|Date: 10/23/2008 10:44:00 AM From Authorid: 4995 I DO NOT eat pork. I saw a video once of a person who poured Coke on an uncooked porkchop and all these worms,parasites I guess,came wriggling to the surface. Good warning post.|

|Date: 10/23/2008 10:45:00 AM From Authorid: 7830 ya, God had a reason for saying no to pork! ugh..nasty stuff.|
|Date: 10/23/2008 10:45:00 AM From Authorid: 49689 Trichura Tichurasis aka whipworm..huh only thought you could get that from eating dirt..anyway it's easily treated with a 3 day drug treatment|
|Date: 10/23/2008 10:58:00 AM From Authorid: 30093 Yeah but it sure is delicious.|
|Date: 10/23/2008 11:20:00 AM From Authorid: 15228 I'm fairly sure Trichura can be cooked out of the meat, at least according to the center for disease control. Most of these diseases nowadays pertains to homegrown hogs that are fed raw meat garbage, that is why there is such a reduction in disease outbreaks due to legislation banning the feeding of garbage. Large hog producers feed hogs grains like ground up corn and soybeans. In Germany raw pork is a delicacy and they don't have any significant problem with disease outbreaks. The last several food related disease outbreaks here have been related to vegetables. I'm not saying pork is a health food by any means and If someone doesn't eat pork due to religious restriction that's fine, and there was probably excellent reasons way back when for restricting certain food items.|

a) TRICHINELLA SPIRATIS ( Trichina worms )
It is the most dangerous parasite to man ( Rheumatism and muscular pain). The infected persons shown no symptoms, recover very slowly some die, some reduced to permanent invalids. No one is immune from this disease and there is no cure.
b) TAENIA SOLIUM ( Pork tape worm )
The worm causes malnourishment of the person leading to anemia, diarrhea, extreme depression melancholia and digestive disturbances. Cysticercosis means that larva enter the blood stream then settle down in one or more of the vital organs of the body, for example: brain, liver, lungs or spinal cord. They grow and encapsulate, inducing pressure to the
system around, resulting in dangerous diseases (diarrhea,digestive disorder, anemia, chronic invalidation).
c) ROUND WORMS
Examples: Ascaris, which may lead to digestive disturbances, appendicitis, obstructive jaundice.
d) HOOK WORMS
Examples:Ancylostomiasis, which may lead to anemia, oedema, heart failure or retarded growth ( mental and physical), tuberculosis,
diarrhea and typhoid.
e) SCHITOSOMA JAPONICUM
Bleeding, anemia and other syndromes. If ova are settled in the brain or spinal cord, paralysis and death may occur.
f) PARAGOMINES WESTERMAINI
Infestation leading to bleeding of the lungs ( endenve haemoptysis)
g) PACIOLEPSIS BUSKI
Digestive disturbances leading to persistent diarrhea; generalized oedema.
h) CLONORCHIS SINENSIS
chlonorchiasis-obstructive jaundice, liver enlargement.
i) METASTRONGYLUS APRI
Causes bronchitis, abscess of the lungs.
j) GIGANTHORINCHUS GIGAS
Cause anemia and digestive disorders.
k) BALATITIDIUM COLI
Causes acute dysentery and general weakness.
Fusiformis necrofurus: causing foot-rot which is very difficult to heal.
Salmonella Cholera suis: causing cholera
Bruceellosis: Acute, sub acute and chronic. It may lead to permanent disabilities.
Swine Erysipelas: causing Erypelas in man.
Small pox: is was a source of infection to man.
Japanese B-encepphalitis: It is the source of infection
Influenza, foot mouth disease, gas tro-enteritis of the new born babies.
Toxo plasma goundii- It is a very dangerous diseases.A new born baby of an infected woman may die within few days or weeks after delivery. But if he survives he may develop blindness or deafness.In adult chronic exhaustive fever with enlarged liver and spleen may occur. Pneumonia, or celebro- spinal meninggitis which may lead to death or madness. The patient may become blind and deaf too.
Fats In Pigs:
Pork contains more fats than other meats. Therefore, people who are fond of pork are more obese than others. Cholesterol is higher in their blood thus making them more prone to asthereosclerosis cardiovascular accidents and sudden death.
Flesh of the pork is hard to digest and may lead to chronic digestive disturbances. Pimples, boils, cysts are common in pork eaters. These are some of the parasites and diseases found in pork and/ or the skin of pigs and certainly there are many more. There is still no means of killing these parasites, in the tissues, neither has anyone found a method of expelling them, even produced any specific treatment for the diseases.
|Date: 10/23/2008 12:06:00 PM From Authorid: 15228 Actually, Pork does not contain more fat than other meat, in nutritional studies it is usually grouped with beef as red meat. Its myoglobin content is lower than beef and some wild game, but much higher than chicken white meat. And listing all those diseases related to pork, you left out the fact that eating the uncooked meat of other animals such as chicken carries the same risk. Trichiura is caused by consumption of soil or food that has been fecally contaminated, not only with pork, but in many other foods. Trichinellosis was associated historically with eating Trichinella-infected pork from domesticated sources, wild game meat was the most common source of infection during 1997--2001 per the center for disease control. Again, I say historically I can understand why there were dietary bans on eating pork, but I don't think the concern is the same today.|

Before anybody becomes too afraid to eat pork, I don't think all the facts stated here are entirely correct:|
The Bible also allows eating food that was previously considered to be unclean; in Acts Chapter 10 of the New Testament. My husband is a Medical Technologist knowledgeable in the field of Parasitology. He saw this list and stated that the majority of the parasites you listed are not only pork-related; some can be related to deer & moose meat, beef, lamb and snails, particularly if the meat is wild and/or in a foreign country. Ninety percent of the illnesses identified here, if caused by pigs, are pigs who feast on feces (a problem on private farms and in foreign countries). The pork sold within the United States is inspected as is the rest of the meat in grocery stores and the chance of getting seriously ill with what is described here (if the meat is cooked properly) is one in a million. As far as it being a fatty meat, no disagreement here, but you can buy pork chops & trim the fat off. Doughnuts can make you fat also.

The human whipworm (Trichuris trichiura or Trichocephalus trichiuris), is a roundworm, which causes trichuriasis when it infects a human large intestine. The name whipworm refers to the shape of the worm; they look like whips with wider "handles" at the posterior end.|
Infection occurs through accidental ingestion of eggs (which are usually found in dry goods such as beans, rice, and various grains) and is commoner in warmer areas. The eggs hatch in the small intestine, and then move into the wall of the small intestine and develop. On reaching adulthood, the thinner end (the front of the worm) burrows into the large intestine and the thicker end hangs into the lumen and mates with nearby worms. The females can grow to 50 mm (2 inches) long. Neither the male nor the female has much of a visible tail past the anus.
Whipworm infestation is detectable by stool examination, which can detect eggs and charcot-leyden crystals. Mebendazole is 90% effective in the first dose, and albendazole may also be offered as an anti-parasitic agent. Adding iron to the bloodstream helps solve the iron deficiency and rectal prolapse.
Whipworm commonly infects patients also infected with Giardia, Entamoeba histolytica, Ascaris lumbricoides, and hookworms.
Infection can be avoided by proper disposal of human feces, not eating dirt, and not eating crops fertilized with night soil.
So obviously this worse for a vegan than non- vegans

Cestoda is a class of parasitic flatworms, commonly called tapeworms.|
The life cycle of a tapeworm starts with the victim eating undercooked, infected meat. The tapeworm will then grow and release small packages of fertilized eggs and sperm. These packages are excreted by the host. If they happen to land in grass, for instance, the package will open. By that time, the tape worm eggs will have developed. The eggs are released onto the grass. If a cow were to eat that grass, the eggs would become larvae and burrow into the cow's muscle. If that cow was eaten without being cooked thoroughly, the whole cycle would start again.
The effects of cestodes are usually very minimal. Those who are infected often describe the following symptoms: abdominal discomfort and pain, cramps, colic, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, restlessness, vertigo, headache, tiredness, malabsorption, anorexia, muscular pain, vitamin deficiency, megaloblastic anemia, weight loss (or gain), intestinal blockage, jejunal perforation, appendicitis, pancreatitis, pseudo-incontinence, pruritis ani, rectal-flutters, spontaneous voiding of segments from the anus, depression, and psychosis. In the past, through self-infection of Taenia solium (the pork tapeworm) there have been serious life-threatening infections of taeniais (also known as taeniosis) which increase the chances of neurocysticercosis
|Date: 10/23/2008 2:41:00 PM From Authorid: 53284 In the days that the Bible and the Koran were written, pork was not safe to eat. The primary concern then was trichinosis. Heating pork to an internal temperature of 160 degrees eliminates the trichinosis issue. Pork is safe to eat and it tastes yummy!|
|Date: 10/23/2008 2:47:00 PM From Authorid: 10245 where's my bacon?|
|Date: 10/23/2008 4:00:00 PM From Authorid: 59418 I'm sure you're right in saying these things, but if cooked properly, pork is fine! It's the same with all meats - they can all give you fairly horrific illnesses - salmonella, E. Coli, shigella, toxoplasmosis, listless parasites....But all these things ARE rare so long as you cook your meat properly.|
|Date: 10/23/2008 4:38:00 PM From Authorid: 14909 Show me the bacon, and the pork chops.|
|Date: 10/23/2008 4:48:00 PM From Authorid: 42945 I love pork and cook it well...if we looked at the worms that can be in any uncooked meats we wouldn't eat anything, you should see all the worms in tuna fish!!!!but cooking kills them all....I had a farm and had to worm the chickens regularly and if you saw what came from them ewwwwwwwwwwww but we still eat them don't we??? and I love bacon!!!|
|Date: 10/23/2008 7:01:00 PM From Authorid: 21903 eew...luckily I rarely even eat pork becuase its just so fatty. But once in a great while, I still have some...might be a little while before I have it again, this kinda grossed me out! lol.|
|Date: 10/24/2008 5:45:00 AM From Authorid: 51876 Nowdays Everything has the potential for disease or parasites that is why we have pretty good Food Inspection in the U.S. if you look at the percentages overall.We have problems but between FDA getting the word out solutions can be found more quickly to minimize outbreaks.Take the Tomatoe scare a few months ago...it was caused by packing plant in South Texas that shipped Jalepeno's, which were the contaiminent and transfereed to the tomatoes.It was a Restraunt owner in Minnesota who discovered it, but because the FDA was looking for causes and being open with the public, the case can be made that they did a good job.They were criticized for not figuring out first but because of their public duty they announced every move.So, I eat anything that is Inspected and Clean.cept squerrl or froggies,bleech!|
|Date: 10/24/2008 9:39:00 AM From Authorid: 63366 I wouldn’t advise breathing either all sorts of nasty stuff in the air, and I’m not counting pollution. MMM Pork LOL|
|Date: 10/24/2008 6:41:00 PM From Authorid: 35430 And if I catch one of those diseases, I'll die eating A Very Sweet Meat. Yum!|
|Date: 10/24/2008 8:30:00 PM From Authorid: 62118 Most people cook meat before eating it.|
|Date: 4/26/2012 9:04:00 PM From Authorid: 65974 i think this is a good article but more people would belief it is a health issue if you had left the 1st two sentences out which deals with scripture says cause non believers will shun it like another sin blabla blah. most everyone sins daily breaking the 10 commandments on a regular basis, so eating pork is just another sin instead of looking at it from a health standpoint.|
