    no...he wont die. however, there is a worm/parasite that lives on pork and so it needs to be cooked properly - otherwise you will eat it and it will continue to live inside of your friend. i promise - thats true!

    He probably won't die but, the amount of fat on raw bacon will not do good things for his health. Trichonosis is not as common as it was in the past. Freezing will also kill it. If the bacon sits at room temperature for an extended amount of time, there are other bacteria which can cause illnesses.

    Nothing wrong with eating raw bacon.

    To be classed as bacon the meat has been cured, and if the bacons smoked then it's all-ready cooked.

    Welcome to Trichinosis! There's a parasite that lives in raw pork...bacon is pork! Thoroughly cooking the meat to the correct temperature will kill the parasite!

    Just as a note, this particular parasite can grow to length of 6 feet and can emerge from an body opening large enough to accommodate it. Not pretty on a first date!

    no, he won´t. Bacon is smoked pork, so any worms will also be smoked, if there are any. People eat parma ham with their melon, and that is, in effect, the same as bacon, only a bit drier.

    No he will not die. The curing process will preserve the food, and if it is smoked, it will be cooked.
