So, Memorial Day Weekend just past, the unofficial kick-off of Summer! What does that mean to most Americans?…BARBECUE TIME! The most popular food for barbecuing, without question, is the almighty HOT DOG! They are without a doubt delicious, which leads people in the US to eat approximately 7 billion hot dogs, in the summertime alone! Hot dogs are a processed meat, and as with all processed meats, they are unhealthy. I hate to burst your bubble, but as you will hear in the video you are about to watch below, EATING HOT DOGS PUTS YOUR HEALTH IN SERIOUS DANGER!
Although, some hot dog sausages may not be as unhealthy as others, by and large these mixtures of pork, beef and chicken meat also contain fillers, additives and preservatives. Most of the cheaper brands use parts of animals that aren’t “choice”, which includes legs, claws and fat. The additives are unhealthy…large amounts of salt, monosodium glutamate, corn syrup and some use a substance known as CARMINE. Carmine is made of powdered insect bodies that are boiled in a sodium carbonate solution or ammonia!
I haven’t even gotten to the worst part yet, if you can believe it?! Hot dogs contain CANCER-CAUSING NITRITES, which is also found in other processed meat. According to research done at the University of Hawaii these Nitrites raise your chances of developing PANCREATIC CANCER by 67%!! This is nothing to be scoffed at!
There are many other delicious and healthy things that can be barbecued, and traditions should be enjoyed, but not at the risk of your’s and your family’s health! Check out the video which makes this message quite clear and so important.
