Good answer!!! The "little worms in pork" he refers to is called "Trichinosis". If you cook the meat properly it isn't a problem.
It does not apply to privately raised or uninspected meat but for a long time now the USDA and the NPA has said that it is fine to eat pork on the pink side...since 2011 they have recommended an internal temp of 145* (med/med.-rare)...previously the recommended temp was 160*
