Bacon = Bad?

Which is better for you?  

A) Two strips of bacon
B) Half a bagel
C) A bowl of Rice Crispies 

Those who answered B or C are what we like to call WRONG.  Besides having fewer calories (bacon - 84, half bagel - 135, Rice Crispies - 126) bacon will not spike blood sugar.  Scientists at Harvard took another look at bacon and its potential for causing heart disease.  Their findings?  Zip.  Nothing.  After reviewing 21 studies they concluded bacon does not contribute to heart disease.  Heredity, hypertension, injury to the arteries, smoking and inflammation are the major culprits.
