You might have heard the big news lately: Bacon is now considered a carcinogenic to humans according to the World Health Organization. Look, we always knew bacon wasn’t health food. It should be enjoyed sparingly (which does make it even more desirable), like with all processed meats. We’ve got the next best thing to gorging on bacon, which is oogling bacon. So if you’re trying to cut back on the good stuff, just look at it instead. Here are some reasons why we love bacon. Enjoy!
