Our expert says:
Bacon is indeed cured or smoked meat depending on which type you eat. The recommendation is that we should not eat large amounts of cured (i.e. foods treated with nitrates and nitrites) or smoked meats to prevent certain types of cancer. If you eat bacon once a week as part of a varied diet then this should not be a problem.
