    Uncured pork can leave you with coagulated blood. Cured pork is probably the way to go if you eat pork.

    I know, I know, a weston price link. But still interesting.

    I've always considered bacon and pork as a kind of dirty meat for some reason.

    Edit. just read the thread and realized it's been posted.

    I hate reading stuff like this. Pork meat is by far the cheapest option as a student, particularly free range pork mince (~4/kg vs 10kg for beef mince). The only good thing is that animal welfare standards are significantly higher in the UK, so I may be able to get away with eating it, since most of the studies are looking at generic (badly raised) pork.

    Some good points made here and especially some things to read about after reading this post: The Conscientious Omnivore: Pork | Whole9 | Let us change your life. about the miserable conditions of industrial pork.

    Last summer at the farmer's market I talked to some people at Homestead Natural meats and they said they have to supplement their pigs and that "Pasture Raised Pork" is somewhat of a misnomer. The reason being is that the pigs just eat so much.

    I love bacon but need to cut back since I've mostly been buying the cheap stuff - uncured high quality stuff is just too expensive. So maybe higher quality but less often will be the way to go. With regular pork, I love it but it definitely gives me a few digestive issues.

    Heh, I remember almost forty years ago when we kids tried to tell two adult smokers that smoking was bad for them! They responded almost exactly the same way as you Neckhammer. One of those smokers died in his fifties from lung cancer the other guy died little by little from a series of strokes. Both died because of smoking, and for being ignorant, long before their time.

    It has been known for a very long time that pork meat, including bacon, is not the most healthy kind of meat. I heard it already as a teenager, so nothing is new to this at all. I eat it though, but not on a daily basis. Personally I wouldn’t eat any red meat every day either…

    Here's the thing. If you vary your diet, none of this should be an issue. I feel that I eat a fairly limited range of food. Even so, salmon, squid, oysters, chicken liver, chicken meat, pork, beef, cheese, and eggs offer me enough choices that I wouldn't ever really need to eat any one of those things to excess.

    So pass the pork steak - I haven't had any in days!

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Love me some bacon...not all Jews have to be Kosher, just like not all Christians have to be Catholic. That's why religon rocks, they want members so bad you can do almost anything and it's still cool.
