    Subscribe to the Chicks! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If you want to be vegan, be vegan. I don’t care. I only care if you’re the type of vegan who constantly feels the need to judge me and lecture me for eating meat and wearing leather boots. If you’re in my face, I’ll dial the vegan jokes to 11. (Actually, I’m always in the mood for a good vegan joke. They’re funny!) Actually, one of my friends is a vegan, so see? It’s actually possible for a meat eater and a vegan to be friends. However,...

    Come get your bacon, hot out of the vending machine! The Ohio Pork Council announced they are launching their own Bacon Vending Machine. Yeah you read that right, a Bacon Vending Machine. The vending machine is located in the Animal Science Building at the Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, and will be available for students until December 13th. Inside you'll find bacon strips and bacon bits. The bacon was donated by Hormel, Sugardale, and Smithfield, and all the money made from the machine will go towards the meat science program.

    PHRASES like “bringing home the bacon” and “flogging a dead horse” could be CULLED to avoid offending animal lovers, an academic has claimed. Shareena Hamzah, from Swansea University, claimed the growing popularity of veganism could see people give meat-based metaphors the chop. It could mean historical sayings such as "taking a bull by the horns" or “putting all one’s eggs in one basket” become a thing of the past. Shareena Hamzah, of Swansea University, claimed the growing influence of veganism will raise awareness of animal cruelty and put an end to meaty descriptions.

    MSN / Reuters ^ | October 2, 2018
    PALU, Indonesia, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Indonesia is in a race against time to save victims of a devastating earthquake and tsunami on Sulawesi island, the government said on Tuesday, as the official death toll rose to more than 1,200 and looting fueled fears of lawlessness. Four days after the double disaster struck, officials feared the toll could soar, as most of the confirmed dead had come from Palu, a small city 1,500 km (930 miles) northeast of Jakarta. Some remote areas have been largely cut off after Friday's 7.5 magnitude quake triggered tsunami waves, destroying roads and bridges, and...

    Hold the bacon! If you are a fan of beef jerky, salami, hot dogs and other cured meats, you may be putting yourself at risk for manic episodes, according to a new study. Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have discovered an apparent link between consumption of nitrate-cured meats and hospitalization for mania, an elevated mood characterized by hyperactivity, euphoria and insomnia. Manic episodes, which are associated with bipolar disorder and schizoaffective disorder, may last for weeks or months and can lead to delusional thinking and risk-taking behavior. Researchers seeking to find what factors, other than genetics,...

    • McDonald’s has been serving McGriddles — breakfast sandwiches with two little pancakes for buns — for years, and now the chain is taking its sweet-and-savory morning item to a higher level. Mickey D’s has introduced the French toast McGriddle for a test run at some 200 locations in Minnesota. Not only does this dish innovate by tucking the fillings inside two slices of French toast, it brings bacon and sausage together on the same sandwich. • Speaking of McDonald’s, it seems the Golden Arches has decided its table service and self-ordering kiosks are the way of the future.

    Expect to see a dramatic increase in new technology coming into the pork industry as a host of manufacturers from diverse industries look at animal agriculture and attempt to measure or monitor welfare, environmental pressures and food safety with their technologies. That was the first message Lee Whittington, president and CEO of the Prairie Swine Centre had for delegates to the 2018 Banff Pork Seminar in Banff, Alta. The second is that what will be needed is a method to evaluate systematically how well the products work, the data integrity and security, and the link to decision support software and...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Processed meats like bacon and hot dogs are bad for your mental health, say researchers. According to researchers at Johns Hopkins, people who eat meats cured with nitrates are three times more likely to experience a manic episode. Apparently, added nitrates are associated with hyperactivity and insomnia. Researchers said experiments in rats showed mania-like hyperactivity after just a few weeks on diets with added nitrates.

    Pat Leahy grills Trump judicial nominee: Do you think gay marriage is like marrying bacon? AllahpunditPosted at 5:31 pm on November 15, 2017 This is so pitifully stupid. Either Democrats are desperate for attack lines against Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett, Trump’s nominee for the Fifth Circuit, or Leahy is so out of touch after 42 years in the Senate that he can’t recognize goofball humor when he sees it.

    No amount of alcohol, sausage or bacon is safe according to a new global blueprint on how to beat cancer. Even small amounts of processed meats and booze increase the risk of a host of cancers outlined in World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) guidelines updated every decade. The respected global authority has unveiled a 10-point plan to cut your risk of getting cancer by up to 40%. Brits have been told to banish favourites such as ham, burgers and hot dogs from their diets by experts who say they are a direct cause of bowel cancer. Processed meats also cause...

    A North Carolina jury awarded $50 million to neighbors of a 15,000-hog farm in Eastern North Carolina in a case being closely watched across the country by environmentalists and the hog farm industry. The verdict, revealed late Thursday after a jury deliberated less than two days, is the first to come in a series of federal lawsuits filed against Murphy-Brown/Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest pork producer. In this case decided in a federal courtroom in Raleigh, 10 neighbors contended that industrial-scale hog operations have known for decades that the open-air sewage pits on their properties were the source of noxious,...

    Researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer say that bacon acts as a bit of a double whammy in that it is both a red meat and a processed meat. In a question-and-answer session, a committee of scientists from The World Health Organization explained how exactly red and processed meats are carcinogens. “According to the most recent estimates by the Global Burden of Disease Project, an independent academic research organization, about 34,000 cancer deaths per year worldwide are attributable to diets high in processed meat,” scientists said, adding that “diets high in red meat could be responsible for...

    The words 'pork fat' and 'nutritious' don't quite go together, but that may soon change, given a surprising finding by scientists which was first published in 2015 but went viral only recently. According to a BBC report in January, researchers who analysed more than 1,000 raw foods found that lard is among the top 10 foods which provide the best balance of a person's daily nutritional requirements. Pork fat was ranked 8th in a list of 100 foods, with a nutritional score of 74 - the higher the number, the more likely it will meet your daily nutritional needs. It...
