Halacha - kosher
Submitted by ziva aronova  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

1) Because G-d told us to at Mount Sinai over 3000 years ago.

2) It is essential for the spiritual health of a Jew, we don't understand exactly how or why.

3) While there technically is a very specific difference, today the word "glatt" is used as a general term to mean the food conforms to the highest standards of Kosher.
