Do you think pork consumption should be banned?

I think it should. It is not healthy and there are more drawbacks than benefits from certain vitamins and minerals that other foods contain. It's proven to do far more harm than good.

  • No.

    I understand some countries bans drugs, since it's extremely dangerous. But we can't ban everything that's unhealthy either. Since everything may be misused, dangerous etc. Both candy, meat, cars, beer, sugar etc. is unhealthy and dangerous. So therefor it's not as easy to ban thing. By the way, people should have freedom to choose what they want to eat too.

    • Of course a pork eater would say that.

      Would anything who eats pork think it is bad and should be banned?

      The sale of pork is illegal or severely restricted in Israel and in certain Muslim countries. Do a Wikipedia search on pork.

  • As with any claim, you should provide proof of your claim with facts.

    In this instance, you should provide proof that pork is more damaging and less beneficial than all other acceptable foods. Until then, its just a pointless discussion of opinions that is meaningless.

    • I see you couldn't actually come up with any facts supporting your claim... just another blowhard.

    • Well it's certainly damaging to the pigs and environment (see my main post).

  • Not before they ban smoking all together. That's more dangerous than pork consumption.

    At least with pork consumption it only affects the person who's eating it. Smoking affects everyone around the smoker . There's second-hand smoke and third-hand smoke.

    Everything is bad for you, even fresh air 😏

  • No, they shouldn't be banned. Very soon, everything will be banned. If you think pork is no good, then just don't eat it. Don't ask for other people to be deprived. I'm Italian, there's absolutely no way that I'm giving up my prosciutto.

  • my answer is simply , care for your own life and business. live and let live...
    Your beliefs in terms of what to eat or not as god absolutly nothing to do with anyone else but yourself. dont mess with my plate. By banning your are forcing your ideals on others. personally i wouldn't tolerate that

  • Taking away someone's free will of what they should eat is wrong.
    If so, do you want to ban cakes, sweets, chips, fast food as well?
    Just because you think it's wrong because it's not the healthiest, does not give you the rights to ban what someone can or cannot do - or in this case, eat.

  • Ban pork? Do you think it's the government's place to tell the people what they can and cannot do? Why not ban cigarettes, alcohol, and fast-food? Why not ban pornography? Why not ban motorcycles? The government has no business dictating to the people.

  • Really? Ban pork?
    It is a good meat and people like it, except for certain religions that don't approve of it for whatever reason.
    And your argument that 'it is proven to do far more harm than good' is based on what facts? I ate pork growing up and still do, so what harm are you referring too?
    Next you will want to ban alcohol, which does have harmful effects, but lots of people like that too.

  • Fine in moderation and balanced with a healthy non western diet. I dont eat animal products in my diet but if I'm offered those types of food I wouldn't reject it. Or if I'm on vacation I'm gonna enjoy it eating whatever I want. Then I'll resume eating my no r msl diet.

  • Pork is delicious but still feel guilty because it comes from living things. The answer is nope because world population's still growing and we need more foods. So best solution is we must give pigs happy lifes before we send them to butcher and have to kill painlessly.

  • there's a lot of things people eat that are harmful, if you ban this then you might as well ban the other ones too. Too many people with health problems because of poor eating habits and bad nutrition, a lot of people are not well informed either.

    So no, I dont think it should be banned.
    Instead advertising for fast food, junk food and processed food should be banned and people should be more informed on whats good for them so they can make better decisions.

    • Yes but guess what. You have pastors and parents that won't instruct healthful eating into the people they are over. They let them do as they please and afraid to may a stand on it.

      There's 50 year old people who don't know to quit getting milk shakes at Dairy Queen and don't care it is harmful. They just want to get the taste. Church goers who eat hot dogs and pizza and need bypass surgery that they wouldn't have needed had they withheld certain foods from eating. Only the 7th Day Adventist Church seems to still preach against the eating of certain foods. All others just do whatever and whenever.

  • of course not. that's just stupid. at least if you are going to try to rule people's lives make it something that's actually bad for you like drugs or alcohol. things with no benefits and many drawbacks health-wise.

    • Of course a pork eater isn't going to want pork banned or think it is wrong.

      Yes but Leviticus chapters 11 and 14 also says to abstain from pork. Can't just hold the New Testament and ignore the Old Testament.

  • Government shouldn't be given power to ban food sources.
