THIS IS HOW HOT DOGS ARE MADE FOR THE MOST PART VVVVV

Besides that fact, they are rendered “safe” with massive amounts of nitrates.  Which is why there is a direct correlation between children under a certain age eating hot dogs and instances of leukemia.

 

Nitrates preserve the fleshy look of fruit and meat, but in my opinion they are worse than sulfites, which can be naturally occuring.  If it can be helped no preservatives should be eaten unless they are natural preservatives like vitamin C or acetic acid or something to that effect.

This is not to say that all hot dogs are bad for you or all lunch meats, you just have to be an observant shopper.  Hebrew Nationals are decent for the most part.  It is the cheap dogs and the ones at the ball parks, fast food,  and vending stations you have to be concerned about.    Don’t get anything with nitrates or nitrites.  The government isn’t going to protect you from itself, so you have to take personal responsibility and protect your health from the government.
