I haven't eaten pork since August 2007, as a matter of fact I'm a vegan.
Most people stop eating pork for religious, cultural, or health reasons.
Whatever your reason is, if you're trying to avoid the swine altogether (not
just in food), then keep reading. Christien Meindertsma spent three years
researching all the products created from a single pig. You may be surprised at what products contain pork.
Pig vomit is used to hold the scent in cologne and perfume. If you're a diabetic and taking insulin, your insulin more than likely came from a pig's pancreas. Gelatin/Gelatine comes from a pig's skin (hide) and cattle bones. Gelatin/Gelatine is used to harden most medicine tablets. Porcine (Pork) enzymes are often found in cheese. A pig's spleen can be used as an ingredient in pies. The pig's feet can be used to make jelly. Pig fat is used in chewing gum and used to make automobile paint. The bones of a pig are used to make gelatin & jelly. The bone ash is used for train brakes & the calcium from the bones is used to fortify yogurt.
