American pig farmers produce the safest, highest quality and most affordable pork in the world. Bacon is one of our most beloved products and we are proud of the care taken by producers to deliver this iconic food favorite. The World Health Organization conclusions on processed and red meats are not based on evidence that proves causation and are therefore highly questionable. The National Pork Producers Council supports the USDA’s dietary guidelines, including the prescribed daily allowance of protein, and agrees with a balanced diet and consumption of any food in moderation.
