Why have I never seen uncured unprocessed un chemicals bacon in a store?

It's normally sold as pork belly.
Once you cure and smoke it, it becomes what most people know as bacon.
You can buy the pork belly, cure it, smoke it and make bacon with fewer chemicals and preservatives than the mass processed stuff. I do it. It's well worth the effort.

I don't understand why people take something cute, like a pig, and turn it into something gross like bacon.

Because it would'nt be bacon if it was'nt 'cured'.
It would just be 'pork'.

because the term "bacon" means any meat that is processed, cured, spiced, smoked, dried, etc.... if you dont want this, just get thin slices of real pure meat... You could however invest in a dehydrator.. or use your oven and make your own meats at home with pure spices...

Because it wouldn't be bacon.

Because it doesn't exist.
Bacon is a preserved, cured meat. All bacon is processed by it's very nature. Pig meat doesn't look like that when you cut it off of them.

That would be called "ham". Bacon is cured ham.
