Hey, did anybody see the videos on break.com about the worms in the pork? Basically, it's a video that's supposed to show that if you pour coke onto uncooked pork, worms will appear. Supposedly, the acid in the soda makes the worms come to the surface of the meat. The video doesn't prove anything to me and I can send a link if you'd like... but just curious if anybody else has heard of this.

There are tiny worms present in all meat and some fish.. but the cooking process removes them all.

Pork, and other undercooked meats can carry Trichinosis as well as a Pork Tapeworm.

Trichinosis can only be seen under a microscope, so pouring Coca Cola on it isn't going to net you any results.

Pork can also carry a type of tapeworm, however it's rare. I suppose pouring coke on a piece of pork might draw a tapeworm out, but you're going to waste a lot of meat trying to find one. The processing and farming of pork these days dramatically reduces the liklihood that you'll find a tapeworm in your nicely packaged pork chop from the grocery store.

It is recommended that you cook pork completely through, Trichinosis can be very dangerous and deadly. It's most commonly found in pork and wild game like bear. Last year, the CDC reported only 12 cases of Trichinosis.

Just in case anyone was interested, I put the link up of the video that claims to show worms coming out of the pork when Coke is poured on it. Now before anybody turns around and starts ripping me about the video being a fake, I'm just showing it because this was the first I had heard of the urban legend and thought the video was "interested" at best.

I remember when I was a kid, me and my brother used to pour washing up liquid mixed with water on the grass, and all the worms would pop up.  mellow.gif  laugh.gif

It's false.
Worms will appear when the pork is rotten, but that happens with any kind of food.
And, in the video, it says "Rougly 2 hours later".
Yeah....right. tongue.gif

Edit: By the way...for the people who are not so smart, the last pic is a joke. laugh.gif

Oh, sorry, that's something I know from pharamacy school... you can likely verify the information on wikipedia and the CDC web sites .

"roughly" 2 hours is likely an under exageration. maggots take about 8-12 hours to develop. I'm thinking it was a few hours longer than 2 as well. The meat is likely rotten or starting to rot.

Freezing pork before you prepare it actually does a lot to kill any kind of parasite. I generally recommend that people freeze it before cooking it. I do.
