    why is it that I get sick eating pork chops or sausage but not on ham ?????
    rohvannyn responded:
    Are you nauseated by it, in particular, or is it another kind of sickeness? That's a good question you have. If it was just sausage for example, I would have said it was because of the additives. Is there a difference in the cooking method? Like, you bake the ham but you fry the sausage and pork chops? Then it could be the cooking oil. Also, it could be the fat content in the chops and sausage that is making you feel sick.
