It depends on the cut. Bacon sold commercially in supermarkets has a fat content that varies from 10% to 20% on up to 80% to 90% or so. Anyone who has taken a minute or two to look through a number of packages can tell you that some may appear to be quite lean while many are well over 50% fat.. The…re are variations on the theme, and if shoppers want to pay for something like, say, center cut bacon, they will, in general, get a leaner product. The best idea is still to look through the packages and choose one that presents what you consider the best package there. Even meat markets will have bacon that varies in fat content with most of the butchers attempting to provide a "middle of the road" product with a bit lower ratio of fat to lean. (MORE)

They Could! Even If It Is From Another Pig. They Are Omnivores And Will Eat Just About ANYTHING. They Won't Even Realize. They Have Been Known To Kill And Eat Other Pigs That Have Been Injured. Chickens Can Do The Same! (And Yes, I Know Chickens Don't Have Teeth Just Like Other Birds.)
It depends on how the bacon has been cured. Check the nutrition label on the package.

Bacon is prepared from several different cuts of meat. In the United States, it is almost always prepared from pork belly. Elsewhere, it is more often made from side and back cuts, and bacon made from bellies is referred to as "streaky", "fatty", or "American style"
Nothing. Pigs can eat other dead pigs or chopped up pigs all the time (among other things), they won't know nor care.
Ermmm... Yes but they prefer vegetables. Bacon isnt exactly the greatest food for them. Many guinea pigs may not eat it. Plus in a way it just seems like canabalism...
eating one rasher of regular size is the same as eating 5 bags of m and m's or 2 bars of 500g caburys chocolate!
I cut all the fat away from my bacon or grill it until it drips off. Then it only leaves a few grams for taste
The press lays on the bacon slices and allows the meat to stay in contact with the hot pan. You don't get the bacon curling up at the ends or bubbling in the middle while it cooks so you end up with a straight, flat piece of cooked bacon when you're done. This way you don't have parts of the bacon m…ore cooked than any other part. (MORE)
Any variety of pig can be used as a source of meat to create bacon; generally the commercial pig is the primary source although wild boars, warthogs and potbelly pigs could also be used in theory.
Pigs don't actually make bacon on their own. People have to slotter (or kill) pigs to make bacon:(
Pigs cannot connect the flavor and texture (of smoked and salted pork) with their own bodies. Most birds will also eat cooked fowl, even if they would not ordinarily consume dead birds.
Only a little bit because if you eat to much a day it can clug your heart with all the greese and fat in it.
Some species of pigs are omnivores, and they would eat bacon and they would contract any diseases the bacon had when it was a pig!

Bacon? really? I think they make 35-45 a year if they have experience. If they do have a lot of experience and have close relations with the big bosses, they make a lot more and often own HUGE extravagant homes too. Nothing like a nice drug bust going down now is there?
bacon has a lot of salt in it, so don't eat too much of it. i would make it more of a treat than a regular thing. also, don't eat the fat on the bacon because that's even worse.
Yes, but they are exotic and therefore are expensive to buy. You can adopt one for free, but there is a $5000 dollar air and re homing fee.
Well, pork is a general term that encompasses the meat from a pig. Bacon and ham are just names for different parts of the pig that gives these types of meat.

Turkey bacon can have a lot of sodium in it's recipe. The exactamount depends on the exact brand purchased.
It depends on where you get it. I got it for $25 at Pet World, but i also found $15 at petsmart, and not sure at petco. But i live in Colorado, so you might have different prices. It usally ranges between $10 to $50 or $60. You sould find the best pig, though, not the best price.
It depends on how mutch you eat. If you eat only one peice it is 50% fat!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, bacon is made from pork bellies - the muscle layers of the abdominal wall. After slaughter and chilling the carcass, the belly is removed, squared, injected/spiced, smoked/flavored and then sliced.

Bacon is not alive. Bacon is made of pig meat. Therefore, the pig is dead as well as the 'Bacon'. Unless of course. You cut off a slice of meat from the pig while it is alive. The pig would still be considered alive then (if its organs are still intact and working) You should know that bacon is v…ery essential to life. without bacon, there will be no breakfast, lunch, or dinner. A team of incredibly smart scientists have now discovered that bacon creates happiness for all (except for muslims and people who do not like the slaughter of animals or the taste of pork). (MORE)
A bacon double cheese.............?? Burger? It depends from where you buy it. Normally a few dollars.
Bacon is salty. Salty foods makes our whole body a little salty, which it doesn't like. So the body tells us to drink more water, to dilute the salt and get us back to normal again.
Generically the meet form a pig is called "pork", as in pork chops or a pork roast. However, by convention if the meet is cured (salted) it is then called "bacon", "ham", "gammon" etc.

Let's say that you want to have a really large-screen TV but can'tafford one, or don't have the space for one. You can use a videoprojector to create a large TV image on any blank wall.
