    It's funny... the side of my family who ate the most pork (rural folk, pork is cheap)... ZERO heart problems, no stroke, not anything that would indicate coagulated blood.
    (talking grandparents here)

    They ate generous amounts of both fresh non-cured pork and bacon. And always reserved bacon fat to cook in.
    Both still mentally fully healthy, and alive in their mid 90's.

    The other side of my family.
    The city folks who were more "health conscious" and replaced pork/bacon with margarine and leaner foods when those fads came along, but still worked an active labor job.
    Heart bypass... prostate cancer... Alzheimers in both... much poorer health in their later years.
    Both deceased.
    One just passed at 96.
    The other passed several years prior.

    The pork isn't worrying me.

    I eat pork but there are sources that say that because pigs and humans are so genetically similar that eating pork is very close to cannibalism, biologically, and can involve some of the same risks.

    So pass the pork steak - I haven't had any in days!
    can do, pass me all that except the squid

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    The cannibal tribes of the South Pacific referred to human meat as "long pork". Seriously.

    Pork makes me nauseaus, ever since I was a kid. A piece of bacon very occasionally is all I can do. Don't care ... Plenty of other choices.

    LOL. That alone will probably put me off pork for a month. But I can't help myself, I love bacon. I have cut way back on pork chops and such like that since reading about pork being so similar biologically, but bacon is my weakness.

    Note to self: no squid in the bunker.

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