In case you missed it, yesterday was the Iowa Bacon Festival. Now, I don’t know about you, but when I first stumbled across this article, it took me about 5 minutes to come to grips with the fact that there is actually a festival entirely devoted to bacon (of all things). During this festival, attendees were presented with the opportunity to attend “Bacon Educational Lectures”, taste unlimited bacon samples from around the world, and meet members of the Iowa Bacon Board. More than 10,000 pounds of bacon were served and consumed at this one-day event, and the 8,000 available tickets sold out in a mere 3 minutes.

A follow-up study revealed more disturbing findings… “In a second study led by Bowman, researchers compared the genomic sequences of influenza A viruses recovered in July 2012 from pigs and people. The analysis, showing a greater than 99 percent genetic similarity among the viruses, confirms that pigs and humans were infected with the same virus, indicating interspecies transmission.” Our Creator gave us crystal clear instructions in […]
