Washington (HealthKnowItAll) – A non-profit organization has started a campaign against the American favorite at baseball parks around the country, the hot dog.

The non-profit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has launched a major campaign to alert the entire U.S. about the dangers of consuming hot dogs.

Hot dogs are consumed at rapid rates across the U.S., especially during the summer when there are BBQs taking place in just about every neighborhood on a weekly basis.

What the group wants consumers to know though is that hot dogs are very dangerous to your health.

The campaign aims to raise awareness around the fact that hot dogs can result in an increased risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other health complications.

The message rings loud and clear on a billboard at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway which reads, “Warning: Hot dogs can wreck your health.”

Hot dogs are very similar to consuming processed meat, according to the group as well as medical research.

Consuming processed meat can cause health problems, as a hot dog contains roughly 50-grams of the meat on average.

By eating processed meat, you are greatly increasing your risk of developing the diseases above, according to the non-profit group.
