A Different Kind Of Cancer Stick

July 22nd, 2009

The Cancer Project, a Washington DC based advocacy group, is suing on behalf of three New Jersey residents to get hot dog manufacturers to place warning labels on their products to inform consumers about the risks of eating hot dogs and colorectal cancer.   Their site states that eating “one hot dog daily increases our risk of colorectal cancer, on average, by 21 percent.”

Personally, I think most people know eating processed meat is bad for them, they just don’t care.  They eat whatever they want with purposeful disregard for their well-being and, unfortunately, people will have no issues giving their kids the same.  Warning labels won’t change a thing.
