Doctors are putting parents on alert all over the country with one simple message:
Stop feeding your kids hot dogs!
Hot dogs are universal favorite, there’s no doubt about it.
|That hot dog meal looks delish, but is it worth eating?|
But according to new research, kids who consume more than a dozen hot dogs per month are nine times more likely to develop childhood leukemia.
Additionally, mothers who eat one hot dog per week during pregnancy increases their child’s likeliness of developing brain tumors later on in life.
Equally, a father who often ate hot dogs before conceiving a child also imparts a high likeliness of cancer to his child.
The problem? Nitrite additives.
|Think twice before dumping that food into your mouth.|
During the process of cooking the ‘dog, nitrates combine with amines that are naturally present in the meat to form N-nitroso, which is a seriously carcinogenic compound.
If you crave for hot dogs, look for nitrite-free meats or limit the amount of hot dogs you and your family eat.
You can also request that supermarkets begin carrying nitrite-free hot dogs exclusively and lobby your local school board to ditch hot dogs that contain nitrites.
So, do you still want hot dogs?
