Scientists discover bacon-flavored seaweed

Many people agree bacon is delicious.

But many doctors agree, it's bad for you.

Well, some researchers may have finally found a naturally delicious and healthy replacement from the sea.

Scientists are cultivating kind of red seaweed called Dulse which they say naturally tastes like bacon when cooked. But it's packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and protein.

This seaweed grows along the northern and pacific coastlines.

The problem is, it's still very expensive-- costing up to $90 a pound.

 So the researchers are now trying to figure out how to make growing it more affordable.
