Oh just piss off, science.
We're sick of being told how bad everything is for us. We like bacon, we more than like bacon. WE "LIKE LIKE" Bacon, but science is trying its best to ruin our enjoyment of the delicious meat by saying it's just as likely to cause cancer as smoking.
And it's not just bacon, according to the World Health Organisation(WHO), sausages and burgers are just as bad. Basically any processed meat, and that's the best kind as far as we're concerned.
The findings came from discussions among some top scientists from ten nations, and the news may lead to warning signs being places on packets of bacon. It's seemingly so bad for us that the WHO will rank it in the worst health category, along with alcohol, asbestos, arsenic and cigarettes.
Look, we're still going to eat it, we'll probably smoke it. So deal with it science...we might just have some lettuce on the side though. Y'know, balance it out.
