    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?

    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...

    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.
