    Another pork free Primal here. Not because they are too cute to kill (although that pic is adorable, yogabear), but because I buy the O3/O6 ratio argument. I don't eat pork or poultry.

    To the OP and anyone else who can't imagine life without bacon. Did you know that US Wellness Meats sells sugar free BEEF bacon?
    Awesome stuff.

      Another pork avoider here. Pretty much for all the same reasons.

        I eat bacon occasionally, and sometimes I'l get a pack of maple sage ground pork from my farmer, or have some ham at Easter, but outside of that piggy doesn't really 'do' it for me.

          i avoid all pork other than wild pork and i have shot wild pigs myself. with a high powered rifle and from a distance. the guys use dogs and knives and i try not to look. i wont eat domestic pork unless it is served to me and i am being polite. altho occasionally i will make pork broth out of free range pork bones or make boil ups with them. i am maybe a rarity in that i dont get the big thing about bacon. i need to have it hidden in something to be ok. i also have some jewish blood so i hide behind that rather than lecture people about the animal rights issues and 03/06 thing. i dont do domestic chicken either other than for the above social reasons.

            I'm VLP (very low pork) for similar reasons to Paleobird. The little bit of pork I do eat comes from delicious, happy pigs running around rooting for tubers. And the uncured bacon of it can practically stand up on end even when it's been out of the fridge, which I'm told is an indicator that the sat fat content is high and pufa content low (at least compared to soggy, wimpy bacon).

              I actually LOVE pork but find it very difficult to find ethical sourcing for it, so I don't eat it very often. I do buy high quality bacon when I can - maybe I'll have to try that beef bacon from US Wellness!
              yay!

                I eat pork maybe once or twice a month and I see no reason to eat it more often than that...

                  Same here, with exceptions maybe once or twice a month when I know I'm getting lots of O from fish. I think I'll havre to heck out the beef bacon.

                    Don't like bacon, and the SO is tired of pork so we eat it maybe once a month (he'd get it free from work for years and I have to beg for variety from ground beef and steak, the only two meats he will happily eat). Only exception is pulled pork.

                      I eat ground pork from time to time because I have a pasture-raised source of it and it's awesome, plus it tastes great as a part of a combo meatloaf (ground lamb, pork, and beef all mixed together). Not really a bacon eater or much other pork though, so very sparingly actually.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                        the cannibalism aspect makes me want to eat it even more

                        also, baby anythings are cute but when they grow up.. woo. fell down the ugly tree and hit every branch
                        beautiful
                        yeah you are

                        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                          I love pork but try to buy free-range whenever possible. On the ethics and emotions surrounding the eating of farm animals, there was a brilliant series on UK television, "Kill it, Cook it, Eat it" where they attached a kitchen and restaurant to an abattoir with a big viewing window. Various species were killed during the series and the audience were left to make their choices. One issue I had was that the meats were cooked fresh - I always thought a bit of dry ageing etc was better.

                            I avoid pork as well. Although I do actually love it. I avoid because of the suggestion that it can contribute to fatigue. I refuse to eat factor pork as the animals are treated below anything close to a humane standard.

                            But I would ask, why is it impossible to humanely kill them? A bolt or bullet to the brain should be quick and painless. Wouldn't methods that are used in cattle be effective in pigs as well?

                              Then there's also Ray Peat's insight that pork is full of PUFA and therefore unhealthy.

                              Plus they are ridiculously cute

                              I think we share about 90% of our DNA with most mammals. Heck we share 50% of the DNA of a banana

                              But keep in mind that sharing the DNA is not the same is sharing the proteins. Many, many genes that are shared are not expressed the same way - so really it is the protein overlap that would matter.

                                actually i think bleeding them out is a quick mercy killing, the only real problem being them freaking out about suddenly being upside down

                                tossing them in a small pool and electrocuting them wouldn't look or seem any prettier

                                people eat pig brains so a bullet or bolt gun wouldn't be ideal
