The Dangerous Dog

The dangerous dog--it tempts you into thinking it is friendly, then attacks when you least expect it.  What kind of dog is that?  It might surprise you to learn that it is the hot dog.  Yes, that's right, hot dogs are dangerous to your health.  And not just hot dogs--ham, bacon, sausage, too.  Research shows a link between cured meat products and pancreatic cancer.  (Journal of the National Cancer Institute).  Researchers seem unsure if it is the excess salt or the carcinogenic compounds used in processed meat preparation that is the culprit.  Either way, there is a lot of evidence to support eliminating these meats from your diet.
