Possibly Bogus Study Says Bacon Could Be Good For Health

Let's be real. Who doesn't love bacon. It's freaking fantastic and tasty. No one in their right mind would say no to bacon. Then you remember that your heart and bacon might not be the best of friends in the long run. A new study by Michael Ristow sounds a bit weird to us saying that bacon is good for you.
We would love to believe this, but we apologize for being skeptical.
The study indicates that bacon contains niacin, aka Vitamin B3, and that it lowers cholesterol and is used to lower the risk of heart attack and coronary disease. The study used roundworms and the diet caused them to live 10% longer than the controlled subjects.
So until they test this on humans, our advice is to go slow with bacon (even though it's incredibly tasty.)
Trees are great for the environment, but they can also be problematic for people living close to them. Trees can sometimes cause damage to the properties around them, thus causing them to be cut down. Given that trees are expensive to cut down, one of the most common questions people ask is, "Can I get a tree cut down for free?". Although it is possible to find someone who may be willing to cut down a tree for free, most people do it in exchange for the wood. Find local lumber mills or hardwood dealers and ask them to cut down the tree. If the tree is blocking a government property like an electric line, you may also contact the responsible institution, such as the power company and have them take it down for free. Read more
