Why HotDogs Are Bad For Health



Every child loves hotdogs. Who doesn't? A very enjoyable food for children. However, things are changing and it has been discovered that hotdog isn't that fun anymore, since they cause CANCER.
How could hot dogs cause cancer?

Hot dogs contain nitrites which are used as preservatives, primarily to combat botulism. During the cooking process, nitrites combine with amines naturally present in meat to form carcinogenic compounds and have been associated with cancer of the oral cavity, urinary bladder, esophagus, stomach and brain.

A certain study shows that children who eat over 10 hotdogs every month could increase the risk of acquiring childhood leukemia nine times more than those who doesn't consume that much.
Hot dogs are extruded from a ground-up slurry of animal carcass, including fatty tissues and skins, animal feet, heads, and other “edible” slaughter by-products.

To make hot dogs safe and palatable, a mélange of binders, fillers, flavorings, and preservatives are added, including corn syrup, nitrates, MSG, and other synthetic chemicals.

Besides hotdogs, there are products that contains nitrites, including any cured meat you can find, such as fish and bacon. It may also surprise you to know that some vegetables also have nitrites, including celery, green lettuce and spinach. However, these vegetables doesn't cause cancer, because the veggies themselves fight cancer.



What you can do to prevent it?

If you are truly fond of hot dogs, you will be glad to know that not all hot dogs contain nitrites. Normally, the hot dog we mostly eat is the red one, but there are also brown ones which are considered to be nitrite-free. Though they are not as popular as the red one, it is still much safer and much healthier.
