Bacon’s the Miracle Food That Makes Everything Better


Food Network gave Wired some real Snowden-type access to its Fieri-studded databases, and the magazine crunched a bunch of numbers related to the 906,539 user ratings attached to recipes. Not surprisingly, results revealed that “bacon lends the most improvement to sandwiches,” and moreover, any and all recipes involving bacon “do in fact rate higher.” Which is all great, at least until you find out buzzkill science journal Fertility and Sterility just published a study that suggests men who eat lots of bacon tend to have the most misshapen and hapless sperm.
