Eating pork

Since I am a black guy and I don't eat pork, people assume I am Muslim (which is funny since the Bible mentions something about not eating swine but then Jesus said in the New Testament something like, "it is not about the filthy animal he eats but the words of his mouth and so on). But then it also goes to some of these things also:

- pigs have no sweat glands...

- eat their own feces, children, basically anything

- love dirty enviornments

- no reference to a pig is good: ballhog in basketball, pig stey (I can't spell today), eat like a pig

- often pass on diseases to humans who eat them often for long periods of time

And then I saw this:

Monster Pig

Anyway, do you partake of swine?

Bardock42
They taste delicious.

chithappens
So do deer and they don't do all that nasty stuff. Almost anything is better to eat than pig.

2D_MASTER
Yeah I eat Bacon on occasion but I can't stand the taste of any other form of pork. Dirty filthy animal ,yes. Tasty, no.

Fishy
I have to agree with Bardock, they taste great which is a good enough reason for me to eat them.

Besides do you think cows are healthy or can you think of a positive saying with a cow in it? Doesn't mean we shouldn't eat cows.

debbiejo
Pigs are scavengers and that's why the Bible prohibits the eating of it. To eat it would defile your body. There are many scavengers that are mentioned in the Bible that people are not to eat.

I've seen humans dirtier. Mostly at Tool concerts.

I'd like to see some background information on the 'pigs often pass on diseases to humans who eat them often for long periods of time'.
We had big cases of mad cow decease and bird influenza, but fatal pork chops? No reports.
Pigs are actually more resilient to infections and parasites because of their varied diet and effective immune system.

debbiejo
Well at that time in history, people didn't understand the importance on cooking things well, and pork has many parasites.

Pandemoniac
The same with cow and chicken (no pun), not to mention fish left uncooked.

Robtard
Jews and Muslims are a silly lot when it comes to food. Pork is healthy for you, considering it is cooked/prepared right. Besides, chickens eat their own shit, chickens live in dirty environments; why doesn't Judaism and Islam forbid them?

"Pigs harbour a unique (when compared to other domestic animals) range of parasites and diseases that can be easily transmitted to humans. These include trichinosis, cysticercosis, and brucellosis. Very commonly, pigs are also known to host large concentrations of parasitic ascarid worms in their digestive tract. The presence of these diseases and parasites is one of the main reasons why pork meat should always be well cooked or cured before eating. Some religious groups that consider pork unclean refer to these issues as support for their views. "

They do consider predator birds to be off the menu.

I love pork and bacon rules, my wife doesn't eat pork not because she doesn't like it but she had a pet pot belly pig growing up and to her it would be eating your pet.

BlaxicanHydra
My Sister's like that. She won a lamb in a carnival contest which she took home and put in our backyard, it lived as our pet for about two months. Then, my Dad sent her to summer camp and killed and ate the Lamb while she was gone there.

She still can't eat Lamb, 15 years later.

I've always wondered why pigs and pork have a bad rep. They're the posterchild for unclean food among religions. I've known Jews and Muslims who break every dietary law.....except pork, it's the one they'll follow without exception. Some Jews will eat sushi, and some Muslims will drink, but no they won't touch "swine's flesh". It's really funny and hypocritical if you ask me.

I'm not sure how this changes anything about how nasty a pig is. I also forgot to mention they can't be poisoned. That is some weird shit

The medical science finds that there is a risk for various diseases the pig is found to be a host for many parasites and potential diseases so yea good for you not to eat it .

Any plant or animal is capable of containing diseases and parasites. You'll note that people do not get sick from eating perfectly clean pork products.

I just don't dig on swine....They're filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.

A sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie. I'll never know 'cause even if it did, I wouldn't eat the filthy mother****er. Pigs sleep and root in shit. That's a filthy animal. I don't wanna eat nothin' that ain't got enough sense to disregard its own feces.

Creshosk
Cows also don't have functional sweat glands.

I'm not sure what that has to do with anything seeing as how all that has to do with is keeping the animal cool. Dogs and cats don't have sweat glands either. This doesn't make them "filthy animals". Cats are usually regarded as being rather clean animals.

And the reason why "pigs like dirty environments" is because they don't have sweat glands and use mud to cool themselves. Any pig would be "Happy as a pig" in any environment that it was kept cool in.

And I would like to see a more reliable source for scientific "fact" than a Wikipedia article.

I eat loads of Pig and have never been ill because of it, so thereīs no reason not to really.

Fish eat crap from the sewers, ships and numerous other odd weird and wonderful things, not to mention living in a highly polluted environment.
I eat fish as well.

Someone mentioned that the Bible forbids the eating of pig, quotes please! From what I know there are only two laws in the bible, love God & thy neighbor.

If your referring to the old testament, these were GUIDELINES for the times the people lived in in them days and not for now. I mean it was also "forbidden" to shave your beard off, how many people wear beards these days?

That large pig pic is a fake by the waysmile

PITT_HAPPENS
That you donít eat pig because of the taste is one thing but if you actually see what cows, chicken and other live stock live in and do pigs are no worse. Chickens are riddled with disease, cows are covered in their own feces and hell chickens are even feed the dead chickens that they were just with the other day.

"#2. I have heard that pigs are immune to poisonous snakes (rattlers) and would even kill them if they came in contact. I was wondering if it was true of potbelly pigs???

---Pigs are remarkable creatures. Technically, they are not immune to snake poison, but the sheer size of a farm hog or wild boar means the venom from the bite is spread over a larger body. A rattle snake bite can kill a 150 lb human or a 150 lb (or smaller) pig. The same amount of venom may not be fatal to a 1500 lb pig, because the venom is spread over a larger body mass, but the pig will probably be quite ill."

Larger pigs can survive amounts of venom far greater than smaller pigs. That's the technicallity of it. Smaller pigs can be taken out with amounts of poison that will not take oout larger pigs.

It does however show that pigs can be poisoned. Your claims are technically pigshit.

My sources are from books and I don't have a link. I don't feel like typing it. I've done it before but I'm not about to do that when it "technically" it is right there LOL

The size is not the techinalicity - being posioned is being posisoned regardless of size. It does not say fatal.

Miss that part did we? did you know that people have survived rattlesnake venom? I guess according to your logic those people can't be poisoned either? And that makes them nasty individuals?

Just another post by a pig owner.

"My friend's pig was bitten by a diamond back rattler right between the eyes. It almost died, but survived after daily treatments. The pics I have are AMAZING.....the pig started losing its entire hide, starting from the head back.
They are VERY graphic, and the only pics we have ever seen of such a phenonoma. The thick, leathery dead hide peeled back, gradually leaving a bloody mess...all the way to the tail, where is fell off!
Because it was a potbellied pig , the vets say the layer of fat saved his life.
His hide never came back "right" he looked like a burn victim.
But he DID live through it."

ESPECIALLY when the infection thing was tied to non-venomous snakes?

Looks like you're dodging around the issue because you want desperatly to hold on to the outdated idea that pigs are nasty creatures when they aren't really that different from any other creature. They can become infected from wounds, can be poisoned. They can bleed if injured and the skin broken. They are not inherently nasty creatures any more so than any other creature, INCLUDING humans. Hell, little babies will sit in their own feces and play in the mud happily. Since babies are a more natural state of being before learning what things are wrong and what are right I guess that means that Humans are inherently nasty too right?

chithappens
I did not say pigs can't die. Once their hide is exposed then they are vulnerable just like any other creature (although more so). It is not the poison that gets them like that.

PITT_HAPPENS
As a side note they typically use pigs to test anti-venom and medical treatments for humans because the effect of snake venom in nearly identical to that of humans.

You'd have us believe that it was coincidence that its hide started having problems after the bite and that its because its a nasty animal that caused its health problems?

So tell me einstien, howcome all pigs don't do the same exact thing?

Face it, no matter how hard you may try your claim of pigs being immune to poison has been thourghly debunked.

So your irrational hatred of pork prodcuts and the pigs themselves is just that irrational. Which means that it is just as rational as racism... in that its not.

The question did not ask about injesting the venom of a rattle snake.

It specifically says that the amount of rattle snake venom that can kill a 150 pound man can kill a 150 pound pig.

Only difference is is that pig is the adjective that you'd put infront of them rather than human in your case.

The ones who have looked into the pig disagree with you and your supposed books. Books which convienently enough are the source of your claims so you don't have to back them up.

Even without you proving your claims they've already been debunked.

Look into what is inside a pig. Way to skip my posts, and actually ingesting snake venom if very different than being injected with it due to the acids in the digestive system. Please tell us the book that you read that says what you are claiming or do a search on the web to find some thing to back up your statement, until then you are just talking BS. My sources come from experts, personal accounts and from the veterinary society that does the test, hell my wife have done them as part of her medical training.

Besides being bullshit as others have said... how does that prove that a "pig is nasty", if anything, it proves that they're a resilient species.

I consider personal accounts more important than "expert" opinion. After general facts are known then other stuff can become skewed.

*This is a very lazy paraphrasing.

"Part of what is known as a general fact is that pigs have things in their bodies most other animals don't have, partially because of the enviornment they like to dwell in - dark, wet, and dirty places. In a lazy example, they roll in mud a lot; mud contains lots of bacteria and the such, gets absorbed into their pores and as a result, they are immune to certain things (similar to antibotics; dead virus enters the body and immune system then builds up defenses)."

Pigs get infected easily but that is not the same as poisoning.

Plenty of things are messed up if you simply go by official books and the such. Historians certainly know this to be true.

A lot of things have certain benefits to them. Like why is it when "experts" recommend all these diets, they never mention that you could cut out a meal a day and be just as healthy (and actually more healthy)? No one NEEDS three meals a day. Even people playing sports do not NEED three meals a day.

Damn near anything with food and medicine ends up falsified.

And no, I am not a diabetic.

Robtard
Many animals roll in mud, Elephants cover themselves in it when available to both help keep cool and to keep parasites away. I don't think "mud rolling" = Immunity to poison.

Still, how is being immune to poison make a pig dirty/filthy/unclean?

Im fairly certain horses are immune to rattlesnake poison as far as it won't kill them, are they "nasty" because of this?

Pigs get infected easily but that is not the same as poisoning.And this has to do with what exactly?

So they can be infected easily yet they are supposedly immune to the bacteria in the mud they live in?

Sounds like two different clashing stories to me.

And no, I am not a diabetic. Dogs do not have sweat glands, which is why they pant, kangaroos lick themselves to cool them selves off, cows burp methane gas, chickens are feed other chickens and I could keep going on.

As for your example of ďexpertsĒ and diets, most of them are trying to sell a product which is their diet so a very poor example. The difference is my information is coming directly from the veterinary medical community, the ones that actually work on pigs you know like medicine, surgery and medical testing. I would rely more on them then anyone laymen that did a little reading on the internet or books that think they can diagnoses their petsí condition which is normally way the hell off, ask any vet this. That is why they ask them their symptoms and not what do you think it is?

The real reason they hate pigs in the middle east is because their staple there was wheat, and pigs used to eat it all the time. They also lacked sweat glands and consumed lots of water which caused problems for their crops, the drinking of urine pigs do is gross so i guess that attributes to it, but i like bacon. I don't really get down with the other stuff.

Many animals eat their own waste or vomit as with cows and dogs just to name a few.

On Thanksgiving Day, I do not eat turkey, I eat Pig because turkey does not taste as good to me.

Also, pigs have been used to grow organs for humans.

Pigs are very smart animals...some even consider them to be right up there with Dolphins.

The "laws" or guidelines set forth in religion when it came to pork came from several different angles...some of which had to do with no knowledge of modern medicine and how that relates to food prep. Those laws are now archaic.

Chithappens, an athlete should eat 6 or more times a day and those meals should be carefully prepared. Pick up any fitness or bodybuilding magazine. Also, I am walking proof that 6 meals are better than 2 or 3. I have some before pictures and I am just about done with my diet and I will then post my after pictures. The only difference was my diet.

Some Jews will eat sushi, and some Muslims will drink, but no they won't touch "swine's flesh". It's really funny and hypocritical if you ask me.



There was no refridgeration, Reynold's wrap or USDA when the Torah or the Koran were written. Dietary laws are obsolete.

Yeah, I was about to mention refrigeration. Plus, they all lived in extremely hot places. Eating pork would have made some people sick too, but obviously due to poor handling, and lack of refrigeration (and thus pork goes off quickly)

Add some Ketchup...it will taste better.

personally I dont eat pork, not for religious reasons, but because I just decided to stop many years ago and to begin to eat it again would probably make me sick . I do remember its taste and it was good, however its just not for me any more, plus you must cook it very well in order not to get parasites.........
