The consumption of pork is forbidden in some religions. Pigs are the animals that consume the most disgusting things you can imagine such as spoiled foods, feces and urine.
The worst thing is that the toxins they consume can not be eliminated from their bodies, so they actually accumulate in their organs and fat.
Yersinia enterocolitica represents a dangerous contaminant which can be present in the pig’s body. It causes diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, fever and sickness. Ractopamine is another microorganism found in animal’s body which can even cause death.
