Follow Gods rules to stay healthy
The keeping of pigs and poultry in close proximity has been implicated in the 1918 influenza pandemic. That was a strain of avian flu similar to what scientists believe the world could be facing again soon. Birds and pigs have similar imune receptors and humans and pigs also have similar imune receptors. Put the two together and you create the conditions for a viral species jump. Jewish people dont eat pig, when the arch angel Gabriel revealed to Saul in the bible food that is now okay to eat pig wasn't mentioned, muslims do not eat pig. As a recent muslim convert the health benefits of some of Gods instruction in the koran has become apparent: ablution, the ritual wash before prayers, involves sniffing of water (gently, and tilting your head forwards) into the nostrils three times (before each of the five daily prayers) and then gently blowing it out again washing nose and hands afterwards. I didnt get a winter cold last year as I usually do living in metropolitan overcrowded (in winter) cold (all the time) damp London. Historically ablution eradicated diseases like leprosy from the muslim world. A system designed by god cannot be anything but perfect.
