Keep it up, militant vegans, your every stupid act removes any need for rational thinkers to point out the level of knowledge that goes into your "causes."

I cannot make a fool of another, but I can certainly point out when he or she is making a fool of him/herself.

"...processed meats are linked to colon cancer"

Depends on what you ... oh, never mind.

Didn't I read last week that vegetarians have weaker bones than people that eat meat? Maybe we should have warning labels on vegetables.

I love the line that vegans complaining about meat is like the Amish complaining about gas prices. Bravo!

I'll allow their warning label, as long as the hot dog industry also puts the advisory label that I want on the package:

"NOT TO BE EATEN WITH KETCHUP"

How many of these vegan women have a bumper sticker that says, "KEEP YOUR LAWS OFF MY BODY"?

Seriously?! I think lawsuits are getting a bit out of hand these days. People need to quit their [email protected] over meaningless topics.

Hey angry vegan haters on this thread-isn't this America where we can all have our own ideas?
This too shall pass...
by the way, you can get hotdogs w/o nitrates from Trader Joes, Whole Foods etc; this lawsuit may just push the larger companies to remove the nitrates-not a bad thing for anyone.

Yes, this is America where we can all express our own ideas.

And we're expressing ours about vegans and frivolous lawsuits.

Don't like it? Read something else.

The fact that eating processed meats--presumably including fast-food burgers and deli sandwiches--once a day leads to such a dramatic increase in risk is worrisome. It's obviously very common. I have to question the data on this one... maybe if only for conscience sake.

Oh yes, it's the Presidents fault that hot dogs cause cancer. It's the presidents fault that people are smart and don't eat poisonous food. Florida Jim, you are obviously a bit "touched" in the head. Get over it. You president was the biggest mistake this country has made in a long time. He almost destroyed us. You lost, and your party is getting what it deserves... cancerous hot dogs.

You fat pigs posting on here are too stupid to support people who want to warn you about the dangers of eating hot dogs. Do you know what is in a "hot dog". I was a food scientist for 18 years, and yes, several of the chemicals in a hot dog cause cancer. That is not eve a debate. They, cause, cancer. The amount of terrible substances in the everyday processed foods that Americans shove down their ever expanding guts is shocking, yet so many of you are offended. What was the cancer rate in 1900? What is the cancer rate in 2009? Drugs keep us alive, since our food is certainly trying to kill us. A Chicken McNugget, the finest of all frankenfoods, contains a derivative of butane. That's lighter fluid folks. 5 grams of that very chemical in the McNugget will kill you. Will, not might. Keep eating folks.
Golly, thanks scientist man!

Tell me, how many hot dogs does it take to cause cancer?

There is a lettuce recall because of salmonella in lettuce from Tanimura & Antle Inc. I think the ones who want a warning label on hot dogs should be made to write warning labels on the lettuce with salmonella. They can then eat that affected lettuce. It would do them good and would make hot dog eaters feel better.

What this looks like is, yet another "activist" group attempting to use the law to bully the rest of us into seeing things there way.

It's a shame that, when they lose, they can't be made to pay both court costs and the legal defense costs of the people they're suing.

It's just time that legal-system bullies like this were made to pay the costs they seek to impose on others, instead of having defense costs endlessly passed on to the rest of us.

A vegan should have no problem with hot dogs as their is no meat in them, unles a rat runs into the grinder, just sawdust, oatmeal, corn flakes, and soy beans. What hapens when you boil meat, it shrinks. What hapens when you boil sawdust, oatmeal, corn flakes, and soy beans, they swell up.

How about a lawsuit demanding that cities put a warning sign on every street corner stating "WARNING: Stepping off this curb could get your a** killed by a bus!"

Have you noticed that too? Their IQ must be correlated to unattractive they are. Now it all makes sense.
