The scientific and medical reason why Allah banned this was because...

-Worms and parasites and transfered from pig to man, such as Trichina Worms, Tapeworms, Hook worms ext... these are responsible for diseases such as.. Anemia, inflammation of the bowels, Pneumonia and serious diseases of the liver and chest.

- Uric Acid which is a known cause of heart disease and rheumatism has 20% extraction rate from the kidneys of a pig.. Herbivorous have a 80% extraction rate, there for pigs have a higher concentration of Uric Acid is found in Pork.

-Fatty Acids, pork fat is harmful to the body, being difficult to digest and to convert to energy. Pork fat is absorbed by the body and accumulates in human tissue as animal fat. Herbivorous animal fat is broken down by the body within the blood stream, and is available as an engery source..
