Hot dogs are one of the most detrimental health foods for its high content of sodium and saturated fats.


These type of products are manufactured with cuts and leftovers of animals rich in fats, in addition to containing chemical additives that are what increase their useful life and make them always look fresh.

These compounds are the ones that are on alert regarding health, since, according to several investigations, they can have a negative effect on the organism when they are included in a habitual way in the diet.

Well, it turns out that for the little ones the effects can be quite terrifying, causing child cancer. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.

The studies carried out have to do with the relationship between the intake of certain foods and the risk of having leukemia in children from birth to 10 years of age.


A study revealed that kids who eat more than 12 sausages during a month have 9 times more than the normal risk of developing the so-called childhood leukemia.

There is a great risk of suffering from childhood leukemia also for those children whose parents consume 12 sausages or more each month.

Scientists carefully studied cases of childhood cancer in Denver and were able to find that children born to mothers who have eaten sausages more than twice a week during pregnancy, would have about double the risk of developing brain tumors.

Children who ate sausages once or more times a week also had a higher chance of developing brain cancer.

While a hot dog is usually a food chosen by parents for its practicality at the time of consumption, eating them more than once from the hurry, it is important to be aware that sausages are not at all nutritious for young people who are in constant growth and development.

Although it may seem difficult, it is only a matter of prioritizing health and trying to carry out the typical meals that have sausages with other foods, such as sandwiches, pies or pizzas, etc. replacing cold meats with lean meats and adding lots of vegetables to those menus.


The children get to know the food through the parents, if they are poorly fed and have bad habits, the children will naturally only know that and will acquire these foods as daily to their diet.

Devote the necessary time to the feeding of your family, because the consequences usually occur in the long term and can be very severe. Women should take special care on the foods their eating to avoid the risk of cancer.
