Maybe it's the actual amount of lysine, not the ratio.

In Response To: Re: Pork has an unfavorable lysine/arginine ratio. IT DOES??? (Julie)

Looking closer at the chart, pork appears to be quite a bit lower than
turkey in isoleucine,
lysine, arginine, aspartic acid, and glutamic acid. I don't know how
it compares to beef or lamb, or so on, but maybe it is just the lowest
lysine meat, and is therefore not as good as the others as a
source of lysine. And maybe that's why pigs get viruses, and the
viruses are what makes pork "unclean." Or maybe it is a whole different
issue, and the lysine is a red herring. I wouldn't question the accuracy
of the chart, though.
