Almighty Allah has blessed us with so many delicious and really healthy foods to eat. But there are certain things which need to be avoided and the instructions given by the Almighty Allah regarding those things are pretty clear. In Quran Allah Says “0 ye believe! eat of the good things that We have provided for you be grateful to Allah if it is Him ye worship” (2:172). One such thing that needs to be avoided is swine Flesh or Pork. In Holy Quran Allah Almighty has forbidden the use of swine flesh.

Quran Says “He hath forbidden you only carrion, and blood, and swine flesh, and that which hath been immolated to (the name of) any other than Allah. But he who is driven by necessity, neither craving nor transgressing, it is no sin for him. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful” (Qur'an 2:173).

Consumption of swine flesh is not feasible for the human body. It can cause many diseases. Swine is a filthy animal which lives on offal and the consumption of this filthy animal affects the eaten. Swine Flesh has more fat than muscle-building material and it is more liable to disease than other kinds of meat. Some of the diseases caused by the consumption of pork that science has discovered are trichinosis, char¬acterized by hair-like worms in the muscular tissue.

Muslims have been given clear instruction by the Holy Quran to eat only those foods which are permitted by Almighty Allah and avoid things like the Swine Flesh as it is harmful for the health.

World's Healthiest Countries - Forbes.com
Methodology: To compile our list, we attempted to gather health and environmental statistics for every nation. But due to incomplete data, we only ranked 138 nations around the world.
Does your country make the cut?
Iceland
Sweden
Finland
Germany
Switzerland
To see the rest just read more.
Australia
Denmark
Canada
Austria
Netherlands
United States
Israel
Czech Republic
Spain
France

Admittedly there is more than just diet in volved in the parameters, but I don't see even one Koranic country making the list.

The pig is as clean as its keepers allow it to be. Its flesh is a healthy as any other and the only reason not to eat it is because a Holy Book says not to - which is no good reason at all.

Allah says muslims can't eat pork, not non-muslims. I'm not a muslim, so therefore, Allah has allowed me to eat pork and pork products.

I love bacon! I could give up mustard though. I hate mustard. Is there any religion that says you can't eat mustard? I'd consider it.

I think Allah also believes you to be an infidel as well if you're not Muslim

The only food that bacon does not improve is bacon.

I beg to disagree.
Each successive piece is better than the ones before.
Bacon is one thing I can happily pig out on.

Yes I agree with this. The only time bacon makes me sad is when I have no more on my plate to eat
