do you people eat pigs? i mean pork.. i've been eating pork since i was little... and.. it doesn't affect my health as far as i concern.. but recently.. i heard from my friends that pigs are dirty.. just see from the way they eat.. and they say pigs actually eat dunk? gosh.. i think that's not true.. chinese in malaysia love to eat pork.. in fact.. it's one of the main delicacy when it comes to wedding or any event.. so.. is it really safe to consume pork? i've even heard that if you eat pork.. you just need to find a type of liquid and apply it on your skin. .and if you do eat pork.. worms will start appearing from your skin.. is it true? so.. anyone can clarify this?

Hi Charles, Oh yes I eat pork and love it, where my husband comes from in the South Pacific this is also a delicacy and they eat pork for their wedding, which we had pork for our wedding and many events there. Yes of course it is safe to eat pork, in all my life I have eaten pork but it must be well cooked. Oh this is not true that you have to put something on your skin because you consume pork. No none of this is true at all it could be old wives tales (stories that were made up years ago so as to make people believe this kind of rubbish).

Hi charles, In my country wild pigs are hunted down and eaten. We had some pigs that were fed only breads and milk lol. Most pigs are fed scraps and garbage, another words rubbish. As for worms appearing on your skin, I think its a bit of a lie... I never heard of anyone that got worm sickness from eating pork... You carry on eating it, dont ever let anyone tell you that again

well, that's the first time i heard that worms will start coming out from your skin if you eat pork.. that's really silly. i have been eating pork since i was a child and i tell you,im still normal. or at least i think i am hehe. kidding aside, i think pork is not dirty because after it is killed, the meat grocers or company clean it so it will not be harmful to human health upon consumption. Here in our country, it is advisable to buy pork or meat from known meat vendors or companies to assure yourself that the pork you're buying is really of good quality and clean.

however though, there is one health concern about eating pork. Eating too much may cause a person to have high cholesterol and may lead to heart attack..
