Just a side note before this begins. I am tired of all of the nonsense I have heard about how Pork is some terrible thing for you to eat because pigs are _________________ (insert some fallacious reasoning here). Quite frankly, every animal is equally disgusting for us to eat if you think about it. They’re animals, not people. So they’re not going to have the clean living/eating practices that we do. If you shun eating pork for some religious reason, more power to you. I have all the respect in the world for people who can uphold spiritual rules and behaviours they believe in, because it takes a lot of faith and dedication. If you don’t eat pork because you don’t eat animals in general for some moral reason, although I don’t get you because I am a self-proclaimed meatatarian (if you have no idea what that is, check out the commercial below) I applaud your ability to be a higher life-form than I am able to be.
But if you’re one of those “pork is gross but all other animals are just fine for human consumption” good day to you…I SAY GOOD DAY!
I mean, not for anything, but everyone’s favoured meat of choice is chicken for some reason. Now, chickens, you understand, shit EVERYWHERE. And I do mean everywhere. And then you take grain and spread it all over the place. You think the chickens avoid eating the grain that has touched it’s own poop or the poop of others? In case you think this is a toughie, the answer is: of course not. Just saying.
ANYWAY, tangent done. The purpose of this video is for me to deliver the message not of “eating pork is bad” but rather that “eating raw meat is a dumb ass idea”. For God knows what reason, we have taken to eating barely warmed meats in thin slices and somehow think this is OK. Like raw meat has suddenly become not as much of a health risk as it once was. Pffft. I blame Sushi. Ok, so I am the type to eat my steak medium rare, but quite frankly there has been hundreds of years of prior experience that says this isn’t deadly. Not sure what the science behind this is, but the point is, it’s the reality of the situation. Lets stop trying to reinvent the wheel and simply learn from our ancestors mistakes. Raw Chicken = death. Raw fish = poisoning. Raw pork = brain worms.
The moral of the story is? If your pork comes out pink on the inside, don’t worry we live in North America. We won’t starve to death if we have to wait 10 minutes for the thing to finish cooking. Just stick it back on the fire. Or, let some nasty looking worms call your brain Home.
