You will not hear doctors or the media talking about this, but yes, it has been clinically proven that the consumption of PORK correlates to MS, and Liver Cancer. (See the studies reported by healthline below!)
This is SO SAD TO ME! Yes, I believe these diseases have spiritual roots, like generational curses, unforgiveness, anger, bitterness, self hate, etc. But also yes-I believe when we walk in the ways of YWHW, the spiritual roots and curses that He wants to heal us from as we become sanctified in Jesus, don’t manifest as readily in physical diseases, and death, like they do in people who intentionally walk in the world’s ways. See what His word says....
If you will listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His eyes, and pay attention to His commands, and keep all His statutes, then I will not bring on you any of the diseases I inflicted on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you. Exodus 15:26
So is the Law of Adonai a burden, or was is meant to be a BLESSING for our life? It seems very clear to me. Our King showed us how to fully LIVE and walk in abundant blessings, spirit, soul, and body. This is why His people, of old, and many New Testament believers who love Him through Messiah Jesus today, cry out to Him,
"With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.
With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times."
No, I am not Hebrew Roots, which has become a cult of sorts and leads people away from Jesus, the Messiah, and I hesitate to even call myself "Torah Observant" because of all the assumptions that people make when they hear that. What I am is a completely sold out disciple of Jesus Christ. Yeshua, the One and Only Messiah! I want to be as much like Him as humanly possible. I am filled with His Holy Spirit (for 23 years), who would NEVER break His law, so therefore as I deny my flesh, and live by the Spirit I will naturally find myself keeping YHWH's law as well. And what a BLESSING it is! Just as He created it to be!
Read the studies below to see for yourself, and please let me know in a comment if you found this post valuable! I hope to write more and more about the correlation between walking in the law, the way Jesus did, and true LIFE and HEALTH in our bodies, vs the curses and death of the ways of the world. May Elohim bless your journey with our Savior and lead us all into all truth!
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS "The robust link between pork and MS has been known at least since the 1980s, when researchers analyzed the relationship between per capita pork consumption and MS across dozens of countries (22Trusted Source).
While pork-averse nations like Israel and India were nearly spared from MS’s degenerative grips, more liberal consumers, such as West Germany and Denmark, faced sky-high rates.
In fact, when all countries were considered, pork intake and MS showed a whopping correlation of 0.87 (p<0.001), which is much higher and more significant than the relationship between MS and fat intake (0.63, p<0.01), MS and total meat intake (0.61, p<0.01) and MS and beef consumption (no significant relationship).
For perspective, a similar study of diabetes and per capita sugar intake found a correlation of just under 0.60 (p<0.001) when analyzing 165 countries (23Trusted Source).
As with all epidemiological findings, the correlation between pork consumption and MS can’t prove that one causes the other (or even that, within MS-stricken countries, the most enthusiastic pork consumers were the most diseased). But as it turns out, the evidence vault goes much deeper.
Earlier, a study of inhabitants of the Orkney and Shetland Islands of Scotland, a region teeming with unusual delicacies, including seabird eggs, raw milk and undercooked meat, found only one dietary association with MS — consumption of “potted head,” a dish made from boiled pig’s brain (24Trusted Source).
Among Shetland residents, a significantly higher proportion of MS patients had consumed potted head in their youth, compared to healthy, age and sex-matched controls (25).
This is particularly relevant because — per other research — MS that strikes in adulthood might stem from environmental exposures during adolescence (26).
The potential for pig brain to trigger nerve-related autoimmunity isn’t just an observational hunch, either. Between 2007 and 2009, a cluster of 24 pork plant workers mysteriously fell ill with progressive inflammatory neuropathy, which is characterized by MS-like symptoms such as fatigue, numbness, tingling and pain..." LIVER CANCER "Liver problems tend to trail closely on the heels of some predictable risk factors, namely hepatitis B and C infection, exposure to aflatoxin (a carcinogen produced by mold) and excessive alcohol intake (43, 44, 45).
But buried in the scientific literature is another potential scourge of liver health — pork.
For decades, pork consumption has faithfully echoed liver cancer and cirrhosis rates around the world. In multi-country analyses, the correlation between pork and cirrhosis mortality clocked in at 0.40 (p<0.05) using 1965 data, 0.89 (p<0.01) using mid-1970s data, 0.68 (p=0.003) using 1996 data and 0.83 (p=0.000) using 2003 data (46Trusted Source, 47Trusted Source).
In those same analyses, among the 10 Canadian provinces, pork bore a correlation of 0.60 (p<0.01) with death from liver cirrhosis, while alcohol, perhaps due to an overall low intake, showed no significant link.
And in statistical models incorporating known perils for the liver (alcohol consumption, hepatitis B infection and hepatitis C infection), pork remained independently associated with liver disease, suggesting the association isn’t just due to pork piggybacking, as the case may be, on a different causative agent (48Trusted Source).
Beef, by contrast, remained liver-neutral or protective in these studies..."
