It is a cleanliness thing. Improperly prepared pork can get you sick, as well as the fact that they can spread various influenza's to humans fairly easily. Pork isn't the only food item on the prohibited list either, shellfish is right up there because again improperly prepared consuming them can be fatal. Basically it was observational science for a fledgling nation that could ill afford having people die off in significant numbers because of what they ate.

Indeed pork and shellfish can give bird flu and has nothing to do with religion.

Okay,and what it has to do with religion?

You mean that pork is bad for coke,therefore is bad for humans?



No, the acid in the coke brings the worms out of the pork. It's just showing you the parasites that live in pork flesh.

Well, I might explain to you that I'm an executive chef by trade and am quite familiar with the same experiment.

I don't believe you're an executive chef, either, by the way.

You mean they live in the pork flesh like day to day life?

Well then this would mean that all those billions which eat pork should be dead by now.

Well if humanity continues in this sustained direction, it will indeed become the barbaric reality you speak of. Cannibalism, and eating every type of animal would become the norm as well in your future scenario. As the oceans are contaminated and depleted, the growing populations are venturing out to find other food sources, so yes unless big changes begin to balance our current state, I will have to agree with you.

Let us hope that humanity takes another direction.

It's because pork is very dangerous to eat without proper refrigeration, and it also transfers disease over really easily. There are also some guidance about mold and mildew etc. Part of those laws in Leviticus are about general safety rules that people wouldn't realize until later generations. The rest of the "religions" copied the whole pork thing to try and seem legit.

So,the religion(s) still dictates.

Doesn't matter to me what you believe. And when I did the experiment for people I would always use the fat under the skin from the belly of the pig. It's much more disgusting than a chop or tenderloin.

That's a bit silly. Billions of people smoke also, doesn't make it any less unhealthy. Lol

No, they are not fatal parasites. But prolonged pork intake or undercooked pork is a health hazard.

It's not a healthy protein choice. Do you work for the pork industry or something?

I have no problem calling BS on this. Refrigeration has nothing to do with this. Visit a Haraam butcher. Much salted & cured pork products. Little Halal meats being salted and cured at the Haraam butcher.

Old school bacon slabs - much mold and funk on them. A simple soda and vinegar warsh would clean it up before you sliced it up for morning meal.

More disease is passed on to humans through hygiene rather than pork. Even now, there is fecal matter under your fingernails. In modern times, we are more likely to get sick off of bad water than pork.

I'd post links n stuff, but we all can Google. The last part about Leviticus, no idea. Sounds legit though.

I think people are told to stay away from pork because it was the norm. The same people have no misgivings on eating shellfish or catfish even (skin instead of scales). Just like humans, they'll pick and choose what they want to follow. Those same people will also invent a reason they are correct when the books state otherwise.
