Hot dogs are one of the favorite and most consumed food in the world, according to the recent studies. The statistic shows that people from U.S. are the biggest consumers of hot dogs.
Probably you have heard that hot dogs are not good for our health. They are the leading cancer causing fast food!
For the first time hot dogs areВ introduced by the German Immigrants in the 19th century. They gained their popularity very fast, so now theyВ enjoy an iconic status.
It is well known that every processed meetВ can cause cancer, even the red meat too. This was already stated fromВ the World Health Organization (WHO).
Hot dogs are mixture ofВ pork, beef and chicken, leftover foods from cutting steaks or pork chops and В‘edibleВ’ slaughter by-products, such as animal feet and heads, fatty tissue and skins.
When the mixture of all these ingredients are done, someВ additives areВ added, such asВ corn syrup, nitrates, large salt quantities, and other chemicals.
Nitrates and nitrites are the most harmful substances which are added in hot dogs.В They blend with the amines on the high temperature and the final results are nitrosamines.
They are associated with four types of cancer:
- Bladder cancer
- Colon cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
Only one hot dog per day increases the riskВ of colorectal cancer for over 21%, according toВ The American Institute for Cancer Research.
Our suggestions are to stop eating hot dogs or any kind of processed meet. Instead of that, you should take natural food which is rich in vitamin C, such asВ citrus fruits and exotic berries. They prevents theВ formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines.
