it contains cancer. now they tell me !!!!


They are as American as Baseball and Apple Pie. But a group known as the 'Cancer Project' is targeting hot dogs. They've put up billboards near baseball stadiums, calling hot dogs a threat to kill you because of the health risk of processed meats. They want MLB stadiums to put warning labels on the hot dogs, so that people know the risk. The National Pork Board says its an effort to scare consumers

Ceci Snyder, Asst. Vice President of Consumer Marketing for the National Pork Board, sent NewsChannel 5 the following statement shortly after this story originally aired:

"This billboard is clearly an attempt by animal activists to scare consumers and make an extreme statement that is untrue and challenged by many mainstream health experts. Health professionals understand that alcohol, smoking, obesity and lack of physical activity are the fundamental causes of many cancers."

they also want label warnings in stores or anywhere just like cigarette warning labels. so. what's on your grill ???? ill take the hot dog with the cigarette in it !!!!!!!!!!!!

That's what the propaganda was designed to do and that's exactly who they were targeting.

Why do Polish Sausages get a pass here? So Hot Dogs cause cancer but Sausages are OK? I think Hot Dogs are getting an unfair shake here. What about processed chicken nuggets? This is bull shit!!!

The only thing I can see that all the things that cause cancer have in common is laboratory mice; ergo, I think laboratory mice cause cancer.

what did you fall on?


and if you smoke the hotdog, would it have a mind altering affect?


also, what about the meat in the hot dog, if i eat all chicken, or beef, or turkey would that make a difference on how fast i get cancer, or a tofu dog, would that to have an adverse affect?

just some food for thought...

I only eat Kosher dogs and they must be burnt on the grill. Truth is would rather have a burger, brat, or chicken. Actually, I'll just take 3 ears of corn on the cob. Thank you!
