Speaking of detox benefits, I discovered quite by accident why I think the Lord told the Israelites to eat no pork under the Old Covenant. I couldn’t eat pork while I was on the detox diet. Why? Because pigs have no sweat glands in their skin (which is why they like to lie in the mud to cool off). Sweat carries away toxins, and pigs retain more toxins than animals with sweat glands in their skin. Which we ingest when we eat pork.
