PorkFilter: Is there anything medically wrong with eating large amounts of pork, sometimes irregularly prepared?

I'm a college student, and the only meat I can afford is pork (shoulder, loin end, etc.) I like meat, so I end up eating it almost every day. I don't get tired of it because I'm a pretty good cook and can use different sauces and such. I like my pork juicy, so sometimes I'll find that my chop is pinkish near the bone area.
I haven't experienced any problems, (other than rustling from my Jewish ancestors rolling in their graves) so I'm tempted to conclude it's okay. My momma always said to cook pork very thoroughly, though. Is this habit dangerous?
