    Vitamin B12. One important stuff missing. Which you only don't get from topsoil crops anymore because of modern processing methods. Hardly "a lot of important stuff".

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    I think bacon is good, but I could easily live without it.

    Do you know what vitamin B12 deficiency can do to you ?

    Guys, can we pretty lease keep this on topic to bacon and the restaurant in the OP?

    This isn't the place for piling on vegetarians just cos you know a guy who didn't get all his vitamins or whatever.

    I don't really like it, usually too salty and greasy.

    I'm pretty sure several franchises intentionally try to make the area surrounding their businesses smell like the product they sell. I can definitely smell a Burger King restaurant from a block or two away, unless it's a location inside a mall. I live about a hundred yards from a McDonalds and occasionally outside in my backyard I smell either French Fries or McNuggets. Would not surprise me the slightest is this was an intentional method those franchises use to advertise their products to those in the local area - and seeing as how so many people like bacon, I'd be willing to guess these guys hopped on that train of thought too.

    Yes they do, intentionally. And not just the major franchises like BK or McD. I live in an area with many locally owned, independent, restaurants, and you'll get a full bouquet of food smells if you walk that street.
    Why me? Why not.

    I like the taste of it in combination with other things but I can't eat just bacon alone on a plate. It's very heavy.

    To keep on topic - Bacon was good when I didn't know any better but now with a wealth of knowledge (i.e.: the internet) at my disposal, any health-conscious person would never eat bacon. Not pig bacon, turkey bacon, or fake bacon. It's all bad.

    I'm missing lots of Vitamin D too which is generally taken in from the sun.

    So obviously, whether I'm vegan, vegetarian, oco lacto vegetarian, pescetarian, fruitarian, or whatever diet it doesn't make a difference.

    I'm still 'missing important nutrients' which can simply be taken in supplement form as I said.

    Incorrect. If nature made us flesh eaters we would have snapping jaws (like cats dogs etc.) and not teeth for grinding (like horses or primates)

    I'll lay waiting, just waiting for my time to come.

    I think his point was that if nature wanted you to be vegan, nature would have made you able to synthesize your own b12. You can't. Bacteria in cow intestines can. So we eat cows (or oysters, or fish, or whatever).

    Also, I don't know why you say "any health-conscious would never eat bacon." Reasonable health-conscious people know that moderation is key, not strict limitations. Bacon all the time? Unhealthy. Bacon once or twice a month? Fine.

    Edit: And no, I'm not against vegans because this: the bacteria that makes b12 in cows is basically a supplement, so I see no difference.

    It's completely dependent on the individuals diet... If they have a high fat, high cholesterol diet then no, bacon should never be eaten unless they want to continue creating poor dieting habits.

    If you were to even on on a sole nutrient basis for bacon, then even more so, someone would never eat it.

    I suppose moderation for the average individual would be ideal. However, in today's modern world of consumerism, I'd wager to say that most people do not practice moderation in any aspect of their lives especially not food.

    Its decent, but I need it with something else to support it.

    Great for general things like inn a pie, or whatever^^

    Gonna have some bacon for dinner tommorow actually, gonna try do them inn the oven this time, cause last time that was really good ontop off a pizza, instead on the pan, where it can be abit hard to cook it right.

    Pretty much this. Yes, bacon is nice on my breakfast eggs and I like to mix it under my green beans with my steak. But seriously? The obsession I cannot understand. At the end of the day, pork is my least favorite meat..and it comes even after fish (no meat, I know)

    Nothing beats a steak...nothing...

    Right, that's a good point. My "moderation" point assumed you have an otherwise healthy diet, and occasionally go BACON NOM NOM NOM.
    Why me? Why not.

That's right not only do Chimps eat meat, they are cannibalistic. so def, vegetarians are not anywhere near the meanest or toughest.


    OT: Bacon is delicious! But you know who doesn't like bacon...the 11th Doctor. And that is just heart breaking

    I don't really like bacon but that is because I'm not a fan of red meat in general.

    I think bacon's ok, but it is highly overrated.

    I think the quality and source of the bacon is important, it's very different from country to country. One thing i've learnt is that bacon from the netherlands is nowhere enar as good as bacon in the UK!
