Comment: Dear Snopes. I apologize for the yelling, but my dog pressed CAPSLOCK and then ate the button. Now he OMANK.

As to your comment:

quote:
Farmers will often pen up pigs within a rattlesnake nest because the pigs will eat the snakes, and if bitten they will not be harmed by the venom.
I have never EVER seen this on any farm I have been to.

quote:
The pig is so poisonous and filthy, that nature had to prepare him a sewer line or canal running down each leg with an outlet in the bottom of the foot. Out of this hole oozes pus and filth his body cannot pass into its system fast enough. Some of this pus gets into the meat of the meat of the pig.
Never heard of this either. Not saying it's not true, I guess, but it seems to odd and unlikely.

quote:
Unlike other mammals, a pig does not sweat or perspire. Perspiration is a means by which toxins are removed from the body. Since a pig does not sweat, the toxins remain within its body and in the meat.
If I'm not mistaken, most mammals DON'T sweat. Don't dogs pant because they can't sweat?

quote:
Pig meat has twice as much fat as beef. A 3 oz T-bone steak contains 8.5 grams of fat; a 3 oz pork chop contains 18 grams of fat. A 3 oz beef rib has 11. l oz of fat; a 3 oz pork spare rib has 23.2 grams of fat.
I always thought pork was advertized as being leaner than beef.

I recall a thread last month where we discussed the whole pork thing but I can't find it.
Having raised pigs, they are clean animals. They roll in the mud to cool themselves. They will choose one place in the pen to elimate and only use that.
Sweat has nothing to do with toxins, organs have that job.

So much more to debunk must go hit something.

of course look at the source, that may have something to do with the missinformation.

It is Pork vs Other Meats
Per 3 ounces:
Pork Tenderloin 139 calories 4.1g fat
Beef tenderloin 175 calories 8.1g fat

Pork rib chop 186 calories 8.3g fat
Pork loin chop 171 calories 6.9g fat
Pork boneless sirloin chop 164 calories 5.7g fat

Not only is the OP nutrition information for a pork chop way off, but there are several different kind of pork chops and they didn't specify which one.

Upon examining the website cursorily, I believe that these people are cultists who have a radical agenda sustained by misinformation on various subjects. I wouldn't give anything this site says much credence.

Dogs (and cats) can indeed sweat. The problem is that their bodies are covered with fur, so the only place where it's convenient for them to have sweat glands is under their feet.
