Something to ponder
I think it was more for health reasons, like oh say, parasites and because pigs don't sweat so they have no way to release the toxic waste build up in their bodies. That and pigs are some of the nastiest animals on the earth, they will literally eat anything, even excrement.
Pigs are actually extremely clean animals.
So the question is,is the religion the cause of the wars?Because religions has brought discrimination in all the aspects of life including food?
And now days,tell me what is the reason,of which they are not allowed to eat pork.
A long time ago some people got nutritional advise that helped insure thier wellness...avoiding pork and possible trichinosis food poisoning could have saved thousands of lives resulting in possibly millions of offspring surviving thus far could be a good thing. ...why turn your back on good advise?

Okay,and what it has to do with religion?
You mean that pork is bad for coke,therefore is bad for humans?
But a lot of people in the past use to ate pork,except those with radical religion,like today.
I showed the video to demonstrate why people in the past never ate pork. It was considered unclean because the worms got into people..
If the religious people would have said "Do not consume meat" I guess it would be different in terms of what you have stated in your post,but what they have done is religious indoctrination on arbitrary own interests,for a better control of the masses.
If you are truly conscious, you simply cannot eat flesh. Children are indoctrinated to eat flesh, they by nature do not wish to take that death energy into their bodies. But survival takes over and they do it to gain the praise of their parents. Sad, people should not eat meat until they have matured enough to make the choice for themselves with all of the truth and the facts behind the death industry.
If you are truly conscious, you simply cannot eat flesh.
On contrary if Humanity will go back ages for one reason or the other they will eat a lot of meat even raw meat.
As humanity rises from the animal instincts of their past into a future of promise, meat will no longer be needed. Meat was for hunters of past but it has become out of control and nature will have to make some changes soon to create a balance once again.
On arbitrary choice without any true reason than religious beliefs to control the masses.

The rules from the past which these people of various religions have adopted are still good nutritional advice...thats why they havent given them up...not only that but the believed source of these nutritional guidelines (God and His prophets) led to varying successes over time by following the rules handed down to them..the coincidences experienced as a population or religious sect, working to provide positive results meant these peoples believed this advice was good and the source was legit....again why turn ones back to what was proven good advice
