is there a healthy way to eat pork? or is it all bad?

The healthy way to eat pork is the same as the healthy way to eat anything else: in moderation. And better quality means more flavor, which allows you to be satisfied while eating less that you would of an inferior product.

Presumably, you're talking about "swine flu" and pork. Human infection with swine flu (H1N1 virus) is not caused by consuming, cooking, or otherwise handling pork. Nor is it caused by slaughtering or otherwise handling live swine.

Rather, infection in humans is ALWAYS the result of human to human contact.

I made a blackened pork tenderloin for dinner yesterday.
Jamie Oliver - Recipes - blackened barbecued pork fillets

It was sooooo good and the tenderloin is so free of any fat that you may as well be eating chicken breast.

My thought precisely....there will be an initial downswing on sales no doubt, until people realise that it's not contracted by eating pork. I pity the pig farmer at this time. Ignorance tends to rule. Good time to buy pork at bargain prices :)

I love pork - but am the only one in the family that does - so I don't cook it all that often unless we have visitors and I can force the family to eat a nice roast leg of pork with apple sauce and all the trimmings!

However, this latest crisis for pork breeders may just cause the death knell for locally raised British pork. The industry has been in crisis for the past 3 or 4 years, but they have mounted a fairly vigorous campaign over the past 2 years or so. Many of our top chefs have joined the cause, including Jamie Oliver, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and others.

Pork is good. Lots of pork is better. Who said pork is bad? They're telling you lies, don't listen to them. They are either evil or foolish and misguided.
