Warning: WHO Says Try To Avoid This Cancer-Causing Food

Cancer is a dangerous disease in which certain cells in our body grow in an uncontrolled way. It is considered as one of the world’s most serious illnesses that can kill more people more than any other diseases in the world.

This is why it is very important for all of us to know which food caused the cancer.

According to the report of World Health Organization’s cancer agency, the risk of developing cancer from eating processed meat remains small but rises with the amount consumed. Among them, apparently, are hot dogs.

Hot dogs are among the most popular food all over the world. However, according to World Health Organization’s cancer agency, hot dogs are among the most processed food that can caused cancer.

Hot dog is one of the most common processed meats consumed in the United States. Processed meat was defined as meat transformed through salting, curing, fermentation, smoking or other processed to enhance the flavor and improved the preservation.

It is important that we limit our consumption of hot dogs because they contain harmful substances.

International Agency for Cancer Research linked the consumption of processed meat  to colorectal, pancreatic and prostate cancer.

Based on the studies, read meat that refers to all types of mammalian muscle meat, such as beef, veal, pork lamb, mutton, horse and even goat was given a carcinogen label.

For the red meat, the data pointed  to associations with colorectal, pancreatic and prostate cancers.

Despite its delicious tastes, and many children live on hot dogs at home, doctors are now telling parents one crucial message, “STOP FEEDING YOUR KIDS HOT DOGS!”

Why hot dogs are dangerous?

It has to do with nitrates that are used to preserve meat so that it has a longer shelf life.

According to Fooducate, Nitrates can also be found in vegetables that are grown in fertilizers.

What to do?

The best thing to do is to reduce or stop eating processed meat. Even buying organic does not guarantees safe food.

If your not convinced just take a look how hot dogs are made.
