3. It's a great cure for hangovers and good for the brain.

4. Loaded with B(acon)-Vitamins.

According to an article posted to the website My Health Wire, bacon does not just contain high amounts of saturated fat and protein, but it is also packed with B-vitamins that help the body absorb and use fats and protein, as well as carbohydrates. Aside from that, it also helps the nervous and circulatory systems function properly.

5. Goes good with the Paleo Diet.

The diet is based on how people from the early times and civilizations gather, prepare and eat their food. Because of its essential role in the history of mankind, this type of diet is again being considered as working for the current society. As bacon goes with it seamlessly, it can also be considered good for our biological survival.

This is not to say we are OK eating just bacon. It is always important to keep in mind what goes inside our body and how it will affect our living. But contrary to that pesky feeling of guilt, you can actually enjoy bacon and all its good flavors, moderately.
