    not even grilled trout almondine with garlic mashed potatoes? not even baked halibut with black bean sauce?! how can you not like Peruvian octopus and shrimp stew?!?

    EDIT: talk about WORTH DYING FOR!

    but yeah raw fish is the bomb. perfect breakfast for me is spanish mackerel sashimi with guiness hard to find a sushi place open at 10AM though! lazy fuckers

    hmm had rainbow trout cooked once and liked it--i suppose i just don't like salt water fish cooked.

    greek octopus marinated in aged spices is soooo good. it's even better than fried calamari.

    Scottish drovers used to let blood from their cows and mix it with oats: I think that was the birth of black pudding on these shores.

    I just read about a recent medical study which hypothesised that the appendix was originally (and possibly still is): a kind of reservoir of intestinal flora that would help re-populate the large intestine, after a bout of dysentery or whatever had drained the gut not just of it's food/waste content but also its "friendly" bacteria etc.

    Huh, interesting.

    I just had a BBQ burger in Syracuse that was 1/2 of beef plus 4 pieces of bacon, cheddar cheese, and spicy bbq sauce.

    mmmm

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

    I think heavy intake of processed (including cured) meats is correlated with an increased risk of intestinal cancers, but 'heavy' means daily or nearly daily consumption.

    Studies confounded by uncontrolled factors - fatties wolfing down white bread, carbonated drinks and canola oil with their bacon-topped burgers.
    You know the drill: correlation ≠ causation
    There's a higher concentration of nitrites in saliva or salad leaves than cured meats.
    Then there's that rat study "A bacon-based diet appears to protect against carcinogenesis, perhaps because bacon contains 5% NaCl and increased the rats’ water intake."

    The case against delicious bacon is a load of unsmoked bollocks.
