    I've never liked the taste of pork or ham and keep it out of the house. I like bacon, and occasionally eat bacon on a weekend.

No one could diagnose what it was.

    Years later we were talking, and I asked about his leg. He told me that he'd gone to a natoropath who told him to give up pork. Guess what? No more pain. His mum is back raising pigs again, but he says that even if he has a bite of an organic piggie he'll start to feel the twinge.

    That's enough evidence for me!
    This would be the reason why I limit pork. And why I bring up limiting chicken: for physical health.

    Although, this is a salient point.

Fish take up the next rung, followed by reptiles and birds. A bird feels pain, and has a very basic short-term memory. Beyond that, a chicken doesn't do much. There is no play or higher order of desires.

    Mammals are near the top. They have longings and desires beyond survival. Even the lowest of mammals has a fairly advanced memory, and play is a large part of the development process.

    Humans are obviously the top of this pyramid, but I believe there is a sub-step before humans I guess. These animals have fairly advanced cognitive abilities and memories. Primates, dolphins, elephants, and pigs are the most advanced, with mammals that have been domesticated for thousands of generations (cats and dogs) receiving honorable status.

    There are some interesting things about pigs that most people would be surprised to know. There really isn't another animal that can make as great of a pet one generation in to domestication-- even a wolf can be extremely difficult to train. Additionally, pigs are one of the few animals, along with primates and dolphins, that experience sexual pleasures and desires beyond reproductive purposes (farm jokes aside...)

    My purpose with this thread was not to make people feel guilty, but to just look at the topic from a different light. It's sort of the "omnivore's dilemma", where mercy and primal desires come to heads.
    I completely understand and I don't condemn wanting to honor the food that we (may or may not) eat based on this hierarchy. I just think there are more important reasons to eat / not to eat certain animals, based both on the meat itself and how humanely and ethically it has been turned into meat no matter its intelligence level.

    Given a hypothetical scenario where, in an alternate universe, pork is God meat and cures cancer and beef is 100% PUFAs and arsenic and bad juju (but pigs are still intelligent and cows just stand around chewing cud all day long) I would eat pork and not beef.

    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    I self-limit my pork consumption as well but that has more to do with the fact that almost all pork here is factory farmed and is terrible from a quality perspective. I eat whale meat more often than pork.

    Here I just can't get the real stuff, organic is as good as I can get the meat. Still those grain-fed and likely not very happy animals. I do have some organic bacon I use sparingly, but that's it for me. Never really thought of the genetical similarities. An animal is an animal, I think it's rather hypocrite not to eat, say, rabbit, but just ruminants, cause they are less cute. Luckily most primal-living people do not think that way. I have to say though that I don't know if I would be able to kill the animal myself, that would be really hard I think.
