Nasal Tampon of Bacon Stops Nosebleeds!

No, really. The Annals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology has an article discussing how “Cured salted pork crafted as a nasal tampon and packed within the nasal vaults successfully stopped nasal hemorrhage promptly, effectively, and without sequelae.”

This artcle I discovered this through is on Care2.com, check it out: “Bacon Cures Nosebleeds…Of Course it Does!”

Detroit News.com also had a great write up: “Got bacon?…”

If you are interested in purchasing the artcle from Annals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology or even simply reading the brief abstract, check it out: AORL.
