According to one new research, children who often consume hot dogs (over a dozen a month), are 9 times more likely to develop leukemia. Leukemia is in fact a blood cancer where the blood-forming organs and the bone marrow produce increased numbers of abnormal and immature leukocytes. These suppress the normal blood cells production, leading to anemia and other different symptoms.
These effects are not “characteristic” for children. Fathers who, before conceiving, often ate hot dogs, have bigger % to pass cancer to their children. Pregnant women who didn’t pay attention and ate a hot dog are more likely to have children who will develop a brain tumor.

We can also find nitrates in vegetables that grow in fertilizers. Many of these vegetables come with their own compounds that fight nitrosamine production.
“Spinach, lettuce, beets, celery, cabbage and parsley are all naturally high in nitrates. The level of naturally occurring nitrites is determined by the plant’s genetics, age, and also the amount of nitrate in the soil where the crops were farmed. Due to increased use of nitrate fertilizers in the last century, these figures are high. But don’t stop eating these veggies! Many of them also contain vitamin C, naturally limiting the formation of the toxic nitrosamines.” – Fooducate

If you’re still not convinced that hot dogs are one of the worst ‘foods’ , all you have to do is take a look now at how they’re actually made.
