What the hell is wrong with people? Who thinks funding research into studies about health and hot dogs was a good idea? I mean we ALL know what hot dogs are made out of. No one even thinks for a second that there might be anything remotely healthy about a hot dog - ESPECIALLY if you eat one every day.
|NOT "healthy" food|
This reminds me of a few years ago when they came out with microwave popcorn will cause lung cancer. There was a man who ate TWO BAGS of microwave popcorn A DAY and when it would come out of the microwave he would inhale the toxic aroma before he'd ingest the "butter flavor" coated popcorn. After 5 years of this, he developed a rare form of lung cancer. DUH.
You would have to live under a rock to think that things like daily hot dogs, twice daily microwave popcorn, daily chocolate pudding, daily pizza and daily super sized McMeals aren't bad for your health. My four year old knows that.
Who funds these research projects? Isn't there something better you can do with your money? I hear Haiti and Japan could still use some help. Or you could spend your money on the school lunch program so they don't serve a variation of hot dog to my kid 2-3 times a week (mini corndogs is the same as a corndog, lunch lady).
What genius chooses who gets the funding? Hmmm...we've got money to spend, what should we spend it on? Pediatric cancers? Nah. Heart Disease. Eh. Erectile dysfunction? Possibly. The link between hot dogs and colon cancer? Yes! Let's do that one!
