Doctors advise that hot dogs should not be given to your children! Hot dogs are a favorite food for millions of people around world, especially in America , and even sold at sporting events and festivals.
Studies have shown that on July 4 alone each year, Americans spend more than 155 million hot dogs. That’s a pretty scary number.
Doctors warn the parents to stop giving children hot dogs, and there are a number of reasons why.
The new study has shown that children who consume hot dogs two to three times a week have a 9% a high risk of leukemia. Also, if the father has often ate hotdogs before conception, his child has higher risk of cancer.
In addition, women who are pregnant and like to eat hot dogs, should be aware that consuming more than one hot dog a week, there is a high risk that her child will get a brain tumor.
The reason lies in the nitrite additives, which are harmful effects of heavy consumption of hot dogs, these additives are added in the production of hot dog, in order to prevent botulism

So, if hotdog is still your favorite food, but can not completely avoid them, you should limit them or to consume only nitrites free meat.
