Added Leviticus 11:2-8 regarding consumption of pork
'''Pork''' is the name given to meat from a [[pig]] and is a commonly eaten [[meat]] throughout the world. It is sometimes known as the ''other white meat'', the main white meat being [[poultry]]. Pork is eaten both as a cooked fresh meat (e.g. pork chops) or as a cured meat. Cured or processed meat products include ham, salami, gammon and bacon. The pig may be used in many different ways for fresh meat cuts, with the popularity of certain cuts depending on local preference. Most of the animal (colloquially "everything but the squeal") can be used to produce fresh meat. In the case of a suckling pig (piglet) the whole body can be spit roasted or oven roasted.
In [[Judaism]] and [[Islam]]Despite its widespread consumption, pork is considered an unclean meat and is should not be eaten. This is also true of some [[Christian]] denominations such , as taught by Leviticus 11:2-8 ''Of all land animals these are the Seventhones you may eat: any animal that has hoofs you may eat, provided it is cloven-Day Adventists footed and chews the Church cud. But you shall not eat any of God (Seventh Day)the following that only chew the cud or only have hoofs...the pig, which does indeed have hoofs and is cloven-footed, but does not chew the cud and is therefore unclean for you''
