You are going to die! Part XXII

Did you know that tens of thousands of people worldwide die because of swine each year? I’m not talking about some minor flu thingy; I’m talking about the real threat from these retched creatures.

Fact is that any decent sized single pig or a group of smaller pigs, domestic or wild, can kill a person. According to government data in the USA and Canada alone approximately 40 people are killed each year by pigs – six times more than by sharks worldwide. Many are the tales how veracious swine’s have disemboweled and eaten unsuspected humans. One such tear dripping tale is about an Indian boy in Delhi 2006 who at the tender age of three only wanted to say hello to some of these assassin’s and got eaten in the process, leaving a grieving family behind. What most people do not suspect is that swine’s actually are omnivores and that they hunt together as well as dogs or other pack animals. Every pig pitches in in a fight. Pigs attack in several ways - they charge and slap their heads into the victim slicing it with their protruding tusks and/or cause a great deal of blunt trauma. They have powerful muscular necks and fight each other that way. They sometimes attack other things with by biting into them, often pinning the animal with a hoof or two front hooves and biting in with the front teeth. Another thing they do is get a protruding body part (ear, foot, etc) in their mouths and bite down, sometimes shearing it off with the immense bite pressure of their side teeth.

But this little story doesn’t end with direct murder, oh no, there is another, more subtle way these creatures kill us by the thousands each year, by being sneaky enough to let us eat them! Around 100 000 people dies from food poisoning each year, a vast number of these are contributed to pork meat. But it doesn’t stop there. Tens of thousands of people around the globe die each year from eating too much salty fatty meat clogging up arteries. Even if the cow probably is the main culprit in this case, one shouldn’t discard the plotting geniuses of the swine family.

I wonder if this makes Muslims smarter not eating bacon or if they are more stupid not helping the rest of us killing the swine's?
