Why Bacon’s Good For You and the Environment

This might come as a surprise to you, but bacon isn’t one of my favorite foods. Sure, I might write about it frequently, but I do so, not because I have an insatiable love for crispy bacon. No, the real reasons I write about bacon so much are twofold: the first reason is only because I know most of you, my readers, love bacon. The other reason is I’m trying to dispel the idea that certain foods are categorically “bad” and “good”.

Which Fish Never to Eat

You’re Going To Be Shocked When You Learn Which Fish Never To Eat That’s because you’ve been told over and over again that fish is healthy, and should be a substantial part of your diet. Well, just because you hear something day in and day out doesn’t make every bit of that saying true. Have you ever heard the expression, “Even a broken clock is right twice a day?” Well, that one’s actually true…assuming you don’t get the clock fixed during the middle of the day. But I digress. The reality is, there’s always going to be an opinion that adds dispute to an idea that’s generally accepted as true. And, just because fish is generally regarded as healthy, that doesn’t mean that all...
