Pork Chops...probably Nothing But ?!?!?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Bad headaches, mild intestinal upset, fogginess, and lots of fatigue. On the one hand, I could have a sinus infection coming on strong - but on the other hand I'm wondering if I've gotten glutened.

Any ideas if Safeway pork would have anything in it ? I doubt it but it's all I can think of - pork chops my son & I made the other day (canned mandarin oranges, regular spices, pork chops & my rice). Oranges were Safeway...should be safe.

Just wondering, in case there is something I don't know about the pork ! Just that I have eaten some now & then over the last three days & it's gotten worse...seems likely as is seems to be after I eat some of it ! Argh I hate this....

Don't know specifically about this product but the only time I was glutened knowingly was when I ate some pork chops from the Angel Food box of meat. Turns out the pork chops were packaged/processed in some sort of gluten product. It was then that I finally experienced the real pain of a detoxed gluten episode... it's one I hope I never have again. I sure hope you get to feeling better!

Were the pork chops cut and wrapped at the Safeway store or did they come prepackaged? If they were packaged in the meat department at the local store, they could have gotten cc.

They were packaged in store I think - on a styrofoam sheet & wrapped in plastic. I dunno - as I sit here my sinuses are going to explode...maybe seasonal allergies or something ? Kill me now....LOL...very tired, sore, and headachy. Tylenol doesn't touch it & my tummy doesn't like motrin much...been picking stomach discomfort over facial & head pain after a point though.

My stomach (big D) isn't too bad so maybe it wasn't the pork...I wish I knew.

Probably it was the pork itself. I gave it up several weeks ago after reading about the stuff. I have more energy and feel better. Ate the stuff for years and never thought anything of it. If I ate some today, after being away from it for so long, I'd probably get sicker than hell. Want to know what you're really eating? It's pig crap. Pigs eat anything and everything, including their own fecal matter. It's a filthy, filthy animal that no human being should be consuming. Sure, I'll miss ham steaks, crispy bacon, delicious sausage links, and hot dogs off the grill. But every time I see one of these items, I just remind myself what I'm looking at - pig crap.

That doesn't actually make a lot of sense....pig crap ? So if I eat beef I'm eating cow crap ? Fish swim in their own crap...

Anyway, I'm looking at gluten.

I am feeling better. Not sure if it was a virus or the pork...think I'll stay away from the pork for awhile, it's a rare thing for me to eat anyway.

I agree with you that does not make alot of sense. If you really get down and look at things, all animals have something about them. The point is you want to eat product that is handled properly. My husband is a butcher so I'm a little biased and we love our meat!. He is very anal about our meat we buy. I don't even buy it anymore, that chore is left up to him since he is the professional.:lol: It is possible the item was getting close dated and you may be feeling lousy from maybe it being not at it's freshest. Did you season it with anything when you cooked it? Hope you feel better soon.

I love pork and anything made from a pig. When I eat it I notice some pains and such after eating. I asked my nutritionist and she tells me that pork is just a little harder to digest then other meats. Maybe that's why? I just won't eat pork for days in a row, or eat too much at one time.

    Report on Gluten Free Foods & Beverages Market (2019) gives complete outlook of ... non-celiac patients with more number of new product introductions in ... Awareness of Celiac Disease and Gluten – Intolerance Consumers 3.1.2 ... View the full article
    Okay, thanks. Re: MTHFR - I don't really know yet... I only started reading about it yesterday and it is pretty overwhelming. But it does seem to be common advice that if you have a close relative with it you should be tested, and I guess having 2 copies of the "C" variant, as my sister has, is the "worst" variety of it.  It came to light for her when she was going through infertility and miscarriages.  They discovered that her homocysteine was high, which led to the MTHFR testing. So that is one thing I know I would then want to proceed to do, if I do have it - get my homocysteine tested. My dad died of early-onset Alzheimer's, and apparently there is a link between high homocysteine as well as the MTHFR mutation and Alzheimer's. It also seems like it would be worth knowing if I have it since it could be the cause of my lower levels of B12. And I guess maybe I would need to start taking methyl-folate? I mean, to answer your question, I am not entirely sure what I will do if I do have it.   Probably read a lot more about it... and take supplements like methyl-folate if I really think I need to.  Check my homocysteine & control that if I need to, hopefully to lower my risk of Alzeheimer's.  It seems like a frustrating area because there appear to be limited official medical websites that really even talk much about it (so far).  I have found one article on the NIH that focuses on the link with high homocysteine. I already eat a very healthy diet.  Whole grains, lots of fruit & veg, mostly organic.  I am a vegetarian except for very rare seafood. I avoid processed food and, above all, foods with added sugar...  To me, sugar is by far the worst culprit in the SAD.  I think RA has been ruled out by my 2 negative Rheumatoid Factor tests (one done several years ago, one just this year at my physical).  Also, the way this started in my elbows, and was really only there for years, is just... weird... and definitely doesn't really fit with arthritis.  And there is no swelling to speak of, just mild pain - sometimes aching, sometimes burning, sometimes sharp...  It may or may not fit with any systemic diagnosis versus a mechanical one, but nowadays I do also have pain in my hands, feet, and knees.  So then I think, well maybe it is/was something systemic, but it was worse in my elbows for some mechanical reason but now has progressed elsewhere.  I thought Crohn's was just digestive?  (Of course, many people think that of celiac.)  So I haven't really investigated that one much. My ANA was retested and is back down to "negative," so I think that pretty much rules out lupus.  I believe fibromyalgia is still on the table. Anyhow....  Your point is nonetheless taken.  I do want to rule out celiac and go from there.  At this point I'd sure love to find out it is something I could control through my diet!
