The Dark Side of Pork!

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.

Just a side note! 2009 Pig Book Summary!

USA needs to eliminate the pork for more than health and fitness reasons!


  1. Great article Super Diva! Aside from the facts you stated, anyone that has ever seen video footage of how pigs are treated and slaughtered at factory farms would think twice about contributing to their horror. Just another reason to avoid pork!

  2. You are so right Kevin and Shauna! There was a recent documentary on HBO showing how pigs and hogs are treated and slaughtered and the company was taken to court and there were NO CHARGES! When I find it again--I will post a blog about it!
