Hot dogs actually are mixture of pork, beef and chicken, leftover foods from cutting steaks or pork chops and edible slaughter by-products, such as animal feet and heads, fatty tissue and skins.
After all the ingredients are mixed, numerous additives are added, such as: corn syrup, nitrates, large salt quantities, and other chemicals, most of which have been associated with cancer.

The most harmful substances that is used for production of hot dogs are Nitrates and nitrites, they blend with the amines on the high temperature and the final results are nitrosamines.

There is evidence that natural vitamin C found in citrus fruits and exotic berries (like camu camu) helps prevent the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines, protecting you from the devastating health effects of sodium nitrite in processed meats. The best defense, of course, is to avoid eating processed meats altogether.
