Bacon is so bad for you that you don't even need to eat it for it to cause health problems.

A man in Sweden wound up in the hospital this week after half a ton of bacon fell on him.

The victim was working in a warehouse when a trolley carrying the meat came tumbling down on him in an artery-clogging, cholesterol-raising avalanche.

A police spokesman said, "I don't know exactly how it happened, but somehow the trolley fell over. I've never heard of anything like this."

The man, who was knocked out, was taken to a hospital. Fortunately, he didn't sustain any serious injuries, unless you consider extreme greasiness to be serious.
