Oh boy, were here to ruin your day, again. How many times have you come home from a night of drinking and/or drugs looking to raid the fridge for the unhealthiest shit you can find? I may or may not have eaten a pack of bologna while I was high once, but thats neither here nor there.
If you arent heading home, youve headed to a pizza place, a bakery, or a hot dog stand. Were here to put the fear of God in you so you never, ever, make those drunk decisions again.
Today, were examining the hot dog, and just how fucking bad for you they are.
Lets start with what hot dogs are made of. Most of these wieners are made with a combination of poultry trimmings (that means feet, beaks, and all the neat organs including assholes and faces), water, corn syrup, and filler, which is usually made up of more shit you dont want to know about.
They may or may not help you get cancer. No, really. A research division of the World Health Organization stated that processed meats can lead to a higher risk for colorectal cancer because of how processed and unnatural that shit is thanks to some of the chemicals involved in cooking and processing the meat.
Theyre not that friendly to your waistline. A regular hot dog on a regular bun is going to set you back about 300 calories, depending on your toppings. I mean, you could do a lot worse and get something like a chili cheese burger or sausage, but wouldnt you be happier with some celery and hummus? You would.
If you must, check the label. If youre seriously craving a hot dog, at least go for an uncured, no nitrates, no antibiotics dog. There really is no such thing as a healthy hot dog and there are a total of zero health benefits, but something like Applegate Farms Uncured Beef Hot Dogs is going to be better for you in the long run than an Oscar Meyer Weinerregardless of how catchy that song is.
So , there you have it. We suggest you print this list and keep it in your purse for the next time youre stumbling around and craving wieners.
