According to Paul, Christians can eat whatever they want - even food that has been sacrificed, prayed over or offered up to/by the name of Pagan gods. Jesus however upheld the laws, he said the law should be upheld until the earth has disappeared...I think the earth is still here. So, I think we should still follow the laws, as did the disciples who knew, learned and taught with Jesus. Paul, who never knew Jesus came up with all the changing of the Good News sect of Judaism into Christianity, which mirrors paganism in more ways than one.

I think that way too 3giggle -- if you check the bible carefully, God gives Adam and eve the fruits and plants to eat, it isn't until after the flood that God gives Noah and his descendants permission to eat meat. So, I think when the earth is returned to the way it was meant to be after the final judgement that there will be no death -- and that includes not eating meat. But for now, God said we could.
OP, in the Old Testament, God said not to eat meat unless the hooves were split and it chewed its cud, and not to eat fish unless it had fins and gills. In the New Testament, Paul says that these laws no longer apply to Christians -- they never really applied to anyone but the Jews -- even Jews think this. But, if you look at it medically, nutritionally, health wise -- it is best not to eat Pork.
