    NOT!!! Follow the money... Lots of meat industry types getting scared.

    What is your opinion, now that facts are irrelevant?

    Bacon never left, and won't, even if I have to chase down those little piggies myself!! They're very tasty, once you catch them:)

    If you seriously believe that anyone in the meat industry is scared of anti-meat nutcases, then you're delusional.

    I eat very little to no processed meats.
    But....when I get a craving for bacon a few times a month I'm going to have some and don't concern myself with ever changing research results (as time goes on) or scare tactics by self-proclaiming researchers....some of which likely have their own agenda in this context.
    IE: I'm sure many of us recall the 'egg scare' many years ago.
    Moderation is key.

    Bacon is one of my favorite food groups. :)....I love bacon.

    Carry on....

    Off topic but if close to an IHOP. . . Best bacon I’ve ever had anywhere (crisp, thick, intense flavor). . . The Bacon Temptation Omlette is oh my. . . breathtaking

    Ok, back to the thread

    there is no IHOP in Antartica or 8 other continents, its a marketing scheme meant to put the National House of Pancakes out of business.
    clever marketing types happy to lie to make us happy....

    I've tried Beyond Beef and it was pretty bad. I can't wait to see what they do with Beyond Bacon.

    I'm not anti-meat... But at least 3 meat industry councils put big money into this new push... Like I say, follow the money...

    Yeah, IHOP omelettes are a big no for us. They put pancake batter in the eggs to make the omelette fluffy and more filling, with a bit of sweetness. Having gluten and carb issues, this is big no.

    Carry on...

    My real bias here is growing up with and knowing Harvard researcher Eric Rimm. I'm still sticking with his saying my one beer is fine and will still consume moderate amounts of stuff that might not be so good for me. Those don't add up to an otherwise good diet and physical activity.

    If you look into the recent news, what caught me is methodology. The GRADE method for drug studies used in the new news is not the same as observational studies typically done for public health issues.

    Sorry, but no comment or recent knowledge of IHOP. We mostly eat at home. My employer in the food business specializes in selling or making quality local food items. Few restaurants can top what you can do in your own kitchen.

    I'm assuming the OP is referencing recent news: A group of researchers published a series of studies in "the Annals of Internal Medicine". Their conclusions seem to support the idea that maybe eating red meat and processed meats is not as bad a thing as other research has suggested.

    It's about balance, though, innit? You want whiskey and bacon for breakfast every morning?

    Aside from allergies and such.

    I like bacon, big time. I love the smell, when it first starts to cook in the pan.

    It wouldn't be nearly as amazing and special if it were common, though. IMHO.

    Here's some wiki stuff about bacon and other cuts from Porky the Pig:
    Varieties differ depending on the primal cut from which they are prepared.[9][1] Different cuts of pork are used for making bacon depending on local preferences.

    Uncooked strips of side bacon
    • Side bacon, or streaky bacon, comes from the pork belly.[9][1] It has long alternating layers of fat and muscle running parallel to the rind.[9][12] This is the most common form of bacon in the United States.[9]
      • Pancetta is an Italian form of side bacon, sold smoked or unsmoked (aqua). It is generally rolled up into cylinders after curing, and is known for having a strong flavour.[9][1]
    Uncooked back bacon
    • Back bacon contains meat from the loin in the middle of the back of the pig.[9][13] It is a leaner cut, with less fat compared to side bacon.[1] Most bacon consumed in the United Kingdom and Ireland is back bacon.[9][14]
    • Collar bacon is taken from the back of a pig near the head.[9][15]
    • Cottage bacon is made from the lean meat from a boneless pork shoulder that is typically tied into an oval shape.[9]
    Sliced jowl bacon
    • Jowl bacon is cured and smoked cheeks of pork.[16] Guanciale is an Italian jowl bacon that is seasoned and dry cured but not smoked.
    The inclusion of skin with a cut of bacon, known as the 'bacon rind',[17] varies, though is less common in the English-speaking world.

    With that said, my go to spice is bacon.:D Always bacon.
