A new study from the British Journal of Cancer found that processed meats, including hot dogs (which, you could argue isn’t really meat at all) increase the risk of pancreatic cancer. And apparently the more you eat, the greater the risk.
I find this news terribly disappointing. For the most part, I’m a vegetarian. But my one exception (in addition to fish and shrimp) is hot dogs–especially the ones from Costco.
