Maybe you like pork, but you should know that by consuming this meat you might increase the risk of many diseases. Pigs are animals that eat almost anything, including disgusting things such as spoiled foods, feces and even urine. But the most important thing is that their organism is not able to eliminate all toxins they consume, so they accumulate many toxins in their organs and fat.
Here are some of the dangers that can stand in the pork:
- Yersinia enterocolitica is a dangerous contaminant which may be present in pig’s organism. This bacterium leads to diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, fever and sickness.
- Ractopamine is another microorganism found in pig’s body. This can even cause death.
- Taenia solium found in pig’s intestines is tapeworm that causes loss of appetite.
- Another parasitic roundworm, Trichinella, causes myalgia, fever, malaise and edema.
- Symptoms such as chills, sweating and migraine usually are caused by Menangle infection.
- Hepatitis E viral irritation causes nausea and fatigue.
How to avoid contamination?
- According to experts, all parasites can be destroyed by cooking the pork at high temperatures.
- Never put the foods that can be eaten raw in same container with raw pork.
- Wash your hands after touching raw pork.
- Verify if the meat contains medications, anti-toxins, ractopamine and chemicals in it, when you buy pork meat.
Recent studies suggested many factory farms do not offer clean air for pigs, sufficient sunlight and clean pastures. Besides, farmers use medications and anti-infection agents as food, instead of green grass as that makes the pigs grow faster. Pigs in farms can develop pneumonia and various skin issues due to the unhealthy environment. So, we don’t have to be surprised that consumption of pork may lead to many side effects.
