    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!

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

    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.
    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.

    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
