Good News for Meat Lovers: Most Ready-to-Eat Meat Products Contain Very Few Cancerous Compounds, Study Finds
ScienceDaily (Mar. 23, 2011) If given the choice between eating a hot dog or enjoying some rotisserie chicken, consider the hot dog.
That's because hot dogs, as well as pepperoni and deli meats, are relatively free of carcinogenic compounds, according to Kansas State University research. But it's a not-so-happy ending for bacon and rotisserie chicken -- especially chicken skin -- because both have higher levels of cancerous material.

There’s some good news.
Ralph Nader is probably choking on his spinach reading this.
Cracklings Recipe - take chicken skin, lay out flat on a baking sheet, sprinkle with lemon pepper or seasoning of your choice, broil until crispy, enjoy.
Of course, you'll die of a heart attack from so much sodium in those hot dogs long before you get cancer but whatever.
Eat more chocolate!
Hot-dogs ARE the world’s most perfect food!
Chicken skin?? Ya think??? She WAS 90.
There has been no definitive link between HCAs and cancer in humans anyway. Animals fed a diet with thousands of times the level that humans eat have gotten cancer, but those tests don’t always translate to human damage. So basically, I wouldn’t start munching the pepperoni just yet.
Egregious misuse of the word by a science writer.

I love hot dogs with chili and onions, but with mustard, ketchup and relish is good, too. There’s a great hot dog place in Worcester. Coney Island hot dogs. Yum.
Yech—who would ruin perfectly good bacon in a microwave? Now there’s one more reason not to cook it there.
I eat what I want, when I want and as much as I want. I don’t read labels and couldn’t care less what “researchers” say about the food I eat. Many “reseachers” are paid by companies who want you to use their product so they pay for “research” on their competition’s product.
PS: I love animals (fried, broiled, baked, stewed, BBQ’d etc)
I’m not that elaborate on how I prepare my dogs; I generally prefer yellow mustard and some relish, maybe a little sauerkraut too. But I also like my dogs either pan-fried or grilled on an open flame, which introduces some of those nasty carcinogens.
My roommate's mother made these for us.
Sometimes I cook the dogs in my deep fryer. Just for fun.
We cook our hots on the grill....can you spell....BAD NEWS
“Based on this research, HCA consumption can be reduced by not eating chicken skin,” he said.”
There goes the Schmaltz.
“I love hot dogs with chili and onions, but with mustard, ketchup and relish is good, too. Theres a great hot dog place in Worcester. Coney Island hot dogs. Yum.”
Try one with this:
Available at Hannaford and other fine retailers.
What, no ketchup?
This is the BEST STORY OF THE DAY--am downright giddy!! I have sustained from hot dogs for a long time now--cheat once or twice a year maybe, try to eat healthy!! Buy rotisserie chicken, do not eat the skin but have been rather skeptical lately on the juiciness of the meat while enjoying it.
Gone To Lunch!
That looks good! I love horseradish. :)
I wonder if this has to do with sodium content.
Packaged products have a ton of sodium.
Wow! That looks amazing!
Just when I was ready to release my new creation, the All American dog clad in bacon wrapped in charred chicken skin. This news is not good.
Potillo’s has the best hot dog and MAGNIFICENT Italian Beef. I am an addict. Love Chicago dogs, and get my fix at Portillo’s (live in Chicago burbs).
Lean fresh meat is a clear winner above anything. Whatever the particular “meat” is. The less processing has to be done to it, the less additives that are added to it, the better.
Nitrates as well as msg need to be avoided. Also, cured and prepared meats can come from wholly unhealthy animals. The antibiotics, hormones, and diseases of these beasts are not good to eat.
There is nothing wrong with organic, nitrate free hot dogs with nothing on the label that could be a euphemism for MSG, though. Read your labels carefully.
Honey, it’s the buns that are gonna kill ya. The rest of that stuff is fine!
Am coming out soon however!!
Naperville Portillos is where I used to go when there.
Yes, it will give you sweat beads on your scalp.LOL Also good on salad (just a dash) before tossing with another appropriate dressing and of course in place of mayo anywhere else.
Whew! That’s got to be some hot stuff! I like spicy. It makes me glow right across the middle of my face, and looks like a light sunburn. We have so many different kinds of hot sauce in our refrigerator door that there’s almost no room for anything else. :)
Example: Fried clams and fries. Fried clams and fries taste pretty good as you are sucking them down, but a few minutes later, you get a bloated feeling. Not good. Therefore, stay away from fried clams and fries.
It's always a trade off.
Look at the Sodium, Cholesterol and Fats content on all processed meats before choosing. The chicken has more Cholesterol, less fat, and the dog has more sodium, and skin can be pulled off of the chicken. Hmmm. If you take a cholesterol reducing drug, as I do, the cholesterol becomes a smaller concern.
Seriously, the more I learn and get "into" safeguarding my health, the more I realize how badly I screwed myself with poor food choices.
Horseradish kind of sneaks up on you. It’s not hot like peppers just gives you a nice “aromatic zing” so to speak. That’s why I like it.
Enjoy it if you get it.
I imagine what’s coming from Japan will hurt us more, and sooner than eating chicken skin, rotisserie or otherwise.
Bad news. Very bad news.
“Hershey (HSY) said this week it’s going to raise prices by 9.7%, a move that many people expect competitors to follow. The entire industry is facing huge price increases for raw ingredients — the cost of sugar has more than doubled in the past year — and can no longer absorb the higher expenses.”
Raise your prices Hershey!!! It matters not. I'll do without electricity and heat before I give up my chocolate!!

Bacon? FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS.

Denny’s has a limited time special going on featuring things that involve bacon... Bacon Meatloaf with a side of sauteed spinach with pico de gallo and bacon and a side of cole slaw.... Yum.
