I am going to start hoarding and raising my own.

Also, I am building a bunker and arming myself against the oncoming hoards of bacon-starved scavengers.

From the article:
And in the United States? "Skyrocket" is overdoing the price impact.

“The headlines say ‘shortage,’ and that isn’t going to be the case,” says Steve Meyer, a consulting economist for the National Pork Board and the National Pork Producers Council, as well as the president of Paragon Economics in Adel, Iowa. “We aren’t going to see bacon lines. You’ll still be able to get it.”

Still, retail prices will rise next year and are expected to set new records. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) forecasts a rise of 2.5 to 3.5 percent, after an 8.5 percent rise in 2010 and a 1.0 to 2.0 percent rise this year.

AND NOT WITH ICE CREAM! The Burger Kings around me don't even have that.

Apparently bacon is carcinogenic. Pigs are my favourite animal along with dogs. I would have pet pigs if I didn't live in London! They are exceptionally intelligent and loving. And they are so close to humans that insulin for diabetics derived from pigs.

If you ever met a pig or cuddled one, just once, you would never eat one. And I'm sure many on here have cuddled a lot worse than a pig!

Many other groups don't eat the swine. Muslims, some Christian denominations, Rastafarians, plus others who think it's unhealthy.


Such restrictions exist in Jewish dietary laws (Kashrut), in Christian dietary laws, and in Muslim dietary laws (Halal). It originates first from the laws of the Hebrew Bible, and later reinforced for the Muslims in the Quran.[citation needed]

Also among Christians, Seventh-day Adventists consider pork taboo, along with other foods forbidden by Jewish law. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church also discourages pork consumption.

I think it's the sodium nitrite that gets added to bacon that's a carcinogen. Uncured bacon is better anyway. :cheer:

I tell the hubby all the time, Bacon is the best tasting meat EVER! He doesn't know what he's missing. Lamb tastes like.....eh pretty much nothing. Beef is good but it's no bacon. Chicken and fish is awwwlright but still not bacon..

This makes me sad because now when I go to IHOP they are going to charge an arm and a leg for a side of bacon. I don't eat it anywhere else because it either comes pre-cooked (too many preservatives) or they don't cook it hard enough for me. I love bacon but it bests be cooked completely no pink for me.
