INDIANAPOLIS (WFLX) - Eating hots dogs can be just as bad as smoking cigarettes. That's according to a physicians group in Indianapolis.
Now, they are taking drastic steps to get the word out putting up a billboard showing hot dogs sticking out of a cigarette pack. The billboard reads: "Warning: hot dogs can wreck your health".
According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, just one 50-gram serving of processed meat (about the amount in one hot dog) consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer, on average, by 21 percent.
