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.
