Yes, it's how a lot of urban legends get started. See the above about sugar and cancer.



None of us are Oncologists.




Oncologists will tell you there are ways of Lowering your Cancer Risk.


No one is ever guaranteed a free pass but the road to a Lower Risk is well supported by medical evidence


Low Sugar Intake and Clean Eating results in fewer brushes with the Big C.


I have two friends, both extremely fit and health conscious women, both got cancer age 55 with zero risk factors


except one


both drink white wine


white wine is LOADED with sugar and sulphites and all sorts of ugly numbers.

A glass of white wine has about 1.4 grams of sugar; that's hardly "loaded". FWIW, I haven't seen any research linking sulfites (most of which are naturally occurring in wine anyway) to cancer.

Smart dogs are tofu hot dogs. With some slaw, onions, siracha they taste the same as a hot dog to me. But yeah, my kids dont really eat hot dogs except at bbq parties. My oldest wants hotdogs and burgers for her birthday party. I will probably get thumanns or kosher brand. Everything in moderation.

10 hotdogs per month? Who goes to that many ballgames?

I haven't eaten a hot dog for about 3 years now.

Didn't need a doctor (the only doctor I have is a dermatologist by the way) to inform me that grade Q mystery meat was bad for my health.

Actually, I've cut out a heck of a lot of meat consumption and get a lot of my protein from nuts now. Why would I want to eat from animals who don't get much exercise (thus not very lean) and are fed not from natural grasses, but are instead fed from GMO surplus crops and injected with toxic growth hormones?

Why? Why would anyone want that?

Why would you put mystery meat in your hotdogs? It surprises me the way people cook.

ER docs and interns live on hot dogs to get through the 24+ hour shifts. At least, every one I ever knew did.
