According to The Benefits of Laughing Pig Oil, an Indonesian language article, lard is very healthy. The article is spreading through many social groups. It seems that the article spreads well among Chinese Indonesians because they eat pork, while their fellow Muslims do not.
So pork is one of the things that "bind" Chinese together in Indonesia.
Some Muslims are angry because the article contains rumors that vaccines use pork as one of the ingredients. They argued that it makes many Muslims avoid vaccines and that that's then dangerous for health (this one, is a very reasonable concern).
It spreads among Chinese in Indonesia that lard is good for health. It is claimed to reduce heart disease, and many other things.
I tried to find an English version of the claim but can't find any.
Are the claims made in that article true? Does lard have health benefits?
