Is it unhealthy to eat pork?

Question on @Quora: Is it unhealthy to eat pork? Is it? – Xochielt Sanchez

Like bacon, ham, prosciutto, salami, etc.
My friend was raised to believe that it's bad to eat pork in her religion (Seventh Day Adventism), but now that she isn't strictly part of that faith (she now considers herself a Christian more than an Adventist) she still doesn't eat pork because she believes is unhealthy anyway. Is there any evidence for pork being unhealthy for consumption as compared to beef, lamb, or other meats?
