Now tell that to my partner's mother. She cooks a pork loin no salt no seasonings, until it is as dry as cardboard. Then takes it out of the oven and lets it set until it is lukewarm, then serves it along with a bunch of lukewarm sides. She does the same at thanksgiving, with turkey. I hate eating there!

That's what I thought. They weren't cooking it to high temps for surface bacteria... their methods (which worked) for thawing frozen turkeys was testament to that, they were cooking it to kill the worm larvae, or cyst, in the meat.

My sister eats everything well done. It's just the way it is, I don't fault her for it. She tends to like casseroles and such, rather than the bare piece of chicken or whatever.
I don't imagine her methods of cooking pork will change and neither will mine
