Why can you eat ham raw but not bacon?

Chef's answer
I actually have two reasons for this. For one, Parmas ham is intended to be eaten raw. As such, it will be inspected for anything that could harm you very rigorously. Bacon is desined to be fried so many pathogens and germs could well be in it but not harm you since by frying, you'll kill them anyway.
