As a biologist (dim distant past) I became well aware why Pork was deemed an unclean meat by Abrahamic religions, (basically Jews & Muslims).
Many of the parasites that infect pigs can also infect humans, poorly cooked pork was dangerous, hot climates make matters worse so the best solution was don't eat it . Remember that pig hearts have been transplanted into humans on a temporary basis.
But Greek culture had some roots & links to Celtic culture where pork was accepted.
Well, I'd say at least you're spared bacon ice cream, Ian. That invention could surely only happen once in the world, and it already has...
No bacon would be having an ill effect on me.
The Ice Cream here in Turkey (and Greece) is excellent, Algida Ice cream is actually the same company as Walls in the UK, but Walls are also sausage manufacturers & in the UK use a lot of pig fat in their cheaper ice creams, but not here in the Aegean/Mediterranean regions.
I miss bacon & pork though, and Tmax & Delta films
