Swine Flu Round 2
Eating pork is dangerous.
1) Eating pork increases your risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Vegetarians and vegans have lower rates of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity than non-veg*ns.
2) Eating pork increases your risk of getting food poisoning. Most food borne illness stems from animal products. Examples: e coli, salmonella, and campylobacter.
3) It is possible that Swine Flu can be spread the same way as e coli, salmonella, and campylocater: from improper food handling. All announcements about the "safety of pork" have included the requirement of "proper food handling," indicating that transmission of Swine Flu is possible through eating contaminated pork products.
