Photo: Hot Dogs Cause Butt Cancer?
Photo of the Day
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine erected this billboard in Chicago to help people in the hot-dog capital reduce their colorectal cancer risk—no small task since 39 percent of Americans don’t even know what the colon is. Seriously. Although I’m guessing a much greater percentage don’t know what’s in a hot dog.
Besides mechanically separated meat, bones, connective tissue, and the stuff they put in instant hand warmers, hot dogs and other processed meats are chockfull of cancer-causing nitrates, which greatly increase the risk of deadly colorectal cancer.
Given the choice, I think I’d rather put down the bun and save my buns.
