AMAZING FACTS ABOUT FOOD!
PIGS A FOUR FOOTED GARBAGE DISPOSAL
The topic of food that is good for us and food that is not so good, is a discussion that has been on the minds of many since early in Biblical times.
Certain foods were off limits to people in those early times and are called out by name.
For instance, Pork is mentioned as unhealthy because a pig an abomination, then it will never cease to be an abomination and God has a very good reason for calling it as such.
A pig for instance will eat anything including its own urine and feces, rotting vegetables, maggots and even the decaying and rotting flesh of other animals’.
It is also known that a pig can be up to thirty times more toxic than the flesh of a cow, and also has twice as much fat as beef.
So eating pork is far more likely to lead to high cholesterol levels and a far greater increased risk of heart attack or cancer.
Pigs have high histamine levels and sulfur content that lead to high blood acidity.
According to the Bible a pig is so poisonous that God gave it a canal that runs down each leg with an outlet in the bottom of the foot, which passes the pus and filth the animals’ system can’t handle fast enough.
But still quite a bit of this fluid is passed into its flesh.
Pigs cannot sweat or perspire like other mammals either so the toxins that would otherwise be sweated out of the animal remain inside its body.
Pigs carry diseases that can be passed on to humans. God in the Bible even commands that we shouldn’t even touch their dead bodies (Leviticus 11:8)
Did you know that pigs are so poisonous that it is extremely hard to kill them with many poisons even as deadly as strychnine. Hard to believe?
OTHER FOODS THE BIBLE PROHIBITS US FROM CONSUMING
Fish without fins and scales are either scavengers or carnivores and have a high level of toxins in their bodies.
Urea in sharks and other fish gives these creatures a distinctive flavor but the flesh is not healthful in the diet.
All crustaceans and mollusk shellfish have no scales and are therefore unclean.
These sea creatures include shrimp, prawn, lobster, scallops, mussels, oysters, squid, octopus, and crabs are all considered to be unfit for human consumption.
One fish that is eaten by lots of people is the catfish, in scripture this fish is not to be eaten because, it is scaleless and doesn’t have fins.
Not only that but it eats mostly all fecal matter along with the Tilapia. It’s hands off on sharks, swordfish, king mackerel, tilefish, albacore tuna, Spanish mackerel, orange roughy, bluefish, Chilean sea bass, Pacific ocean perch, Atlantic cod, American eel, Atlantic flatfish just to name a few.

This post is not intended to endorse any religion.
It is only giving a historic account of ancient methods of choosing foods that were intended to be eaten by people of that period.
Who would have ever thought that such sound advice could come from the Bible? When we look at scientific research, it’s amazing how some of the same properties in suggested Biblical foods are supported by by scientist of our times.
Amazing how a well rounded diet is laid out in detail that matches what we consider good common sense food.
