Bacon is proof that I could never live a kosher lifestyle.
If you pay attention to some paleo bloggers then you've read that bacon is proof that God loves us, but bacon still gets a bad wrap in mainstream circles. My general take on bacon is that if the pork is raised properly, meaning, if it's fed a proper diet and without hormones or antibiotics, or screw up the meat with nitrates and other chemical additives/enhancers, and if you can manage to cook it properly (not burned to a crisp), you actually have a pretty good food!
A food that I consider somewhat healthy. The problem with bacon occurs when shortcuts are taken along this path. All in all, bacon may be as good as green vegetables, but, like the veggies, needs to be well cared for and raised properly.
