Bacon Stops 4 Year Old's Nosebleed

Email print Comments 0

Share291

Could cramming a piece of bacon up your nose stop an uncontrollable nosebleed? Some doctors in Michigan say yes. They say the fatty pork helped save the life of a four year old girl whose nose would not stop bleeding. The child was diagnosed with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia, a rare genetic platelet disorder, and doctors were able to stop her nose bleed twice with bacon.

They recommend raw bacon. One of doctors recalled the recommendation he had head in a surgical field manual while in the military -- use pork to stop bleeding.

No, they’ll just strap a bomb on him so he can die as a ‘martyr’

Still, I don’t think anyone would want to eat it once it’s stuffed up someone’s bloody nose.

Bacon bandaids are available. IIRC they also offer a bacon wallet.

Think I’ll use some bearing grease or super glue to stop the bleeding.

Well, it could also be used to subdue Talibunnies in Afghanistan.

Actually a wet tea bag stops bleeding. Press it on the wound and it works fast. Stings like heck though.

Watch out for bacon-snort overdoses, though. You could end up looking like Henry Waxman.

I suspect that a Jewish person would not object to bacon being used as a compress to stop bleeding, as long as he didn’t have to eat it. But, a Muslim would. Moreover, I might object to having raw bacon shoved up my nose, even though I have noreservations about eating it cooked. ;^)

However, you make a good point. LOL.

For best results, the bacon has to be at 6 degrees.

Arrowroot can stop it as well. Well, maybe not in the nose but on other parts.

Pepper also stops bleeding, but obviously not good in the case of a nosebleed.

Bacon, Twinkies, and Chocolate {real} ice cream.

In life, it's all about QUALITY over quantity!

That will probably be on my tombstone!
