Food Is Not Your Enemy


Pork: Safe or Scary?

First, let’s get this out of the way: You cannot get swine flu from eating pork. The World Health Organization has made this very clear. As for that other cause of pork paranoia, trichinosis, you should have no worries at all about contracting this parasite as long as you cook pork to an internal temperature of 160 degrees–which often means the center can be a bit pink (this is good if you want a non-shoe-leather texture). But are there other problems with pork? Check out my latest “Safe or Scary?” column over at AOL’s ParentDish to find out.
