Subscribe for free to Dr. Greger’s videos at bit.ly Donate at bit.ly DESCRIPTION: Nitrites in processed meat form nitrosamines, a class of potent carcinogens found in cigarette smoke, which may explain why hot dog consumption has been associated with the two leading pediatric cancers, brain tumors and childhood leukemia. Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at nutritionfacts.org and I’ll try to answer it! So might not the nitrites produced in our mouths when we eat vegetables form carcinogens too? (See Priming the Proton Pump – nutritionfacts.org for an overview of the nitrate-to-nitrite process.) Don’t worry, we’re getting to that. In the meantime, what is really in hot dogs anyway? Glad you asked—see my video What Is Really In Hot Dogs?
