Billboard bashes bacon


Who doesn't like bacon, right?

Bacon wrapped scallops, bacontinies (bacon flavored martinis), fried bacon (at the fair) ... Google "bacon flavored" for yourself and see what comes up!

Well, there's a group in Iowa that claims bacon is as dangerous as smoking cigarettes.

Here's your Facebook Story of the Day.

The group has even put up billboards in Des Moines saying eating bacon can lead to rectal cancer.

This billboard is sponsored by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine based out of Washington D.C..

Iowa is the country's largest pork producing state, so this isn't sitting well with some farmers.

The billboard will be up for about a month.
