Pork Belly Shortage Drives Price Up Bacon Up

That is right, your favorite dietary killer is hear to save the day. When an unexpected nosebleed comes your way just shove a piece of that raw cured meat up your nose and watch the blood stop.

There is actually enthusiasm among doctors for the bacon as a nosebleed remedy. Previous to the backing of the idea of shoving a piece of bacon in your nose, it was still something doctors had heard of, but was more used as a joke than an actual recommendation.

We wouldn’t suggest this be the go to remedy. But say if pinching your nose and tilting it back doesn’t work, you might not throw that last piece in the frying pan and shove it up to stop the bleeding. But make sure not to bleed on the cooking bacon, we still want to eat that.
