Pickle lovers, rejoice.
Pickles are now better than bacon, according to a new study that found they’re about 30 percent less likely to kill people.
The study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, looked at data from a national sample of 1,000 Americans over a four-year period.
Researchers found that pickles are 50 percent less toxic than bacon and 85 percent less dangerous to the body than other types of bacon.
This means that the two foods are about equally safe for most people.
The study also found that eating pickles, on average, is equivalent to eating five portions of pork rinds, while eating bacon is equivalent for a person who eats one hamburger and one slice of cheese.
