Why Pork Prohibited in Islam?
The eating of pork is prohibited in Islam for numerous reasons, a growing number of which are becoming very obvious as scientific research progresses. The eating of pork is injurious to health. The swine flesh is infested with germs, parasites and bacteria which can be transfered to man when consumed. The list of parasite found in the pig include tapeworm, roundworms, Faciolopsis buski, Paragonimus sp., Clonorchis senesis and Erysipelothrix rhnsiphathiae. The cyst of the pig's tapeworm Tania solium, for example, can cause brain damage, cramps, loss of consciousness, hysteria and / or insanityif it lodged to the brain. The cyst does not only settle in the brain, it can also be found in the other vital organs such as eyes, heart, lungs and liver.
Pork also has the highest content of fat impregnated within the meat. The fat of the pig is not easily digested and is deposited as animal fat in the human body. In addition, a diet high in its fat content could lead to diarrhoea and obesity. A high fat diet raises blood triglycerides and cholesterol levels which increase the risk of coronary heart deseases. Apart from its adverse effects on the health of its consumers, findings have suggested that eating pork also effects the human character. It diminishes the human being's sense of shame, in relation towards what is decent. The deplorable sexual behaviour of the pig and its filthy habits may adversely affect the behaviour of its human consumer. "Man Will Be What They Eaten"!!!!
