It's easy to dismiss this gonzo gastronomy as typical American excess...Behind the proliferation of bacon offerings, however, is a confluence of government policy, factory farming, the boom in fast food and manipulation of consumer taste that has turned bacon into a weapon of mass destruction...While bacon's harmful effects were once limited to individual consumers, its production...has become an environmental disaster.
