Bacon Stops 4 Year Old’s Nosebleed
Could cramming a piece of bacon up your nose stop an uncontrollable nosebleed? Some doctors in Michigan say yes. They say the fatty pork helped save the life of a four year old girl whose nose would not stop bleeding. The child was diagnosed with Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia, a rare genetic platelet disorder, and doctors were able to stop her nose bleed twice with bacon.
They recommend raw bacon. One of doctors recalled the recommendation he had head in a surgical field manual while in the military — use pork to stop bleeding.
