Prosciutto and bacon ok?

I see it used in several recipes as well as bacon. Yet in your food guide it says to avoid bacon and ham-? Can you explain?

I assure you they are not as detrimental as Omega 3. There are papers on the optimal diet for prosciutto pigs, and they state that corn and soybeans produce the most standardized products. I can also see differences between my pastured pork fat and that in commercial cured meats.

Actually omega-6 oils are detrimental towards the dry-curing process (they go rancid).

No bacon? That's madness! Where did you hear such lies.

There is no one paleo food guide...especially not one that says no bacon -- that's just wrong!

What food guide were you looking at? Could you provide the link? As far as I know, bacon and proscuitto are okay. I have several Paleo cookbooks that use them as ingredients :)

Industrial processed meat will have antibiotics, hormones, and lots of pesticides, no vitamin D, and little A and K2. On top of that, prosciutto has to be raised with corn and soybeans because the very high O6 content helps stabilize it during dry aging. Use bacon from pastured pork, and wild boar prosciutto or ham.

Some people consider bacon a processed meat and avoid it.

Some people try to suck all the joy out of the lives of others to make their own pathetic existences seems more bearable in comparison.
