Re: if you eat pork you should read this
I think that you pulling articles from a religious/spiritual website is why you feel folks are dismissive. Why are you being so dismissive of their ability to live a healthy enjoyable life eating pork.

Folks with religious beleifs are not easily swayed, so although they may express their desire to live life their way, we all know that you will live life your way.
Go right ahead.
But posting a second link with some of the same names and the same religious/spiritual overtones only signals to readers that this is not a disucssion that will impact "your truth" regardless of reason, science, and civil disussion on our side. I previously explained why religions make such rules. I could look further on the unclean animal list and explain why bottom feeding fish (accumaltor of toxins and heavy metals) and shellfish (a popular allergy among humans) are prohibited but you fail to understand that my point. I was trying to explain it was good that religions made such wholesale restrictions before science understood why foods made some folks sick. I now think of such restrictions as tradition, and hoped you would see it as such.
I would honor you if you followed such a tradition. I pity you if you are so blind that you cannot see how your restrictions were developed and why others donot feel obligated to follow them.
Moderator you may as well shut this thread down.
