Bacon: Weapon of Mass Destruction?

Here's breakfast reading for you: "Bacon as a Weapon of Mass Destruction"? Left-wing journalist Arun Gupta unspooled that theory on the taxpayer-subsidized Pacifica Radio network. McDonald's is apparently making us bacon addicts:

McDonald’s pumps this with all sorts of umami. This is something I’ve been looking at. A lot of our foods are pumped with all sorts of umami, everything from savory foods to ice cream, because it elicits an actual neurochemical, physiological response.

Naturally, abortion apostle Bonnie Erbe at U.S. News also jumped on the anti-bacon bandwagon:

Humans won't listen. But I have a saying: Animals bite back. You eat them, they kill you. The more we learn about nutrition and factory farming, the truer this becomes.
