Background: Eating and drinking according to health instructions is a major factor in health. Islam recommendations regarding nutrition ensure not only physical health but also mental health. While advising Muslims to consume meat as much as their body requires, Islam forbids certain types of meat. This study is to investigate the effect of pork consumption on human health from the perspective of Quran and medicine. Materials and Methods: Relevant Quranic verses and Hadith and the existing literature were reviewed and described through the use of specific keywords. We utilized relevant materials from the Holy Quran and Hadith and also conducted a literature search through specific related keywords. Results: In four Surahs of Quran and Hadith from the infallible Imams, pork consumption is forbidden. The presence of a group of amines, carcinogenic agents, high fat, and a high level of growth hormones turns pork into a sutoxin product. In addition, the presence of significant zoonotic diseases, quick decay, and easy contamination are other reasons which make pork consumption harmful for human. Conclusion: Noticing the significant role of nutrition in physical and mental health, divine religions have pronounced recommendations on using decent and healthy nutrition and refraining from using the unhealthy materials. Pork is one of these unhealthy and unusable materials which unfortunately, due to lack of sufficient awareness, is still consumed by some.
