Warning! Don’t let your kids eat hot dogs! Here is the reason why..


The perfect pink sausage, grilled, placed inside a hot bun, with pimpled cabbage, mustard, and ketchup. Ahhh.. wonderful and delicious childhood memories.

The Daily Health Post shared the findings of hot dog
consumption in studies conducted:


“Children who ate hot dogs once or more during the week were at a higher risk of getting brain cancer”.
