“And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.” – Leviticus 11:7-8
Bacon, one of the tastiest meats, has been banned by the bible to be eaten. It is regarded as an “unclean” meat to eat. So we are not supposed to eat even parts of it. Sigh!
“Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat, for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them with rags.” – Proverbs 23:20-21
Bible has long forbidden over overeating. But who listens? We love to dig in, and enjoyably do so, as and when it pleases us. There are huge buffets in restaurants these days which are irresistible. Plus on the urge of getting good value for your money, you tend to pile up your plates and there you go.

“Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.” – Leviticus 19:19
So the Bible even forbade us from wearing clothes of two different materials. But how is that such a bad thing? Without blending polyester and cotton weavings, we would have a much lower quality of T-shirts that would shrink. Moreover, fabric blends are a common thing for most clothes now.
