I read this after ordering two hot dogs with mustard at a kosher deli. I tried to return the hot dogs, but the jerks at the deli said I couldn't because the hot dogs have mustard on them and you can't return hot dogs with mustard on them. I've been trying to reason with them for the past three hours, but they won't refund my $4.50. I may not get my money back, but at least I won't get cancer.

When I was a kid someone told me hotdogs were made out of porcupines. Didn't eat another hotdog for 20 years.

Ask the people at John Morrell, they'll tell you hotdogs are perfectly healthy. Too much salt will kill you; not enough salt will kill you! Coffee is not good for you; coffee contains antioxidants. Everybody is going to die. The oldest human on earth ate hotdogs, salt, drank coffee, smoked cigarettes, drank like a fish. There are reports of infants dieing of cancer that never ate a hotdog in their lives. The bible says, "It rains on the just and the unjust alike." It also says, "All things in moderation." ALL THINGS. I heard on the news the other day that a man got hit by a train and survived, I thought THAT would kill you? You decide!!!

this so called cancer project is exagerating about prossed meat can increase the chances of getting cancer by 21%. its like how some people thought that microwaves and cellphone towers can cause cancer. it can but you must stand next to a cellphone for years and years nonstop. in short HOT DOGS WONT INCREASE THE CHANCES OF GETTING CANCER BY 21% I say by earting processed meat increases the chances by like 0.5 percent.
