A man named Zhu Zong-fa discovered tapeworms in his brains, chest and lungs when he visited hospital, after eating pork.
Zhu started to have severe headaches and seizures after he ate pork, but didn’t know the problem until he visited hospital.
The 43 year old suffered persistently over a month and he was perplexed to know the cause of his suffering, so he decided to seek doctors help.
Dr Wang Jian-rong from the department of infectious disease, performed a medical checkup on Mr Zhu and diagnosed him with taenaisis. He also discovered over 700 tapeworms in Zhu’s body.
Dr Wang told Pear , a video-sharing platform: “There are multiple presences of space-occupying lesions in the patient’s brain.
“It’s also in the lungs and fills up the muscles inside the chest cavity.”
The doctor said the infection has caused damages to the patient’s organs.
I believe you’ve read or heard that God forbids the eating of pork in the Bible? God said the pork is unclean and He, being our creator knows what’s best for our health but we tend to follow our own inclination than heeding God’s word.
Had God’s word been obeyed, there wouldn’t be any suffering in the world. “Leviticus 11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.”
“1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”
Pork, although one of the most common articles of diet, is one of the most injurious. God did not prohibit the Hebrews from eating swine’s flesh merely to show His authority, but because it was not a proper article of food for man. It would fill the system with scrofula, and especially in that warm climate produced leprosy, and disease of various kinds. Its influence upon the system in that climate was far more injurious than in a colder climate…. Swine’s flesh would not be palatable to the taste in its natural state. It is made agreeable to the appetite by high seasoning, which makes a very bad thing worse. Swine’s flesh above all other flesh meats, produces a bad state of the blood. Those who eat freely of pork can but be diseased.413 CCh 230.1
Especially would the fine, sensitive nerves of the brain become enfeebled and so beclouded that sacred things would not be discerned, but be placed upon the low level with common things.414 CCh 230.2
