Earlier, we reported about the World’s Health organization’s announcement that processed meat, like bacon, cause cancer. People around the world have shed silent tears today over the news. But perhaps we shouldn’t be so worried.
According to media reports, the world’s oldest person, 115-year-old Susannah Mushatt, credited her longevity to bacon, and said she eats four rashers, fried, every morning, followed by scrambled eggs.
She also credits her long life to the fact she was only married briefly and has never had any children.
