Dr. Oz: Bring On The Bacon ... Just Not A Lot Of It

EXCLUSIVE

Finally, a voice of reason for meat lovers -- Dr. Oz is NOT pushing the panic button when it comes to bacon and red meat, despite the recent WHO report connecting them to cancer. 

Oz says the World Health Org. is actually late to the party because meats have long been considered carcinogens. More importantly, he explained why there's no need to slash processed meats like bacon completely out of your diet.

He does have a warning for BBQ fans though, and some recipe tips for Harvey. Sorry, doc ... our boss doesn't touch the stuff. 

Bottom line: Sorry, piggies. You're still delicious.
