Bacon: Keeping mankind smart.

Can you dig it? The werewolf sure as hell can. This Daily Mail article, via Instapundit, suggests that eating bacon is good for gestating babies in their mama's womb. It makes them smarter. Nobody wants dumb babies.

What are vegetarians going to do?

Finally, there is some health news that makes sense to werewolf. If only bourbon could work itself into this equation.


  1. One of the foods richest in phosphatidylcholine — the major delivery form of choline — is soy. So, since this article suggests that it is the choline in bacon that is good for gestating babies, I would argue that vegetarians are well-positioned to have very intelligent babies :).

  2. Keep telling yourself that. If they baby doesn't get bacon, and isn't retarded from the denial of that bacon, there is a distinct possibility the child will be a total pansy, or perhaps even gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that, just saying there are adverse effects to the denial of bacon, that rattled the very foundations of vegetarianism.

  3. According to the article you posted, bacon is just one of many dietary sources of coline. So, these "adverse effects to the denial of bacon" that you suggest seem fabricated.

  4. Let's just say that intuition, observation, and generations of historical precedent compensate for the lack of statistical data at the moment.
