In America,hot dogsare the most popular fast food. They were brought in our country by German immigrants. Around 7 billion of hot dogs are consumed in the summer, just in America. Despite the fact that they are very popular, this delicious junk food can really be very harmful to our health.
Regularly hot dogs are made from beef, pork and chicken meat, however the process of production involves adding animal remains such as legs, claws, fat and skin. Additives such as salt,monosodium glutamate, corn syrup and many others are added so that they improve the flavor, which is different in every country. The most awful thing about those flavors is that carmine flavor and monosodium glutamate are derived from the shells of some tiny bugs that are boiled in ammonia and in sodium carbonate!
Since the additives are not written on the labels, you can never be sure which are used for hot dogs.
The University of Hawaii conducted research, according to which the risk of pancreatic cancer was increased by up to 67%, caused by processed meat.This meat practically always has additives like nitrites and nitrates, unsafe substances that have been proven to increase the risk of pancreatic, bladder, bowel and stomach cancer. The American Institute for Cancer Research assures that only one hot dog a day might increase the risk of colorectal cancer by 21%!
