Dangers of Eating Pork
Pork is today one of the most widely eaten meats in the world. It is eaten throughout Europe, North and South America, Africa and many parts of Asia. Pork has become very popular because it is extremely cheap and easy to produce when compared to sheep or cattle. There are various cultures that do not eat pork, for example those who follow the Jewish or Muslim faiths. Let us put religion aside and concentrate on the facts about pork and the dangers that it contains.
Pigs are scavengers and will eat any food anywhere. This can include worms, rotting carcasses and dead insects. Worst of all, pigs eat their own waste excrement as well as that of other pigs. One can only imagine where all those toxins go. How do pigs get rid of their own toxins if they continue to eat their excrement? Did you know that pigs do not sweat; they cool themselves using water or mud. So getting rid of toxins via sweating is not an option. Surely, if pigs are unable to get rid of toxins, some of it has to be stored in their flesh. Think about that the next time you take a bite on a pork sausage.
Speaking about sausages, did you know that pork sausages are loaded with undesirable and unhealthy fat? A lot of coloring has to be used to make the meet look appetizing. Did you know that the European food safety authority recently found that the coloring used in cheap sausages can cause cancer? Most of us like crispy bacon with our eggs, right? Do you want to know why it is so tasty? The reason is the high levels of fat and salt that is contained in bacon. In fact, Bacon is one of the meats with the highest fat content. The same goes for salami; you must have noticed the marbling effect of the white fat in each slice.
We should really be a lot more careful about what you put into our bodies. Although certain foundations encourage the consumption of pork as a safe source of protein, they fail to inform us about the pitfalls. It is genuinely up to us to make up our own minds about what is good for us and what can be dangerous to health. The only way to do this, is to ensure that you improve your knowledge and understanding of the subject. Do not be confused by marketing of the pork industry. You may be shocked by what you learned, but at least you will know the truth.
One book that I found very interesting and highly recommend is the best selling book, "The 9 Steps to Keep the Doctor Away", which is written by Dr Rashid Buttar. Here you will learn the genetic link between pigs and humans, and how close they actually are to each other. You will also learn all about the various toxicities and how they affect your health. The book sets out a detailed plan to help you get rid of toxins and to bring the body back to optimal health.
