So if you don’t eat bacon ever, you can’t get the kinds of cancer that bacon causes, like colorectal cancer (gross!). Every fatty, salty bite you take beyond that carries some danger, though not in an immediate, watch-out-for-that-bus sense.
Bacon is, undoubtedly, one of life’s great delights. Like most pleasures, it has some downside, but ultimately it’s up to you to decide whether it’s worth it. Aizen’s final piece of advice might be the best: “Bacon daily is not a good idea, but once in a blue [moon] is OK… stick to greens.”
