    Puerto Ricans eat to much pork, they remind me of the Romans and Spaniards back in the rennassance..they only eat pork all day. The indigenous Podekwa Indians didn't look or eat like these colonizers.

      Jack Apolo maybe but it has too much fat that clog up the arteries, well I warn many but to each his own, but these sicknesses that it causes are dreadful and painful. Best to you.

    Well I am not a vegan...but sometimes presentation matters...if this would have been shown as prepared in small portions maybe it would have been eye soothing... but those eyes, those painful condition can’t be ignored. Although I know everything non-veg items do have killing procedure, but it’s the presentation as I said...

    I am a meat eater I don't visit Vegan chats and post "This is nasty" or "Yuck! veggies are boring" what a bunch of morons for those who post anti-meat comments. GTFOH! if you don't like meat, don't eat meat, don't eat pork, are Vegan or Muslim because some don't give a sh*t about your anti-meat rants. You're still going to get some type of disease and die anyway, stop telling people what to eat and worry about what you eat.
