Consuming Hot Dogs Can Be Harmful to Your Health

*** begin quote ***

Multiple studies have determined that consumption of hot dogs can be a risk factor for childhood cancer.

Peters et al studied the relationship between the intake of certain foods and the risk of leukemia in children from birth to age 10 in Los Angeles County between 1980 and 1987. The study found that children who ate more than twelve hot dogs per month had nine times the normal risk of developing childhood leukemia.

I love bacon and I ate hot dogs.

Remember that old quote that “Swift once bragged that his slaughterhouses had become so sophisticated that they used “everything but the squeal.”

Since I’ve retired, probably starting back when I became “old” somehow, and started dating a pescatarian, I’ve been working on my diet. This story about nitrites didn’t surprise me. 

Thanks to Weekly Videos by Michael Greger, M.D. I knew that cured meats — like bacon, ham and hot dogs — were killers and why.

That’s not to say I don’t fall off the wagon with bacon or hot dogs or other meats.

But maybe the sauerkraut on the hot dog helps?

Boy, I miss them.

However, if I want to live to a 1,000, bye bye everything but fruit, nuts, and plants. 

Laff, when I’m diagnosed as terminal, BOY! am I going to enjoy that time.


Till then, no fun eating.

Is Cancer Being Cured Right Before Our Eyes?
Cancer Center In Japan Reports Startling Remissions Using Vitamin & Immunotherapy Regimen
by Bill Sardi

The treatment team at the Saisei Mirai Clinic uses a combination of therapies that include (a) weekly Gc-MAF injections; (b) high-dose intravenous vitamin C therapy twice a week; (c) oral alpha lipoic antioxidant supplementation 600 mg/day; (d) oral vitamin D3, 5000-10,000 IU/day.

“All of these therapies aim to strengthen and activate the immune system and take a holistic approach to fighting cancer rather than a localized approach that is common with conventional therapies such as radiation and surgery,” their report says.

Could it be that Linus Pauling was right?

He asserted that much of humanity’s medical problems related to our inability to synthesize Vitamin C.

Since Vitamin C is a “cheap” supplement … about 4₵ a pill … one a day … and perhaps we have a medical revolution.

I’m sure the FDA and the AMA will be against it. Too cheap or too dangerous?

4 Things You Should Know About Your ‘Third Eye’
We still lack a complete understanding of the pineal gland — but that doesn’t stop us from speculating.

*** begin quote ***

Located in nearly the direct center of the brain, the tiny pinecone-shaped pineal gland, which habitually secretes the wondrous neurohormone melatonin while we sleep at night, was once thought to be a vestigial leftover from a lower evolutionary state.

Indeed, according to recent research, we could be increasing our chances of contracting chronic illnesses like cancer by unnecessarily bathing its evenings in artificial light, working night shifts or staying up too late. By disrupting the pineal gland and melatonin’s chronobiological connection to Earth’s rotational 24-hour light and dark cycle, known as its circadian rhythm, we’re possibly opening the doors not to perception, but to disease and disorder. A recently published study from Vanderbilt University has found associations between circadian disruption and heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

By hacking what pinealophiles call our mind’s third eye with an always-on technoculture transmitting globally at light-speed, we may have disadvantaged our genetic ability to ward off all manner of complicated nightmares. No wonder the pineal gland is a pop-culture staple for sci-fi, fantasy and horror fandom, as well as a mass attractor of mystics and mentalists. Its powers to divide and merge our light and dark lives only seems to grow the more we take it seriously.

I’m interested in anything about that!


No idea if it’s linked. Nor if there’s anything that can be done!
