Is it safe to eat pork during flu season?


Answer by  kimber18 (514)

Properly cooked pork is safe to eat. It has nothing to do with flu. Not sure what else to tell you, if you watch / read the news, you will learn that eating pork will not give you swine flu, it is spread to contact with another person who has the illness.

It is definitely not advised to eat pork during flu season. Because the pork by its nature induces cold and flu in a weak person. In case of flu season there are several chances for infection of cold and flu. Even if there are some traces in person who have it, it may induce it.

In the U. S. all meat production is monitored and governed by the FDA. It's been a long, long time since there's been a problem with pork. Swine flu is a function of direct contact with pig feces, not cooked pork.

Yes. The influenza virus is spread from person to person by sneezing, coughing, or touching an object bearing mucus and transferring it to one's mouth or nose. It cannot be contracted by eating pork. The H1N1 virus was called "swine flu" because it had some genes that resembled those of influenza viruses normally found in pigs.
