More on biblical laws

Sort of a follow-up to my previous article - I just read "Why did the pig become so unpopular?" which added a lot of economic reasons for forbidding pig eating to the one I considered before (the disease part - pig meat has to be cooked really well to be safe, otherwise you risk a bunch of problems, which in Israel 5000 years ago is serious).

Interesting.
