Episode 19: Just Eat the Bacon (or don’t)

I’m sure by now, you’ve heard about the World Health Organization classification of meat, as particularly cured meats, as carcinogens. And that bacon, has essentially been classed in the same category as tobacco.

Well, crap.
Since this news is troubling to a lot of people who enjoy eating bacon, and don’t enjoy the idea of getting cancer, I thought I’d clarify some of the finer points. At the very least, you can have something to tell your vegan friends when they say you’re giving yourself cancer over brunch.
