Some would argue that eliminating all meat is a good thing.

I think that meat is okay in moderation.

As far as pork, the form it’s in also matters; as some cuts have more or less fat than others. I also think the less processed the better.

My favourite cold meat, love it

Nothing wrong with eating pork, nothing whatsoever.....Pass the English mustard.

Here in Nebraska hog farms, feed lots, all the way to meatpacking are one of the major industries. Live animals have to be checked to guard against the chinese swine flu (it devastated chinese pork production). The plants also have to be squeaky clean to prevent contamination. Sure, the hog haulers are crowded, but the animals are only in there for a few hours at most before they get to feed lots or packing plants.

The world buys a lot from the chinese. One place where it works the other way is pork, the staple for the Chinese diet. With the huge shortfall in domestic production the Chinese government had to come to the US to feed their people.

One trivia fact: hogs have to be a standard size. Too small, or too large and the packing plants won't accept them. So hogs can't be overfed or they turn out to be worthless. The packing plants are highly automated and can't handle oversize carcasses.

Cultural trivia fact: As it happens I often listen to the Spanish language radio station (grew up close to Mexican border, developed a taste for Nortena music). About 20% of the commercials are ads from the packing plants (there are a LOT of them) looking for help. Pay and benefits are comparable to Walmart.

I love Pork it is so good but I have to limit my intake as Pork is a very good laxative.

As Newtricks said pass the english mustard and lets get stuck in.

Pigs or pork if you want, have been a staple part of our diet for a very long time, I refer to the large number of pig bones found near Stone Henge which shows that they had yearly feats on them. We have managed to get this far with eating them but of course, we weren't tampering with the meat at that time. That aside it does not do to stuff yourself with anything so a little is not going to hurt and eliminating it would rob us of a valuable food group.

I see no risks to eating pork PROVIDED it is properly cooked. Pork is far more healthy than eating chicken skin as in fried chicken.




Eaten in moderation should be fine

I dont see any issues with eating pork, bacon and co.

Like everything, in sensible amounts.

Unless you are vegetarian or have religious objections to pork products in particular - then no different to any other meat source.
