Hi folks, If you are a regular pork fun, you may not be happy about this post and yet it will do you a mountain of good.
Why you should avoid pork #1
#1.Pigs are a host to a number of parasites, viruses and other organisms, many of which can be directly transmitted to humans, some include:
Taenia solium -an intestinal parasite that can cause tissue infection and loss of appetite.
Menangle virus –a virus that can cause fever, chills, rashes, headaches and sweating.
Trichinella –A parasitic roundworm that can cause edema, myalgia, fever and malaise.
Hepatitis E –A viral inflammation that can cause fatigue, nausea and jaundice. More severe cases can lead to liver fibrosis and cirrhosis.
Why you should avoid pork #2
Pigs are scavengers by nature, which means that they will eat almost anything, including rotten food, feces, urine, carcasses and even cancerous growths.
Unfortunately the digestive system of a pig is incapable of effectively removing these accumulated toxins from the body because a pig will digest its food entirely in about 4 hours. This is simply not long enough to remove the excess toxins that were ingested, these toxins are then stored directly in the fat cells and organs of the pig itself.
Why you should avoid pork #3
It would seem that there is wisdom in those religious teachings that forbid the consumption of what has become a major delicacy.
Pigs do not have sweat glands which means they are unable to remove excess toxins by sweating (like we do). So naturally this means that pork meat would be a much more toxic meat than others and when you consume it you would be taking in those toxins as well. With our current environments, we really don’t need to expose our bodies to even more toxins if we don’t have to.
According to an investigation by Consumer Reports, 69% of all raw pork samples tested (of about 200 samples) were contaminated with a dangerous bacteria known as Yersinia enteroclitica. This bacteria can cause fever, gastrointestinal illness, diarrhea, vomiting and cramps.
Ground pork was more likely to be contaminated than pork chops. This pork also tested positive for other contaminants including a controversial drug called ractopamine, which is banned China and Europe. Many of the bacteria that were found in the pork were actually resistant to multiple antibiotics, which makes treatment problematic and potentially lethal if you were to get sick.
