Children Who Eat This Food Have More Chance To Get Leukemia!

All doctors, scientists and experts around the world are agreeing at one thing, DO NOT give hot dogs to your children.

While hot dogs are one of a favorite food in USA and it is estimated that Americans eat about 155 million hot dogs on Independence Day alone, which is on the fourth of July; that is quite a lot.

According to one new study, the children who eat more than a ten hot dogs in a month are 9 times more likely to get leukemia.

Leukemia is a blood cancer where the bone marrow and other blood-forming organs produce increased numbers of immature or abnormal leukocytes. These suppress the production of normal blood cells, leading to anemia and other symptoms.

If the father has frequently eaten hotdogs before conceiving, his child has an increased risk of cancer.

The reason why hot dogs are cancerous because they contain nitrates additives which are added to the hot dogs, usually to fight botulism.

During the process of cooking the ‘dog, nitrates combine with amines that are naturally present in the meat to form N-nitrous, which is a seriously carcinogenic compound.

According to Fooducate, nitrates also do the following:

They ward off against Clostridium botulinum, the bacteria responsible for botulism, which is a dangerous disease that causes respiratory and muscular paralysis.

They maintain the pinkish meat coloration. Without them, the meat would appear grayish.

They add a characteristic flavor.

Therefore, if hot dogs are just your favorite food and you cannot completely avoid them, you should definitely look for nitrite-free meats or limit the amount of hot dogs you and your family eat.

There is also evidence that nitrites may be associated with brain and thyroid cancers, but a causal link has not been established.
