FROM "COVENANT MESSANGER" (2007)
The pig or swine is a very popular food item with most
Christians. Yet, Christians are unaware that the God they profess
to believe in had condemned the eating of swine's flesh. The
condemnation was based on some very sound biological, principles.
Here are some facts on pork that prove it to be a very unhealthy
food to eat.
A pig is a real garbage gut. It will eat anything including
urine, excrement, dirt, decaying animal flesh, maggots, or
decaying vegetables. They will even eat the cancerous growths of
other pigs or animals.
The meat and fat (on those 'nice' strips of bacon) of a pig
absorbs toxins like a sponge. Their meat can be 30 times more
toxic than beef or venison.
When eating beef or venison, it takes 8-9 hours to digest
the meat, so what little toxins are in the meat are slowly put
into our system and can be filtered by the liver. But when pork
is eaten, it takes only 4 hours to digest the meat. We thus get a
much higher level of toxins within a shorter time.
Unlike other mammals, a pig does not sweat or perspire.
Perspiration is a means by which toxins are removed from the
body. Since a pig does not sweat, the toxins remain within its
body and in the meat.
Pigs and swine are so poisonous that you can hardly kill
them with strychnine or other poisons.
Farmers will often pen up pigs within a rattlesnake nest
because the pigs will eat the snakes, and if bitten they will not
be harmed by the venom.
When a pig is butchered, worms and insects take to its flesh
sooner and faster than to other animals' flesh. In a few days the
swine flesh is full of worms.
Swine and pigs have over a dozen parasites within them such
as tapeworms, flukes, worms, and trichinae. There is no safe
temperature at which pork can be cooked to ensure that all these
parasites, their cysts, and eggs will be killed.
Pig meat has twice as much fat as beef. A 3oz T--bone steak
contains 8.5 grams of fat; a 3oz pork chop contains 18
grams of fat. A 3oz beef rib has 11.1 grams of fat; a 3oz pork
spare rib has 23.2 grams of fat.
Cows have a complex digestive system, having four stomachs.
It thus takes over 24 hours to digest their vegetarian diet
causing its food to be purified of toxins. In contrast, the
swine's one stomach takes only about 4 hours to digest its foul
diet, turning its toxic food into flesh.
The swine carries about 30 diseases which can be easily
passed to humans.
The trichinae worm of the swine is microscopically small,
and once ingested can lodge itself in our intestines, muscles,
spinal cord or the brain. This results in the disease
trichinosis. The symptoms are sometimes lacking, but when present
they are mistaken for other diseases, such as typhoid, arthritis,
rheumatism, gastritis, MS, meningitis, gall bladder trouble, or
The pig is so poisonous and filthy, that nature had to
prepare him a sewer line or canal running down each leg with an
outlet to the bottom of the foot. Out of this hole oozes pus and
filth his body cannot pass into its system fast enough. Some of
this pus gets into the meat of the pig (anyone for pig's
There are other reasons grounded in biological facts that
could be listed to show why pigs and swine should not be eaten.
But a true Christian should only need one reason why not to eat
this type of food and that is because God prohibited it. Those
who say Christ abolished the law condemning pork are motivated by
their stomach, not Scripture. The problems with pork are
biological, and Christ never changed the laws of biology.
