Bacon And Eggs, Breakfast Of Choice For Pregnancy

Bacon And Eggs, Breakfast Of Choice For Pregnancy

If you’re pregnant and have a hankering for bacon and eggs, you’ve got good nutritional evidence to back up your culinary desires. Research into fetal development shows that the fetal brain needs relatively large amounts of choline for proper growth. Both bacon and eggs are rich in this nutrient which is also found in other meats.

“We may never be able to call bacon a health food with a straight face, but the emerging field of epigenetics is already making us rethink those things that we consider healthful and unhealthful,” says Gerald Weissmann, MD, Editor-in-Chief of the FASEB Journal where the latest study was published. “This is yet another example showing that good prenatal nutrition is vitally important throughout a child’s entire lifetime.”

Epigenetics, the study of how genes behave, shows that an expectant mother’s nutrition influences the behavior of fetal cells. In this study, the choline in bacon and eggs helped fetal brain cells develop regions associated with memory. Nuts are also a good source of choline.

      Very good point FF. Most people nowadays don’t think of that at all. There is so much genetic manipulation being carried out behind the scenes no telling what’s in the majority of bacon and eggs that we normally consume. I haven’t the slightest idea, technically, as to what is being added or what has been added previously to the feeds for chickens, pigs, cattle etc. But with the way various aspects of these type of things are being played with no telling what we’re up against. Probably much more than what we can even think of.


      Ditto.You are right.

      No, no, no, no, NO!

      “Certified Organic” guarantees it was made by “Big Agriculture”. No small, truly organic farmer can AFFORD to be organic certified.

      Buy LOCAL. Direct from the farm if you can. Do NOT fall into the Big-Ag trap!

        That is not true at all. My family is certified organic and we come from a little farm. Not all certified organic are BIG producers.

    Well, I’ve never been pregnant but accepted years ago that the “body” thinks faster then you do and knows what it needs and what it want on levels that are uncanny.

    All the senses come to bare and make decisions for you, without you being aware that it’s happening.

    and as far a bacon, it’s so good I worry for pig! I’m amazed that there is any left!

    A little geese in your diet is a good thing. You need it.

    This “body sense” comes in play with mating as well.

    A woman, can and will reject a man over smell. Her body is telling her that you don’t carry what she needs to make a healthy baby. She don’t hate you, she simply don’t want you.

    So don’t take rejecting personal, it’s for couples to find that special mate that has what they need.

    All the trapping, money, cars, houses won’t change this, while it might persuade anyone to make a bad decision. We see it all the time, or sometime is simply the lure of convenience. ‘it’s not love but it’s not bad”

    If she is “into you” and you are “into her” , there is a reason for it and you are not really insane, you are just smitten and filling up on what you need and a healthy child might come of it.

    My wife had this thing for Lime Sherbet ice cream, at the strangest of hours ~ and of course it was my duty to race out and “kill” some to bring home.

    Life has been a HooT!

    Just think of bacon and eggs as a refutation of the AMA’s nutritional hypocrisy. It’s also a jab at the pro death crowd.
    That is, if you’re part of the pro death’s ‘better living through abortions’ mantra, you don’t have to be concerned about a baby’s prenatal heath.
    The idea that quality bacon and quality eggs can compensate for the garbage science that Uncle Scam loves to indoctrinate us with [via the AMA, FDA and Big Pharma cabal] is WAY beyond hilarious, people.
    For those who will have to to endure the stuffed-shirt paranoia of an MD who loves to parrot the crap he or she learned in medical school, tell that useful idiot that if he or she believes that a low-fat diet will ‘help,’ remind the twit that Alzheimer’s requires a low-fat approach to “scientific living.”
