And don't worry the only diseases they can transmit to humans are: "The diseases associated with swine include ringworm, erysipelas, leptospirosis, streptococcosis, campylobacterosis, salmonellosis, cryptosporidiosis, giardiasis, balantidiasis, influenza, infection with pathogenic E. coli, and brucellosis. Zoonoses Associated with Swine | Institutional Animal Care ..." *********************************YUMM!!!!!

      There is 1,684 mg of sodium in a cup of ham as well, which is about a daily limit for someone in my condition. I would definitely have to take a furosemide for a day or two to correct the situation.

      And while everyone here is right, you most likely won't get sick from it, that doesn't mean its healthy. Our ancestors have been eating pork for a long time... But we are living longer these days because of the knowledge we've gained over the years. Then again, as my ex used to say when someone tried to warn him cigarettes would shorten his life by X number of years he'd reply by saying those are the years I'd spend slobbering down my shirt anyway.
  • Food of every kind is inspected regularly by the USDA and must maintain its high standards. While some food sometimes becomes spoiled, it is usually a problem with mishandling in a local area. Chances are, you'll never come in contact with such an issue.

  • Answering one at a time: *** How safe is it to eat Ham for Christmas*** In the U.S.: safer than beef or chicken, according to the CDC. ***could the pigs been carrying COVID*** Yes. Covid has been found in domesticated animals. However: viruses typically don't do well in ovens that are very hot for an hour or more at a time. Cooking causes CHEMICAL changes in the things cooked...and that includes most viruses as well. Most viruses end up dead after cooking, and though I don't know for sure, I would expect Covid is not exceptional in that regard. *** More complete info: {{ }}
