Are pigs really filthy? I read when they are on their own they are just as clean/dirty as any other animal.

Pork spoils very quickly in the heat. You can get very very ill from eating tainted pork. The dietary habits over generations developed to describe Pigs as "dirty." It's easy just to say, "don't eat it. it's dirty," than to try to explain germs and bacteria when you don't even know what they are.

Beef and similar animals will dry out in the heat and isn't as dangerous. Why?? I have no idea.
That is very interesting, I always heard that pigs had a different circulatory system than other animals, and that it was hard to poison them, That's why they wallow in mud because thats how they cool off, might attribute to the fact the pork spoils faster ?

Pigs were believed to have first been introduced during the time of the Prophet Noah during the Flood. With all the various animals in the ark and no land in sight, it was getting pretty filthy in the ark so the Prophet prayed to God for help. The pigs were created for the sole purpose of cleaning up the filth in the ark at that time.

Well, if you're a truly devout Christian, you'd hate piggies too...it's in the Old Testament that Swine is a dirty animal (and all those with split hooves) that should not be eaten.

I personally, was raised not to eat pork because my family is Jewish...but I eat Pepperoni and will eat Bacon once in a while because I don't believe in the superstitions and don't eat those meats enough for them to cause any health issues.

As with most other religious traditions (don't mix milk and meat), it's more of a standard of living for people of primitive means (you know, without Fridges and plastic bags) that people still cling to because it's one of the few traditions that can still be adhered to in this day and age without much effort.

Allah forbids it. I think that is really all anyone needs to know.

danged, if I could spell Trichinosis, (a fancy way of saying worms in the brain)I would use it as an excuse to ban pork products, also, I would be able to express just how long it took to get people to understand that pork has to be cooked "well done"----(same thing applies to Bear meat) just pigs got the bum rap first.

If allah were a real God, I'd be more concerned. But for now I'm of the definite opinion that pork fat rules, and adding bacon makes just about anything taste better.
