Dangers Of Eating Pork/Health Line


Eating pork is something that we can never omit in our daily lives, though recently some of us switched to a vegetarian diet, a number of meat-consuming people remains steadfast.

Unfortunately, the risk as we continue to consume pork is on the rise.

The amount of chemicals a pig consumes through feeds and the preservatives it is being injected with to keep the meat fresh in a longer time makes the pork the very dangerous to our health. It carries a lot of risk that consumers should be aware of.

Dangers Of Eating Pork/Health Line

Here are the four Hidden Dangers and Diseases one can acquire simply by just consuming pork meat:

1. Hepatitis E

This virus infects 20 Million people each year and can lead to acute illness (fever, fatigue, jaundice, vomiting, joint pain and stomach pain), enlarged liver and sometimes liver failure and death.


A pork liver holds the title as the top food-based transmitter of Hepatitis E.

In America, 1 out of 10 store-bought pig livers tests positive for Hepatitis E, which is slighly higher that 1 out of 15 in Netherlands and 1 out of 20 in Czech Republic. In Germany, 1 out of 5 pork sausages contain the virus.

Though we can never completely get away with pork meat in our lives, we can only make sure we prevent any infection through cooking the meat in high meat. Cooking pork products for at least 20 minutes but Fat can protect Hepatitis viruses from heat destruction, thus this pork cuts need extra time and toastier temperatures.

2. Multiple Sclerosis

This one is a devastating autoimmune condition involving central nervous system. It can be acquired through consumptions of raw milk and undercooked meat. A significantly higher proportions of MS patients was found to have consumed "potted head", a dish made from boiled pig's brain in their youth.

It could particularly be relevant since according to other research, MS strikes in adulthood stemmed from environmental exposures during adolescence.

Though the role of pigs being carriers of Acinetobacter hasn't been thoroughly concluded, the bacteria has benn found in the feces, on pig farms, in bacons, pork salami, and ham and it actually serves as a spoilage organism.

3. Liver Cancer and Cirrhosis

For decades, pork consumption has faithfully echoed liver cancer and cirrhosis rates around the world and in statistical models incorporating known perils for the liver (alcohol consumption, hepatitis B infection and hepatitis C infection), pork remained independently associated with liver disease, suggesting the association isn't just due to pork piggybacking, as the case may be, on a different causative agent.

Heterocyclic amines, a class of carcinogens formed by cooking meat (including pork) at high temperatures, contribute to liver cancer in a variety of animals but these compounds are also readily formed in beef, according to the same studies that indicated pork has no positive relationship with liver disease.

Pork-transmitted Hepatitis E leads to liver Cirrhosis. Relative to meat, pork tends to be high in omega-6 fatty acids, including linoleic acid and arachidonic acid, which play roles in liver diseases.

4. Yersinia

In the US alone, Yersinia causes 35 deaths and almost 117,000 cases of food poisoning each year. Its chief entry route for humans? Undercooked pork. Yersiniosis's acute symptoms are rough enough — fever, pain, bloody diarrhea — but its long-term consequences are what should really ring alarm bells.

Victims of Yersinia poisoning face a 47-times higher risk of reactive arthritis, a type of inflammatory joint disease triggered by infection.

The solution?

Bring on the heat. 


The majority of pork products (69% of tested samples, according to a Consumer Reports analysis) are contaminated with Yersinia bacteria, and the only way to safeguard against infection is through proper cooking. An internal temperature of at least 145°F for whole pork and 160°F for ground pork is necessary to decimate any lingering pathogen.
