This is a photo of perfectly cooked bacon; bacon is an animal flesh best served burnt.
I have no idea the health effects of perfectly charred bacon relative to stringy, undercooked bacon or just crispy enough bacon. That’s probably not worth debating, anyway. It’s bacon, it’s staggeringly unhealthy regardless of preparation.
My determination that fully scorched bacon is superior is going purely by taste and how it makes me feel about eating it - terrifically happy.
