In brief: No problem

There are no worms in commercially produced pork in the US.
That problem (trichinosis) has been gone for more than 50 years. You could eat bacon raw without risk. If you have an upset stomach, PeptoBismol or another antacid might help, but wouldn't make any difference in risk of trichinosis or other worms.
