Trichinosis is the name of the disease that originates with the trichina worm, which is scientifically named the trihinella spiralis. The trichina worm is one of the nineteen worms found in swine, not to mention lice on hogs or the various swine diseases such as rickets, thumps, mange, ect.
The Trichina worm is deadly. In March 1950 issue of Reader’s Digest, Laird S. Goldsbrough writes:
In the pork americans eat, there too often lurks myriads of baffling
and sinister parasites. They are minute spiral worms which scientist call trichinella spiralis. A single serving of pork,even a single mouthful, can kill or cripple, or condemn the victim to a lifetime of aches and pain.
See why we are warned in the Scriptures to stay away from his killer?
Now what kind of a world do we live in when this @#%$^&# is placed in so-called food stores?
Cook pork thoroughly. Kills any parasites. You also refer to an article that is 53 years old. Any chance of you joining us in this century? Do you have anything to debate? How about some medical opinions from the teeming millions, is trichinosis (lock jaw) treatable?
So basically you are saying that at the time the scriptures were written by people and rules were made up and attributed to a diety, there was a legitimate reason for one of those rules. And that in fact, even up until 1950 our food processing skills hadn’t completely eraticed this problem. Is that about right?
You forgot the intestinal parasites from improperly cooked fish. Then, of course, you’ve got all the GM foods with fish genes implanted in them, so that’s bad too. In fact, they’re finding out that GM genes are showing up in non-GM plants now due to hybridization, so I guess plants are out as food as well. What’s left?
