" Too much of anything is bad". For me, it is alright to eat Lechon Baboy as long as you know how to discipline and limit yourself with the enough and right amount and of course by doing some physical activities in order to attain a balanced physical health.
Is Lechon really healthy?
We, Filipinos, are really a letchon-eater. From birthday parties, to fiestas, weddings, and a lot more. It seems like the party is lacking without lechon in the table. Do we know that Lechon can be bad in our health? Yes, we do. But it is really a tradition for us to eat Lechon since it is the usual "handa" even during folkloric times.
