show but trying to hard to ruin something and using bad statistics isn’t a good move

    Bacon and hotdogs taste the way they do because they add the flavoring "liquid smoke" that's meant to make them taste like smoked meat. Knowing this and the fact that my brain is hard-wired to like and crave what bacon's made of goes a long way in me choosing not to eat it. Yeah, it tastes good. I like it when I eat it maybe once every year or two, but honestly, it's over-rated. When you're not addicted to it and actually think about what you're putting in the frying pan, bacon is objectively disgusting. Smoked kipper snacks (canned herring fillets) have a similar flavor and are a lot better for you. I pick them up when I'm craving that kind of thing.

  • Ike Zhang

    Ugh! Biased, agenda-driven misrepresentations are the worst! Hey Adam! Try to stick to accurately reporting on real issues, not scaremongering about a in increase from 4.49% risk to 5.30% risk (Oh No! a 20% increased risk! .... yeah, 5.30 is 18% higher than 4.49) Deliberately using misleading, biased, or incomplete information undermines the entire show, and erodes faith in every other episode. "Adam used scare tactics and misleading statistics when he talked about bacon. I wonder if he was being honest those other episodes."

  • cymond
    cymond 20 days ago

    If a local politician has 100 voters, and gains 20 voters, then he has gained 20%. That is NOT the same as 20 percentage POINTS. In a town of 1,000 voters, that politician has 100 voters, which is 10% of the total local vote. Gaining 20% means gaining 20% of WHAT HE HAD, not 20% of the total. Hence, gaining 20% = gaining 20 more over his 100 = 120. If he skyrocketed from 10% to 30%, then you could say that he gained 20 PERCENTAGE POINTS which is equal to a 200% increase in his supporters. As a different example, if the interest rates move from 4% to 5%, that's a 25 PERCENT increase or 1 PERCENTAGE POINT increase. Hence, a 20% increase in risk does NOT mean that your risk goes from (hypothetically) 1% to 21%, it means your risk went from 1% risk to 1.20% risk. In short, a 20% increase on something small is still very small.

    Stating that eating bacon increases your risk of cancer by 20% in this format is incredibly disingenuous. That makes it sound like "if you eat bacon you will have a 1/5 chance of getting cancer". This is not the case. What it actually means is "if you already had a 1% chance of getting cancer, your chances will increase by 20% of that 1%" which is a far less significant impact. But doesn't make for good scary headlines.
