With this weekend's 2nd Annual Bacon Fest staring us in the face, I decided to see if there were any other properties that bacon had besides just be delicious.

And I am glad I did because apparently bacon has medicinal properties too!  After much research, I found that the medicinal properties of bacon can be traced back to the 1940s and 1950s when bacon was used to help stop nosebleeds!  ABC News has a story that spells out how to use bacon to stop nosebleeds.  Now, I don't suffer from nosebleeds often, and when I do have one, I don't know that I would use this.

What I WOULD do is get to Baconfest and eat!!
