Eating hot dogs is as American as baseball, apple pie and diabetes. And according to a controversial new report from the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine, they might be as bad for your health as smoking cigarettes.
The claim, of course, is being made by a nonprofit group that thinks everyone should be living on a vegan diet. While it’s a given that hot dogs are bad for you, I think it might be a bit of a stretch to say that they’re as bad for you as smoking. Just keep it under a pack a day.
