Lots of good info here, so I'll just comment on the bacon. There's no need to cook bacon in oil. Put bacon in a cold pan and turn the heat to medium. As the pan warms up, the fat in the bacon begins render and provides plenty of fat for cooking it.

If you're cooking a large quantity of bacon, preheat the oven to 375F, line a sheet pan with foil, place the bacon on the pan and bake for about 15 minutes. Nice and easy, hands-off crispy bacon.

I think it's going to depend on a number of factors as to whether it has value, and it's clear that it may have more or less effect, depending on practices, cut, prepping, etc. But I think if there's any news, it's that it's a thing to consider, not necessarily a requirement.
