The Effects of Eating Pork

A pig is a pet that is eaten by 38 percent of the world's population, but its meat has far more harm than good. Today we will look at the side effects, although there are a few benefits we will cover as well.


There are professional disadvantages to eating this meat. Consumers should first be aware that pork contains carcin-ogen poisoning that causes cancer according to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO) and The International Agency for Research on Cancer.

The study showed that if you eat 50 grams daily of pork, the risk of cancer is 18 percent.

Pork causes Swine Flu in humans; these are the virus that causes influenza in humans. According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it shows that influenza viruses H1N1 and H3N2 come from pork.

It has been reported that the virus has caused the epidemic in the United States. Pork also contains worms known as trichinella worm, which are extremely difficult to die at temperatures as high as 100C.

A 1998 study by WHO showed that pork cooked at 104C, 52.37 percent and trichinella worm remain alive. When these worms enter the human body, they cause a disease known as trichinosis; who have symptoms as follows:

Severe fever, headache, numbness, acne, eyes become pink (conjunctivitis), swelling of the face and eyelids, stained by light. Another side effect of pork is that it contains the Hepatitis E virus (HEV) virus; which causes hepatitis E.

Other pests contained in pork are; Nipah virus, Menangle virus, Viruses in the group Paramyxoviridae are all harmful to the human body. Worse, pork causes illnesses that are resistant (anti-bacterial).

Pork also contains Taenia solium worms. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), they say; you can get these worms if you do not properly cook the infected pork.

When these worms enter the human body they cause problems with the central nervous system, specialist neurocysticercosis and cause epilepsy. Thirty percent of patients with epilepsy are those who are exposed to the worms found on unsalted pork.


It has been proven that 50 million people in the world who suffer from epilepsy are good consumers of pork, either by eating meat or by eating meat sausages. However, there is an advantage in eating pork though they do not overcome the disadvantages of using the meat.

Its advantage is that it is found essential vitamins in the human body; which are B1, B6 and B12. Consumers absorb iron, which helps to strengthen bones as well as pork tightens your skin and makes it softer.

Pork contains magnesium in abundance which is beneficial to the human body as it contains enough protein, which aids the body's defense. Pork also contains fat which makes the body stronger.

But the fact is that even other animals such as beef, goats, sheep, their meat contain the same nutrients. My question to you reader of these copies; who cooks the meat while measuring how much heat it has reached?

Caution, especially pork intake because its effects are greater than its benefits! For questions and advice, contact me for the above calls.
