If you are following the markets and the news, you know that with the shortage of grain crops, which plump up our animals, feed prices are on the rise as is the frenzy over the possible decrease in bacon on home tables.
From Twitter to world news (a Twitter headline reads ‘Unavoidable’ Bacon Shortage Leads to Twitter Hysteria), folks are freaking out. In a recent press release, the U.K.’s National Pig Association is warning that a “world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable.”
Many studies report that bacon increases heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, stroke, cancer and a host of other unpleasant illnesses. Rather than mourn this potential loss (mourning the economy is fine), let this be an opportunity to expand your diet and save your life.
