If you pour Coke (yes, the soda) on a slab of pork, and wait a little while, you will SEE Worms crawl out of it. A message from the Health Corporation of Singapore about the Bad effects of pork consumption Pig's bodies contain MANY TOXINS, WORMS and LATENT DISEASES. Although some of these infestations are harbored in other animals, modern veterinarians say that pigs are far MORE PREDISPOSED to these illnesses than other animals. This could be because PIGS like to SCAVENGE and will eat ANY kind of food, INCLUDING dead insects, worms, rotting carcasses, reta (including their own), garbage, and other pigs. INFLUENZA (flu) is one of the MOST famous illnesses which pigs share with humans. This illness is harbored in the LUNGS of pigs during the summer months and tends to affect pigs and humans in the cooler months. Sausage contains bits of pigs' lungs, so THOSE who EAT pork sausage tend to SUFFER MORE during EPIDEMICS of INFLUENZA. Pig meat contains EXCESSIVE quantities of HISTAMINE and IMIDAZOLE compounds, which can lead to ITCHING and INFLAMMATION; GROWTH HORMONE which PROMOTES INFLAMMATION and growth; sulfur containing mesenchymal mucus which leads to SWELLING and deposits of MUCUS in tendons and cartilage, resulting in ATHRITIS, RHEUMATISM, etc. Sulfur helps cause FIRM human tendons and ligaments to be replaced by the pig's soft mesenchymal tissues, and degeneration of human cartilage. Eating pork can also lead to GALLSTONES and OBESITY, probably due to its HIGH CHOLESTEROL and SATURATED FAT content. The pig is the MAIN CARRIER of the TAENIA SOLIUM WORM, which is found in its flesh. These tapeworms are found in human intestines with greater frequency in nations where pigs are eaten. This type of tape-worms can pass through the intestines and affect many other organs, and is incurable once it reaches beyond a certain stage. One in six people in the US and Canada has TRICHINOSIS from eating trichina worms, which are found in pork. Many people have NO SYMPTOMS to warn them of this, and when they do, they resemble symptoms of many other illnesses. These worms are NOT noticed during meat inspections.(NST, Singapore)
Pardon the pun, but this urban legend is pure hog wash.

United States

From 1997-2001, 72 cases were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most cases were associated with eating wild game (43%), although 17% were associated with commercial pork products and another 13% from noncommercial pork products. Infections may also occur during foreign travel, especially to Mexico and Asia. The percentage of infected domestic swine in the United States is 0.001%

Maybe the OP got it backwards: why are there people who DON'T hate pork? (Oh, wait, gosh darn it...I forgot that I'm Jewish. I might be biased!)

Default heaven hates ham

If you believe science you would know that this "abominable" beast is one of our fairly close cousins. It shares a great deal of our DNA, and there have lately been welcome transplants of skin, heart , valves, and kidneys from pigs to humans. I have heard that porcophobia Muslim zealots in Europe are demanding that Miss Piggy be removed from the innocent gaze of their children. Maybe I'm confused. Why would the creator of all things designed such a versatile creature and then command man to avoid it altogether or risk eternal displeasure?

Wise to not eat any meat. Unless you are starving, and most people are far from starving. Pigs will stomp you when they are full ? Humans can kill you when they are full, or hungry. Lambs are meek, so it's easier to kill them, so they are better than pigs ? The obsession with blood in religion is disconcerting.

I served the "veggie" sausages once, and no one even guessed they weren't pork. I had to show them the ingredient panel on the box. Tofurky makes some really good meat alternatives.

Now you wouldn't catch them eating pork chops or even sausage...ya know, the whole pork thing. Finally, once I felt comfortable enough with them to "enlighten" them a bit, I explained to them what PEPPERONI is made of (as well as the bacon) on their Meat Lovers pizza .
So here they were, ordering pizza NO SAUSAGE, because it's pork, yet they had NO IDEA that the pizza had bacon on it, nor did they know that pepperoni has pork in it!
They were a bit shocked, and it was all in good fun...

BTW, they still ate pepperoni on their pizza anyway



THAT IS SO FUNNT i HAVE DONE THAT TO SOME OF MY MUSLIM FRIEND WHO LOVES MY BRUNSWICK STEW AND WHEN THEY FOUND OUT PORK WAS IN IT THEY KEPT EATING AND ASKED ALLAH TO FORGIVE THEM LOL.THEY STILL WANT MY STEW WHEN THEY COME OVER,I TELL THEM THEY ARE NOT REAL MUSLIM

Pork is forbidden wisdom of God
We do not doubt for one moment that the pig is dirty and filthy animal, the fruit is harmful to human beings, then it lives on dirt and filth, which is unacceptable to the proper and self-repulsive and refuses to address it, because it is a breach of the printing and temperament appropriate to the Almighty God created it.
Secondly: With regard to harm caused by eating pork on the human body, modern science has proved a sentence
Pork is the most common types of meat that contain the most cholesterol, which are associated with increased in human blood increase the chances of atherosclerosis. The fatty acids in pork are different from an unusual fatty acids in other foods, making them more easily absorbed than others in other foods and thereby increase blood cholesterol
Contributes to meat and pork fat in the spread of cancer of the colon and rectum, prostate, breast and blood
Pork meat and pork fat contribute to obesity and related diseases that are difficult to treat
Eating pork leads to scabies, allergies and stomach ulcers
Eating pork causes lung infections which result from tapeworms, lungworms and microbial infections of the lungs.Now swine flu is widespread in the world and is the scourge of the Lord of the Worlds
