Yes. What a surprise! ...the flesh of hogs that get absolutely NO exercise during their lifetime and get fed a diet of grain has lots of saturated fat and cholesterol.. and it causes high blood pressure in humans? Omg what a breakthrough! /sarcasm Btw. Someone here mentioned exercise... Exercise does not burn off cholesterol. Processed pork (bacon, hotdogs) also causes lung cancer. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/68058.php The reason a lot of people here are reluctant to consider pork unhealthy is because they're defensive simply because it tastes good to them.
