Dumbass Organization Warns: A Hot Dog EVERY DAY Is Unhealthy

At this point, it's pretty clear that everything you eat or do is either unhealthy or bad for the environment. You'd expect as much from the state of California, but a group in Indiana has erected a huge billboard near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway warning that wieners can cause cancer. The asinine image shows four hot dogs sticking out of what looks like a pack of smokes, with an emblazoned skull and crossbones.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has taken it upon themselves to inform NASCAR fans that "Hot dogs can wreck your health," directing viewers to CancerProject.org. Last year, concession stands at the Indianapolis 500 speedway served more than 1.1 million hot dogs. Supposedly, one 50-gram serving of processed meat—or one wiener—consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 21%.

“A hot dog a day could send you to an early grave,” says a PCRM hack. “Processed meats like hot dogs can increase your risk for diabetes, heart disease and various types of cancer. Like cigarettes, hot dogs should come with a warning label that helps racing fans and other consumers understand the health risk.”

Oh for god's sake. You go to a race or a baseball game and enjoy a hot dog. How does that relate to a wiener a day? My message to the Physicians Committee: Bite me.
