https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/02/health/bacon-addictive-food-drayer/index.html

"Bacon is too perfect for words," said Gail Vance Civille, founder and president of Sensory Spectrum, a consulting firm that helps companies learn how sensory cues drive consumer perceptions of products. "I actually have a friend who is a vegetarian, and she eats only vegetarian food except for bacon. And the reason is because it tastes so good."

"Bacon is just that perfect combo of the sweet, the salty, the smoky and the savory character. Within savory, you've got the cured meat ... the roasted browned fat. ... It's just this perfect combination of ingredients that goes right to the brain, which says, 'take another bite,' "

Another element of bacon's irresistible appeal is its distinctive scent. "It just fills the home with this wonderful savory, smoky aroma. It just makes you feel good,"

"For most of us, I'd say bacon conjures up some very nice experiences as children ... with bacon being prepared for breakfast at home. And I think that carries over into our desire to enjoy it for the rest of our lives,"

"Use bacon as topping on your salad ... and to impart flavor in beans or your greens, like collard greens with bacon -- oh, YUM!"

Bacon is the perfect accompaniment food. You can have it complex carbs, cheeses, vegetables, fruits, seafood and even other meats.

Other foods should strive to be more like bacon.

its the perfect amount of salt and grease, with a hint of sugar since a lot of times they are infusing the bacon with something sweet.

Bacon is so addictive because it is pure, unadulterated bacon.

There's a reason bacon finds itself in seemingly incongruous places just like other more adult pleasures.

Hey, I think I speak for all of us when I say we don’t want to know or guess which incongruous places you put bacon for adult pleasure.

Sorry kik, that would take an inordinate amount of time and this is an allegedly "family friendly" site.

The FBI’s Hunt for Two Missing Piglets Reveals the Federal Cover-Up of Barbaric Factory Farms
Glenn Greenwald | October 5 2017
Quote:
FBI agents are devoting substantial resources to a multistate hunt for two baby piglets that the bureau believes are named Lucy and Ethel. The two piglets were removed over the summer from the Circle Four Farm in Utah by animal rights activists who had entered the Smithfield Foods-owned factory farm to film the brutal, torturous conditions in which the pigs are bred in order to be slaughtered.
[...]
This single Smithfield Foods farm breeds and then slaughters more than 1 million pigs each year. One of the odd aspects of animal mistreatment in the U.S. is that species regarded as more intelligent and emotionally complex — dogs, dolphins, cats, primates — generally receive more public concern and more legal protection. Yet pigs – among the planet’s most intelligent, social, and emotionally complicated species, capable of great joy, play, love, connection, suffering and pain, at least on a par with dogs — receive almost no protections, and are subject to savage systematic abuse by U.S. factory farms.
