    An interesting linguistic note, in the original Hebrew the word ascribed to the "non-edibles" is more like "detestable" or "unclean".

    But in later Christian texts like the KJB, it becomes more like "abomination", "wicked", "cursed".

    You can practically see the guilt trip changing over centuries from "don't eat that" to "if you eat that God will smite thee!"

    Yep, that's the way I've always interpreted. Religious leaders were leaders because they had enough smarts to look at "known," hazards and, quite literally, put the fear of God into their followers. Continuation of the species was their goal, which then turned into preservation of power. This also goes a little ways to explain restrictions on sodomy and homosexuality, which were widely practiced and accepted in other contemporary societies.

    I could never go vegan. I love bacon, and always will.

    Speaking of which, now is the time to discuss the new red meat research controversy..

    New “guidelines” say continue red meat consumption habits, but recommendations contradict evidence

    That top article is right where I'm at. Every time they tell us something is bad, we just have to wait a little while till they change their minds. So why bother.

    Bacon has such a high protein to fat ratio for meat, for all the demonization.

    Since any risks associated with saturated fat tend to be due to cardiovascular health, it stands to reason bacon, sausage, steak, eggs are all OK as long as you put the work in the reduce cholesterol and other heart/artery choking stuff.

    I wonder if the conflicting studies are a representation of the average person who doesn't get enough exercise and the smaller fraction that do: lots of processed meat and little exercise = bad health. Lots of red meat and pork and decent exercise, what's that going to lead to either than muscle mass and good CV health?

    The only thing I can think of is sodium intake etc. But even that is ok as long as you're sweating it out. In fact extra sodium or potassium is important for heavy duty workouts.

    There are more. But you can eat locusts, according to the Old Testament.

    Remember, these were desert people with no access to decent shellfish anyway.

    Where were they gonna find dolphins or crabs, the Red Sea?

    There were plenty of prostitutes around to provide the crabs, jussayin.
