Hot dogs are the favorite food of the majority of Americans and this fact is actually alarming.
The meal that has been brought by German immigrants has become very popular among children and around 7 billion hot dogs are consumed every season in the U.S only.
The usual hot dog is made from chicken, beef and pork meat but different animal remains are added during the process. This includes legs, claws, skin and fat. Numerous additives like corn syrup, salt and monosodium glutamate are also used in order to improve the flavor.
One of the most disgusting facts is that in the flavoring process the monosodium glutamate and carmine are derived from the shells of small bugs boiled in sodium carbonate and ammonia!
The additives that are used differ from country to country but are almost never listed on the labels so you can never know what comes together with your hot dog.
A research was conducted at the University of Hawaii about processed meats and the findings were catastrophic. It was concluded that processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by a staggering 67%! Additives like nitrites and nitrates that are contained in processed meat have been shown to raise the risk of developing pancreatic, bowel, bladder or stomach cancer.
According to our Institute for Cancer Research, one hot dog a day can increase the risk of colorectal cancer by 21%!
