I don't observe Ramadan.
I never fast. In fact, I eat pork at the start of Ramadan, and I eat pork on the sabbath. I also eat pork on Yom Kippur.
I resent the stubborn use of the lunar(lunatic) calendar, when it's the SOLAR calendar we should use.
I also feel the Islamic hatred to pork verges on lunacy, (esp. when some Indonesians objected to Olivia books because the heroine is a cartoon pig. These clowns never realize that they are not asked to EAT the heroine, just read and laugh at the story. No wonder I didn't give any donation or help when they had that tidal wave. ).
You can choose whatever you may like, but remember that the choice you make shouldn't be wasteful and degrade your health. After all health is the most essential aspect of life that is most of the time over looked by us.
Eating pork is harmful to health in many ways. Firstly, no matter how clean the farms and environments on where it is raised may be, the pig is not by nature a clean-living animal. It often plays in, and even eats, its own excrement. Due to this, the pig produces much higher levels of antibodies in its body than other animals. It has been scientifically proven that these high amounts of antibodies, hormones, cholesterol and lipids in pork represent a serious threat to our health. Another harmful substance in pork is the "trichina" worm. It enters the human body and settles directly in the muscles of the heart and represents a possibly fatal threat.
So why is fasting good for us?
We indulge in food most of the time, snacking and nibbling the whole day, heading to obesity. Fasting helps to rest the digestive tract and lower lipids. There are many adverse effects of total fasting as well as of crash diets. Islamic fasting is different from such diet plans because in Ramadan fasting, there is no malnutrition or inadequate calorie intake. Fasting includes maintaining stable blood sugar, cholesterol and systolic blood pressure.
