Do You Eat Pork Often?

Philippines
May 18, 2017 6:05am CST
A post in Facebook about pork/pig. It caused me to rethink of eating pork again! At least we seldom eat it for some months now; very very rare, unlike fish and chicken, along with vegetables which consist our main meals. We had that change in "taste" for pork, when we became very conscious of our health. According to the post, pig/pork is a very dirty animal, so it is usually infected with some parasites which are hard to "kill" even when cooked. What do you think of this?

Ive been eating chicken mostly this month. I do eat pork but not a favorite. Now, fish is a no deal unless it's grilled.

Fish and chicken are more healthy than pork meat. Grilled fish tastes really good!

I still eat pork but with veggies. I think if it is boiled, the parasite will be gone.

They say it is hard to kill the parasite. But if the pig was raised clean, maybe it could not have that parasite.

@cacay1 I think we need to file a cyberbullying case against these parasites.

I don't eat pork - or other land animals - at all. But I've seen what pigs will eat and I'd agree they are pretty dirty beasts.

Maybe their environment or the place where they are raised affects the mat quality. .

I do not eat that much pork anymore unlike when I was young, it's simply not that appealing to me anymore, perhaps my body is telling me something. Oh about the parasites, yeah it happens but I do not let it bother me, never knew anybody personally who got it, I am more worried about the fat, high blood pressure, heart diseases and circulatory blocks.

@acelawrites Their pork tastes good even without any marinade. I do not know maybe it is ,like you've said, raised clean.

I don't believe it. We eat a lot of pork. Perhaps it depends on the country but I don't believe pigs are dirty. They are very clean animals if they are kept in the right conditions.

It is true; if the pigs are kept in a clean sty or area, then they will have clean meat too.

My doctor says pork (not ham or bacon) is a healthy choice. It's a white meat like chicken.

I don't know about that; there's conflicting "views" about pork; but if the doctor say so, it could be credible.

In fact pork is a very common meat here. It is not as expensive as the beef. And this is why we often have it for our meals. I don't think pork is a very dirty animal. It just depends how you raise them. In Europe the people even eat raw porks, hard to believe for us.

Yes, if the surrounding or area where they are raised are clean, then there is no parasitic infection. I don't know they eat raw porks in Europe? It could be dangerous!

@acelawrites I also find it hard to believe. But I think they make sure the porks are clean enough.

The Jewish people banned it as non kosher, because years ago they were considered dirty animals. In most countries, they are raised and slautered differently. I eat it, but only certain cuts, and rarely.

Yes, some religious groups avoid eating it; or considered eating it as against their law; they consider pigs as dirty animals.
