Hot Dog Ingredients
Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor natural medicine
and founder of draxe.com.
Welcome to Ancient Medicine Today.
Today’s broadcast I’ll be talking about what’s
in the hot dog and I’m telling you right now
it will probably scare you and blow your mind
but also be I’ll be sharing with you what
are some natural alternatives to today’s hot
Let’s go ahead and get started and say, you
know, I know a lot of people in fact hot dogs
are one of the most consume food and America
They are served at ballparks.
They’re served at roadside stands all over
major cities and really is a staple, I would
say of the American diet, but unfortunately
today’s hot dogs don’t stand up to the original
of what they actually should or could be,
which actually can be healthy.
What’s in a hot dog?
You’re going to be surprised to find out here.
By the way, hey, you should share this video
with somebody because I think a lot of people
don’t realize what they’re eating on a daily
Number one, corn syrup.
We know that corn syrup and high fructose
corn syrup and you may not realize that when
you’re tasting a hotdog, did you know they’re
adding all of this extra sugar to it?
Well, this is a main staple of what’s in a
hot dog and it’s genetically modified corn
that’s then processed into sugar.
We know genetically modified foods have the
DNA of different viruses and pesticides wired
A lot of people if you would grab an apple
and spray it with chemicals, would you eat
it right away?
A lot of people are doing that on a daily
basis with their food but what’s even worse
is when it’s actually wired into the food,
into its DNA as is corn syrup one of the main
ingredients in hot dogs.
Number two, sugar.
So again people don’t think of hot dogs as
being sweet but if you taste a hot dog, it
has a subtle sweetness to it because of all
of the sugar and corn syrup that’s added.
We know the side effects of sugar are increases
your risk of diabetes, increases your risk
of cancer, increases your risk of heart disease,
increases your risk of pretty much any disease
known to man because it causes inflammation
and it imbalances insulin levels.
When insulin gets thrown off, it can cause
other hormonal issues, cortisol to increase,
human growth hormone to lower, and on and
on and on.
These two reasons are big enough reasons to
stay away from hot dogs but we’re just getting
Number three here, we know factory farm meat
is specifically pork.
Now what you get is conventional pork and
we know that pigs themselves are scavengers.
They love to eat worms and parasites.
In fact, traditionally with certain types
of farms, they would have the hogs go around
and clean up rotted fruit that had parasites
and worms growing out of it and that’s what
they really ate.
Really they will eat pretty much anything
out there today.
I’m not even going to mention some of the
stuff they roll around in, in their own stuff.
And so again factory farm meat primarily pork
is what’s in hot dogs.
We know, and by the way, I just spent hours
writing an article on this about all of the
parasites that pigs carry and what happens
to us when we actually eat the food.
They’re the most toxic meat and toxic animal
on the planet and that’s the main farm meat.
And that’s just them if they’re eating naturally.
Now in a conventional state, they are fed
garbage and they’re also injected with steroids
and antibiotics and growth hormones.
So when you’re eating conventional farm meat,
especially pork, which is the worst of the
worst by far, you’re getting steroids, growth
hormones, antibiotics, and estrogen mimicking
You’re getting all of this bad type of omega-6
fats, which cause inflammation, unhealthy
types of saturated fat and a number of other
chemicals all from getting this factory farm
meat not to mention parasites actually in
the food you’re eating.
That’s a big enough reason to stay away from
hot dogs but again we’re not done yet.
Number four here, nitrates and nitrites, especially
when you’re eating something like a pork bacon,
it’s full of these chemicals that cause histamine
reactions, it actually damage the health of
your heart and your cardiovascular system,
and increase your risk of gut damage, increasing
your risk of autoimmune disease all from nitrates
Number five here, phosphoric acid or phosphates.
Now this is a chemical family that is used
in the treatment of several conditions but
it’s been linked to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,
and a number of other digestive disturbances
there as well.
Number six are just fillers in general.
Again, one of the things that are added into
hot dogs a lot of times even is corn flour
and other fillers, more genetically modified
material and that’s what gives it sort more
Think about it.
If you have a steak or that type of meat,
it’s a very specific.
Again, it’s more chewy.
It’s a certain texture.
The texture of a hot dog you can tell is this
mixture of this chemically farmed pork, along
with sugar, along with other chemicals, along
with a lot of times GMO corn or soy, a lot
of times there’s soy in there as well.
That makes it kind of that mess.
If you ever had like tofu or tempeh, that
sponginess, that’s typically from a soybean
or processed wheat.
So many hot dogs have three of the biggest
allergens in the world of processed wheat,
soybeans, and GMO corn all in there as part
of the fillers.
You’re going to have in a hot dog.
Number seven, actually, the DNA of humans
has actually been found in hot dogs.
Talk about toxic to the body.
So again, listen, here’s the good news is
that you can find healthier alternatives.
What I would recommend is going and looking
for several options here.
One, buy organic when you’re buying a type
of a hot dog.
Number two, look for beef hot dogs that are
made with 100% beef so organic beef hot dogs
or kosher hot dogs.
That’s what you want to buy.
Those are much better options.
There are also turkey and chicken hot dogs
or bratwurst or things like that, but again,
you want to look for kosher or organic.
One of the two, kosher or organic and made
with 100% meat like beef or bison or chicken
if you’re buying hot dogs.
So listen, on this video I’m not telling you
never to consume a hot dog.
I’m saying never consume a conventional hot
Instead go for organic, go for good kosher,
go for all natural types of meat ideally grass
fed like beef, and again, you’re going to
be much healthier for it.
So again listen, nobody ever benefited from
it, and again, I know hot dogs taste great,
but you know what, I’m telling you right now
I prefer, I’ve had a grass fed beef hot dog
not too long ago actually a couple of months
ago when I was in Florida, and you know what,
it tasted better than that conventional junk
So again, you can find healthier alternatives
out there I guarantee it.
