Do Hot Dogs Cause Cancer?

Recently, a national stir was created when these billboards went up:

Processed meats like hot dogs have been connected with increased rick of cancer according to various studies and noted here by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

The hot dogs at our school are better than most - no nitrates, for example.  But what is our school teaching our kids when they  serve hot dogs at lunch? That hot dogs are a perfectly acceptable lunch and something they should eat regularly. I think they message that these are "Applegate" hot dogs is probably lost on them.

Let's ask our school to feed our kids real meals - not "kids menu" foods.
