According to the Food Beast and researchers, bacon might not be as bad for us as we think. Researchers at ETH Zurich recently revealed that foods packed with niacin – Vitamin B3 – are linked to a longer life. As some of you may know, Niacin treats cholesterol issues. It can be found in paprika, sun-dried tomatoes, peanuts and BACON! A team of researchers fed a selection of roundworms a good dose of niacin and the introduction of this new element increased their lifespan by one-tenth longer, in comparison to their Vitamin B3-deficient worm friends.
Apparently, Niacin fools the body into thinking that it’s performing physical exercise, even if your not mobile. Not a bad food fact for the day.
