  1. Pork is categorically prohibited according to the Holy Quran, because of it negative effect on morality and spirituality.

    Read the details in a book by the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, may peace be on him:

    Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam

    Pork eating does cause significant physical problems in modern times also. Let me quote a medical website:

    Cysticercosis is caused by the larval stage of the tapeworm Taenia solium; clinical syndromes include neurocysticercosis (NCC) and extraneural cysticercosis. In endemic areas NCC is an important cause of adult-onset seizures [1-5].

    Approximately 50 million people worldwide are estimated to have cysticercosis infection, although estimates are probably low since many infections are subclinical and there are relatively few population based data on prevalence [5,6]. Cysticercosis is endemic in many regions of Central and South America, sub-Saharan Africa, India, and Asia [1-5,7]. The prevalence of cysticercosis varies within these countries and is often higher in rural or periurban areas where pigs are raised and sanitary conditions are suboptimal [1-5,7]. In some such communities the rate of epilepsy approaches 3 percent, and 25 to 40 percent of these cases have evidence of cysticercosis [2-4].

    Individuals with cysticercosis also present for medical attention outside of endemic areas, particularly where there are significant numbers of immigrants [8-10]. In a prospective study of 1800 patients presenting with seizures to 11 US emergency departments over a two-year period, neurocysticercosis was the etiologic agent in about 2 percent of cases [9]. Neurocysticercosis was observed more frequently in emergency departments of Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Albuquerque (5.7 percent), which had a higher proportion of immigrant Hispanic patients than the other hospitals. Travelers to endemic areas represent another source of cysticercosis, although such infection accounts for a minority of cases in the United States [9,11,12].

    Too bad, Christopher Columbus and the early Spaniards were not Muslims, which would have saved millions perhaps billions of cases, of this horrible disease, over the last 5 centuries, in South America.
