Bacon: Key to longevity?

Gertrudebaineskenhively 

Forget an apple a day. The world's oldest person loves her bacon . . . and she wants it crispy.  According to today's Huffington Post, Gertrude Baines, who turned 115 this past Monday, "owes her longevity to the Lord, that she never did drink, she never did smoke and she never did fool around." Oh, and she likes crispy bacon.

Well if it's good enough for Gertrude Baines, it's good enough for me.  This comes in as No. 30 on my list of 1,001 Things to Do With Bacon. For the rest of the list, follow the jump.

Mouth-watering, but what do we do about the sulfates, the sulphides, the phosphates, and the nitrates?
