Mitzvah #138 - Eating non-Kosher animals

One who eats meat or milk from an animal that does not have split hooves or does not chew its cud deserves 39 lashes by Bet Din.

Mother's milk is Kosher, however nursing is forbidden for anybody over the age of 5.

Honey is Kosher.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "These are the animals you may eat..." (Vayikra 11:4)

Human flesh is also forbidden, but not from this verse.
