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

But as it turns out, and most likely we are not revealing anything new to you - hot dogs are not healthy for you.

According to LiveStrong, they are high in fat (and not the good kind), have high levels of cholesterol, contain large amounts of salt, and stay 'fresh' because of many preservatives.

It's no surprise that hot dogs aren't good for our waistlines - but what doctors have discovered they're doing to our kids is the truly scary thing.

Hot dogs are killing our children in ways we haven't even imagined - and we all deserve to know.

This meat product contains additives that may cause botulism, they extend the shelf life of the product and give it the pink color (otherwise they would be gray). We call these 'helpful' additives nitrites, and they are dangerous, harmful and sometimes even fatal. LiveStrong explains that nitrites are associated with an increase in the risk of getting cancer - with the risk being 9 times greater in children who consume more than 12 hot dogs per month.

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".

"Children of fathers who consumed more than 12 hot dogs a month before they were born had a higher risk of getting blood cancer".

"Children born to mothers who consumed hot dogs once or more during a week during pregnancy had a higher risk of developing brain tumors".

Picnics, barbecues, etc. - in all of them sausages play a central role in the menu. But their consumption is not innocent and much more dangerous than we thought.

Think hot dogs were born the way they look? Definately not! Before they get to their plate they go through a lot.

Different cuts of meat are ground in huge machines, then mixed with all kinds of starches, salt, flavorings and preservatives, then mixed in huge tanks.

It is enough to look at the label and see what ingredients are in the hot dogs. You will get shocked!

We may feel nostalgia associated with their taste, but unfortunately, there are many hidden things, much more than people realize. If you still choose to eat hot dogs and also let your children eat them, at least now you know and are familiar with the dangers.
