VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — You might be forgiven if you’ve confused today’s National Bacon Day with International Bacon Day, that took place in August, but the pork industry is hoping you won’t mind the redundancy.Quebec pork producer duBreton even released a survey conducted among bacon-loving Canadians which highlights the irrational obsession some people have for the cured delicacy.They say 98 per cent of those surveyed identify bacon among their favourite foods and eight per cent confess to liking bacon more than their spouse. In Ontario, that number jumps to a greasy 47 per cent.Take those claims with a grain of salt, warns Dalhousie University food researcher Sylvain Charlebois.“Most of the time these campaigns are used to promote a product that may need some attention and bacon is certainly one of them,” he says.Charlebois thinks many people have abandoned bacon because of the health risks associated with high sodium and fat as well as a dire warning from the World Health Organization which says eating processed meats is as dangerous as smoking.Cutting back may be good for our arteries, but there could be some fallout for the economy. Canadian producers grow between 15 to 17 million hogs each year, many of them destined for export says Charlebois.“Whatever happens to bacon means a lot to a very significant economic sector of ours,” he says.The bigger picture though is the impact pork products, especially bacon, has on the environment.It takes a lot of water, food and energy to grow a pig and the smoking process involved with creating your favourite breakfast companion means there’s an extra layer to the impact bacon has on the planet.“For someone who’s looking at making choices around food that could reduce the carbon footprint of the food you eat, bacon probably wouldn’t be a good choice,” says Charlebois.
