This Is One of The Biggest Cancer Causing Foods- Stop Eating It!
The hot dog is definitely one of the most common eaten foods, and probably you belong to the group of people who consume it regularly without knowing that hot dog contains extremely harmful substances.
This food is considered as one of the most popular. In the 19th century,
German immigrants introduce hot dogs in America and since then this food gained high popularity.
Every summer in America, more than 7 billion hot dogs are consumed. However, it is considered that hot dogs can cause damage to your overall health.
Actually, sausages do not have any organic nutrients in their content and are highly processed food without any nutritional value. Factories which have robotized machines produce these hot dogs, and they can even produce more than 300.000 hot dogs a year.
Hot dogs consist of beef, pork meat, and chicken.
But, however, “edible” steak or pork leftovers are often used in their preparation, meaning that hot dogs have a high content of fatty tissue, feet, hands, and skin.
This is the process of its preparation: The leftovers are combined so a thick paste could be created.
Then, the producers add many additives including corn syrup, salt, nitrites, and MSG (monosodium glutamate) so they can refine the taste.
The area where the hot dogs are produced determines the number of additives because there are different tastes at people from different areas. Carmine and monosodium glutamate are produced by the dye from the shells of beetles which afterwards are boiled in sodium carbonate.
USDA (U.S Department of Agriculture does not ask the producers to write all additives on the label, so the consumers are rarely aware of the ingredients contained in the sausages.
The Hawaiian University conducted a study which proved that all those processed meats can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67%.
Additionally, nitrates and nitrites are the most harmful additives contained in hot dogs. Even the organic hot dogs have a high content of nitrite.
When they are exposed to high temperature, they can combine with amines, and result in nitrosamines, known as potential cancer-causing chemicals. They are related to bladder, pancreas, stomach, and colon cancer.
According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, eating only 1 hot dog a day can increase the chance of developing colorectal cancer even by 21%. Really shockingly, right?
