You probably already know that bacon is one of the better things that life has to offer, but did you know that it can also heal? A new study published on KevinMD shows that there are 3 medical conditions that bacon is known to help alleviate.
While for most people, nosebleeds are just awkward and embarrassing, to those who have platelet disorders like Glanzmann thrombasthenia, a never-ending nosebleed can be deadly. Its been found that shoving bacon up your nostrils causes your blood vessels to swell up, and the nose bleed instantly stops. Its even been shown to cure platelet disorders entirely!
- Dermatobia hominis
You don't want to know what this one is, but I'm going to tell you anyway. It's a parasite that causes boils and skin deterioration. The only way to deal with it is to pull the larvae out with tweezers (gross). The only way to get them close enough to the skin to do this is by coaxing them up with bacon. Even gross parasitic skin monsters know how awesome bacon is.
- Body lice
Rubbing bacon fat on your body has proven to be a highly effective and cost-efficient way of dealing with this unpleasant problem.
