Hot dog blues

Researchers say men who eat lot of hot dogs and bologna sandwhiches could be jeopardizing their health as well as their waistlines.  According to a group of Harvard scientists , men who regularly eat processed meats such as frankfurters, bologna and bacon face a fifty percent increased risk for type 2 diabetes. And, men who eat these foods at least five times a week face the greatest risk. While more research is needed to confirm the findings, scientists recommend replacing at least some of those hot dogs and bacon burgers with lower fat alternatives to protect against heart disease, diabetes and other health risks associated with obesity.
