What would a baseball game in the stands without a hot dog to enjoy between innings? According to the medical community, hot dogs, while they taste great, are not great for your overall health. And certainly not for your brain in particular. Hot dogs are the kings of processed meats. Processed meats are loaded with horrible additives like preservatives, an abundance of salt and sugar, and even dyes. Your taste buds might fancy a hot dog with relish, but your brain does not. Eating hot dogs and other processed meats are associated with an increased risk for brain tumors. The nitrites contained in hot dogs are also linked to various types of cancers like leukemia. It’s a good idea to eliminate this food from your diet.
