 Who knew that when, in a terrible moment of weakness, you drank all of the grease that had dripped off of your George Foreman grill . . . you were actually being HEALTHY?

The BBC just enlisted a group of scientists to rank the 100 healthiest foods in the world, based on all of the nutrients they contain.  And number eight is pork fat.  They say it's a good source of B vitamins and minerals.  Who knew?

Anyway, the top 10 healthiest foods are:  Almonds . . . cherimoya fruit . . . ocean perch fish . . . flatfish . . . chia seeds . . . pumpkin seeds . . . Swiss chard . . . pork fat . . . beet greens . . . and snapper.

And some of the more popular foods that finished outside the top 10 are:  Tangerines at 14th . . . peas 15th . . . chili powder 25th . . . kale 31st . . . cherries 47th . . . oranges 82nd . . . carrots 88th . . . and sweet potatoes 100th.
