    Default can I get ill from eating too much bacon?

    I'm eating 7-8 rashers a day, every day, at the moment.

    Smokey bacon = certain death at that level of consumption.

    Otherwise you'll be fine until the heart attack or kidney failure gets you.

    how on earth did you get into the habit of eating 8 rashers of bacon a day?! is that in one sitting, or do you have 2 or 3 meals of bacon per day?

    my mother always used to cook about 10 slices of pancetta (not sure how that compares to northern european salted dead pig) before school when i were a littl'un and it never did me any harm, i was consistenly underweight too

    the worst thing about it might be the tapeworm eggs which can hatch in your eyes and make you go blind, or give you tapeworms, obviously, so be hygenic y'all

    For some reason I just barely know any recipes that don't involve bacon. For lunch I might have a brie and bacon sandwhich or a bacon and cream cheese bagel, then for supper I might have spaghetti carbonara or pasta with a tomato, mascarpone and bacon sauce. Obviously I could substitute other things for bacon in those recipes if necessary, I'm just trying to find out if I have to.

    Maybe it's too obvious to come right out and say it, but bacon is really high in saturated fats (bad for cholestrol) and dearest salt.

    I tend to think eating meat at every meal would be bad for you, but bacon is especially fatty.

    Still, based on your (tasty sounding) recipes above all the dairy might get you first...

    in the short term the carcenogens created by your stomach's inability to deal with all that cooked animal protean will give you lower energy levels, decreased ability to focus and concentrate, and probably a few unwanted pounds added to your physique.

    in the long term you are looking at high blood pressure, clogged veins, heart problems, or, even if pork tends to stay and rot in your lower intestines slightly less than beef (years and years), there is always the increasingly, wildly, popular choice: prostate/colon cancer.

    sorry to break it to ya. ain't nothin' you put in your body you don't pay for down the road. and the price just may be cancer of the butt.
