Thank You For Your Bacon Report, Stephen Colbert.

On March 12, 2012, Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report) reported on the cure for nosebleeds by using bacon. The man is hilarious!

I already posted something on this (Nasal Tampon of Bacon Stops Nosebleeds!) back in January, but I rather enjoyed the comical side a bit more!

Thank you, @sioron on Twitter for posting the link to a very educating poster on Medical Billing School (posted by Katie).

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.
