Eating a lot of hot dogs, beef jerky, salami and other processed meats could do more than just add a few extra pounds — it could cause a serious mental condition called mania.

That’s according to a new study from scientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine published July 18 (National Hot Dog Day) in the journal Molecular Psychiatry.

The study found a link between consumption of nitrates, which are chemicals used to cure and process meat snacks, and episodes of mania, “a serious neuropsychiatric condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality.”

Sorry, this is just not possible. Bacon & hot dogs are one of the basic food groups.

Some of the chemicals in them are but not the core products.

Cocoa Puffs can also cause adverse mental effects.

I turn into a maniac when there’s no bacon in the house, so they have a point.

How can this be?

Costco dropped the Polish Dog and kept the hot dog, it must be good for you!

Manic is not so bad, it's the other half of manic-depressive that's the problem.

“Study: Bacon, hot dogs, bad for mental health”

Even for women?!

Lately, these “studies” have all shown how bad meat (or veggies) are for evil men.

Guess they found out both men and women Trump supporters eat hot dogs and bacon.

My wife is an excellent nurse, and she makes sure that I don't turn into a maniac. She buys the following from Costco and keeps an opened package in our refrigerator in case either of us has signs of bacon withdrawal.

This great product is used on salads, in soups, in omelets, and just as a handful of goodness to prevent bacon withdrawal.

I’d wager that Scott Berson (author) is a vegetarian/vegan.

He may be right though, cause I’m *crazy* about bacon, and hotdogs.

Like lawyers, there are too many journalists...therefore they have to sit and think on minutia (chasing ambulances) to have something to write about.

You need to stop quoting headlines in Orkian or whatever language that is.

It makes no sense at all.

Just gobbledygook.

The public schools are big media do more harm to people’s mental (and spiritual) health than frankfurters or bacon can ever do.

There might be some truth to this article because I'm crazy about bacon and hot dogs!
