This is weird and perhaps welcoming news for some. Cured salt pork such as bacon is a cure for nosebleed.
The bad news is that to fix nosebleed one is not required to eat bacon. Simply stuffing a piece of bacon up the bloody nostril will fix it. Raw "cured salt pork" is an effective nasal tampon. It works especially well for treating certain conditions that lead to chronic nosebleeds.
This method was long considered a folk remedy, with medical professionals only intermittently recommending it. Stuffing bacon up your nose might not replace pinching it and tilting your head back as a first line of defense against bloody noses. But if that doesn't work, and you realize you have some extra bacon lying around, the bacon method might be worth trying out the next time you have a nosebleed.
Note that cured salt pork is required. Not all bacon may be salt cured pork.
