Is Eating Pork Overrated? What the Bible Says about Pork
Many people grew up eating pork as children, my mother and other family members cooked pork. Back in the day, my uncle would cook every part of the pig. It was weird; he made pig ears, pigtails, pig snouts and more, on different occasions. When I smelled beacon or pork chops I had to have some. It smelled really good. But was it good for me? Then through the years, I started to have many headaches. I didn't know why. My family member started having episodes of high blood pressure, due to eating pork. He also drunk alcohol but that's another story. Pork is deceptive; it smells good and taste good. But it is extremely bad for us, after we swallow it and digest it; It is too late the pork is already sliding down our throats. Some of my family members and I stopped intentionally consuming pork many years ago. That's been over 10 years now; more than a decade ago.
Elevated Blood Pressure
It increases and causes many illnesses, and diseases such as an elevated blood pressure. And I don't miss eating it at all, sure I get tempted. But then I think of the side effects it has on a person’s body, and that is enough to keep me away from it. Research studies shows that pig’s flesh is toxic, and has worms. Pigs eat the slop of the ground, they eat any and everything. You really don't want to know all that pigs eat, they are n-a-s-t-y; and mainly, they are very unclean. It's no wonder that pork is the cheapest meat to purchase in the meat markets.
Pork Has Toxins
Have you ever noticed that pork-chops feel really slimey? That slimey feel is the mucous content, which is the inflammation in the unclean meat/pork.
Scientist researchers found high levels of Enterococci bacteria, a common cause of food poisoning that is resistant to antibiotic drugs. Who would want to eat something that is so toxic, that it's resistant to antibiotic drugs? An antibiotic is a drug that helps your body fight off infections that causes disease. Scientists say patients who have antibiotic-resistant Enterococci infections have a death rate of 37%. Pigs have very high histamine levels. Many people are allergic to pork because of the histamine, and pork also encourages the formation of excessive amounts of mucous (infection) in our bodies. Many people don't know that they are allergic to eating pork.
Swine are scavengers they eat whatever they find. The (U.S.) National Pork Board, have led an aggressive on farm food safety research program since 1994, that states, the presence of parasites in "the Other White Meat."
Back in the day, we used lard for cooking oil to fry almost everything in. Lard is swine fat, and it smells strange. I had this one family member who would use lard as moisturizer on her skin. Also, as children my cousins and I would buy pickled pig feet at our corner market. And we bought little bags of crackling skins, then we added hot sauce, and it was on. We were children that ate what our parents ate.
Detox from Pork
After all these encounters with pigs' meat, I'm sure many people will have to detox their bodies from consuming pork. Also there will be less people getting the colonoscopy procedure, if they didn't eat pork and less beef. I'm sure there are a couple of ways to detox your body from eating pork meat. I believe that if you juice fruits and vegetables for one week, it will help your body detox from impurities.

In many people the disease exhibits no symptoms and is discovered only at autopsy; this is another reason why eating pork is deceptive. In other individuals it causes diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal symptoms, as the worms divide in the digestive tract.
I've seen a video about pouring Coca-Cola (soda) on pork, waited a little while, and then there were worms crawling out of it.
Pet Owners Feed Pork to Pets
Pet owners can't feed pork to their dogs; it will start making pets get ill in many ways. A pet owner claims that her dog had diarrhea from consuming pork meat. Dogs can't eat pigs but pigs can eat dogs, and that's exactly what they do; pigs eat dead carcasses of anything. If a dog can't eat swine, why do we humans force ourselves to eat it? We are what we eat.
Tapeworms Caused by Consuming Pork Meat
The pig is the main carrier of the taenia solium worm. These tapeworms are found in human intestines. The tapeworm can be incurable once it reaches beyond a certain stage. Research shows 1 in 6 people in the United Stated has trichinosis from eating trichina worms, which are found in pork. Studies have proven that pigs/swine contain toxins, yes they are toxic.
Eating pig flesh can cause inflammation and itching. Also causes arthritis and swelling tendons. More reasons not to eat pork: obesity, heart problems, , gallstones, strokes, and there are more unhealthy reasons. elevated blood pressure
