I lived in a grand total of 8 years in India, and had to eat every day to live ?? right ??
I refrained from Pork, Beef etc. and stuck to Chicken, Fish and mutton, around the place I lived, or in any place where I got home cooked food. And mostly in the South ..
For food in 'road side' / 'restaurant' / and the like, I stuck to Veg food, since I had some serious fear of how the meat is cooked .. of course, an occasional Prata and Chicken Kurma goes well, and when you are really dying for food, and hunger overrides everything .. and even lousy food tastes nice after spending 20 hours or more in a train .. or bus ..
Since you asked, let me put it this way .. a relative of mine ended up with tape worm - possibly by contaminated Pork or Beef, .. and the doctors were like "oh, a normal tape worm case" even though the patient was having seizures and ended up in Coma .. if not for the fact that people can get tape worm from eating meat, that the doctors there were so unimpressed with a tapeworm infected did give a bit of scare .. and a bit more .. till I had nightmares of touching pork and beef for a while ..
