Bacon a New Brain Food?

I've been reading articles about bacon being a possible brain food for developing fetuses helping to grow the regions of the brain associated with memory. Bacon as well as pork, and eggs are rich in choline which look to create new brain cells. In the studies that have been done pregnant mice were given different diets during the time that the fetus develops it hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory. Those that did not have the choline had marks on the proteins that wrap the genes responsible for creating new brain cells. I wouldn't say that we can call bacon healthy, but it may be helpful in this arena.
