Fox Host: Study Linking Processed Meat To Cancer Part Of 'Conspiracy'

"Reduce our carbon hoofprint, as they say," Greg Gutfeld added.

If there was one thing clear on Fox News' "The Five" on Monday, it's that the hosts love their bacon.  

The panel was discussing a recent report released by the World Health Organization showing that processed meats, like bacon, can lead to cancer. The report ranked processed and cured meat on a top-tier list of carcinogenic substances that includes alcohol, cigarettes, asbestos and arsenic.

But to Fox host Dana Perino, the report is just another ploy from the enviro-crazies to stop you from running the AC with the car windows down or eating a Baconator five times a week.

"I think that there is a bigger conspiracy here anyway by the World Health Organization," Perino said. "Climate change. Global warming. This is all -- there's a big push against any sort of animal consumption."

"Reduce our carbon hoofprint, as they say," co-host Greg Gutfeld joked.

The panel highlighted the story of Susannah Mushatt Jones, the world's oldest woman, who says the secret to her 116-year-long life is eating bacon every morning.

Another host even went as far to say that if she were given the choice between not eating bacon and death, she'd choose death.
