No, the incidence in the U.S.A. is very low...that was a worldwide number & more of the cases are in underdeveloped countries. The U.S., like most first-world countries has protections in place. There is not an "immunity" you can develop against worms, so that theory is bogus. As former President Reagan said, "Trust but verify". I verify I won't get trichinosis by cooking pork. It's not communicable, so every one else can do what they want. There's a reason many religions come down against eating pork. They may not have known how disease was happening, but they knew to avoid pork and all would be well. BTW, some wild game is also susceptible to trichinosis...nasty stuff.
