You may know pork as “the other white meat”. But there are some facts about pork meat to consider when deciding whether or not to incorporate it into your diet. First, pigs eat large quantities of food, which dilutes the hydrochloric acid concentration in their stomachs. This allows toxins, viruses, parasites, and bacteria to invade their flesh, which may be present when we eat the meat. Pigs are similar to shellfish, in that they cleanse the earth of its toxic material–they will eat anything! Also consider that 1 slice of bacon has around 21 grams of fat; 3.5 ounces of ham has 11 grams of fat; 1 pork chop has around 6 grams of fat; 6 spare ribs have 35 grams of fat; and all are high in cholesterol.
