Children should no longer be fed hot dogs, according to doctors. This is particularly difficult since hot dogs are one of the most popular dishes in the United States and can be found anywhere.

According to studies, Americans eat more than 150 million hot dogs on the 4th of July alone. Almost every athletic event and festival offers a variety of hot dog options. Doctors often advise avoiding serving kids hot dogs for various health concerns.

According to a study, children who eat more than a dozen hot dogs monthly are nine percent more likely to acquire leukemia. It has also been found that a father’s regular consumption of hot dogs before becoming a parent raises the child’s cancer risk. The chance of a brain tumor in a kid is increased if the mother consumes more than one hot dog each week while she is pregnant.

Just how deadly are those damn hot dogs?

To avoid botulism, nitrite additives are added to hot dogs. This causes all of these problems. N-nitroso, a cancer-causing chemical, is formed when cooking nitrates are combined with amines. If you can’t live without hot dogs, restrict your consumption or look for nitrite-free varieties.
