Bacon is like Jane's Addiction's music, it's in a category all by itself.

The meat part of bacon is red. The fat part is white. Therefore bacon is red meat, just like all the other red meats that sometimes have fatty white streaks through them.

You could apply those same standards to uncooked chicken (which is pinkish red in appearance IMO) and come up with an incorrect conclusion.

Raw chicken thigh is pinkish, but cooked it is pale tan. I eat it cooked. Ergo, not a red meat.

Afraid to eat it raw? Are you chicken?

Pardon me for being not-dis-unclear.

Perhaps what I meant to say is: Living is the #1 risk factor for dying. After all, 100% of dead people were alive right up to the moment before death!
