Pork on the other hand is actually pretty safe - though I wouldn't want to eat it raw.

Ya, don't eat pork raw. The pig tapeworm (Taenia solium) is so dangerous that two of the world's major religions outlawed consumption - both Kosher and Halal. Well, that and Trichinella spiralis.

Unlike the beef tapeworm, the pork version can migrate to organs outside the gut, notably the brain and eyes. Cysticercosis - very nasty indeed.

Interesting. I threw raw pork in there due to trichinosis, I had no idea about pig tape worms. Could you get that from eating just the muscle, or would you have to eat organs to get that one?

Undercooked pork meat, mainly. Here's a link:

Best not to read that while eating breakfast, by the way. Especially if it has bacon/sausage/ham.
