Interesting wikipedia article on the group who is behind this latest attempt at reducing our liberty: Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

5% of their members are physicians.

Cato has an interesting piece on the PCRM: Fat City for Trial Lawyers | Robert A. Levy | Cato Institute: Daily Commentary

"This fall, Northeastern University law professor Richard Daynard is holding a strategy session for nearly 100 lawyers interested in suing "Big Food." There's not much question what Daynard will be promoting: another shakedown without any concern for personal accountability, sanctioned by a nanny state with an insatiable appetite for social engineering."

Haven't we suffered enough of this crap yet as a society?

One would think so but, we have way too many wamby-pamby imbiciles in this country that have no concept of personal responsibility. Everything is someone elses fault. "Well, I wouldnt have bought it and become fat if the advertisements werent so mesmerizing." You know what I would LOVE to see!??!?! A judge with a set of huge brass ones and simply laugh in their faces if they ever try to bring this to trial.

Oh please the cancer link to nitrates has been public for decades, the ocassional hot dog, bacon etc is not going to kill you. It's not a food you would eat every day, if I have 2 hotdogs a year it's a lot..it comes down to PERSONAL responsibility

truth be told we are exposed daily to so many cancer causing agents we might as well live in a bubble if we are going to worry about them all

I love the occasional hot dog and street vendor. Hope it doesn't become extinct.

So, hypothetically, would you stop eating them if they were labeled?

Some kids eat hot dogs every day. Maybe their parents should know?

Not saying I'm for a label. I know there is nitrates in there and I try to avoid nitrates whenever possible.

No not at all

I'm sure their parents already know it's one of two things..laziness on the parents or it may just be all they can afford at present

There's nitrates in red wine as well and I'm certainly not giving that up..lol
