58. Not to mention that pork has about 75-100 different parasites
and diseases. Not to mention the lovely Tania Solenium or however it's spelled, otherwise known as the tapeworm. Some of these parasites and diseases will not die even if you burnt the meat.

When I was studying Islam there was something I read on the Internet about a science project a Middle Eastern boy did. He took Coke and put it on a raw pork chop or steak and let it sit. After a while he noticed some kind of parasite coming out of the meat.

With the kind of conditions these hogs live in on these kinds of farms, there would probably be even more disease and parasitic laden pork products out there.

And I had pork steaks last night. Great.

Sorry I don't mean to gross you out.
