This will sound radical to most of you, but the latest information available to us now could improve your health, should you decide to take this seriously.
Have you ever considered why Muslims and Jews are forbidden from eating pork? Both religions consider it unclean. Dr. Jeff McCombs, author of the book “Life Force,” found that by eliminating pork, there is a consequent and immediate increase in energy and health levels as well as the body’s disease-fighting capabilities.
According to health experts, the danger of eating pork is an unseen one—a retrovirus called porcine endogenous. While scientists still have no idea how this retrovirus worked in humans, what is known is that it can withstand heating and cooking at extreme temperatures. Brown University reported that retroviruses can dramatically affect the body’s ability to fight off diseases.
There are transposable elements, pirate DNA, in everything we eat.
In pigs, there are lots of transposable elements, including endogenous retroviruses. Most PERVs, like most human ERVs, do not have the ability to code for functional viruses anymore. Because we have a lot of similarities (physiological, immunological, etc) to pigs, there is some concern that PERVs could cause trouble in humans after xenotransplants. This concern has been investigated, and determined to be a very, very, very low risk risk.
Considering that retroviruses are incredibly delicate, the chances of a PERV successfully assembling, surviving through meat processing/transportation/storage on the shelf at the store/cooking, is infinitesimally small. There is also no evidence that a PERV has infected a human, anywhere, ever, including via food.
I dont care if someone doesnt want to eat pork.
But dont try to justify your decision with endogenous retroviruses.
