   Application of religious instructions, especially consumption of Halal meat, is a physical and mental health guarantee in human lives. In this study, the effects of pork consumption on human physical and mental health were surveyed based on Quran perspective, narratives, and other celestial religions and medical parasitology .

    In this study, with reference to the Holy Quran, valid interpretations, Hadith of infallible Imams (AS), narrative, other celestial religions, medical parasitology and data bank of PubMed, Sid, Magiran, the required information was obtained concerning the reasons for the prohibition of pork consumption. By Data analysis and comparison of religious and scientific resources, the mystery of Islam's emphasis over the sanctity of pork consumption came into the light.

    The results of Islamic narratives show that consumption of pork meat emenates both mental and spiritual impacts on consumers. Besides, based on Parasitology findings, the consumption of pork meat causes serious zoonotic diseases such as Trichinosis, Cysticercosis, as well as, the presence of toxin and even harmful indexes after cooking are considered as reasons for inedibility of pork meat.

    This study shows that maybe one of the mysteries of the prohibition of pork consumption in Islam could be found in respect of its adverse effects on physical, mental and spiritual health. Therefore, application of religious practices which have scientific base in turn is required to understand the scientific basis of the side-effects of eating pork.
