Hot dogs Making U.S. History

July is National Hot Dog Month, a whole month (31 days) dedicated to celebrate the hot dog and July 23 is the peak day of that month long celebration.


Now I’m not going to go into the ingredients of what comprises a hot dog,  but I will say this

Hot dogs, bologna and dog food were all invented during the mass slaughterization of cows and pigs.  Long ago we got our food from family farms, then  factories and profits took over and we developed a way to slaughter over 100,000 animals a day.

The rich get T-bones, New York strips, rack of ribs, rib eyes, hams and pork chops, but not everybody can afford those cuts of meat.  So with tons of scraps left over they manufacture it one more time (thousands of new jobs and profit) and feed it to dogs and poor people.

We get hot dogs, bologna, ground beef, sausage, deli meat, salami, turkey bacon, and Spam to name a few.  The dogs get the same ingredients too, look on the bag as it is written.  Price separates quality, nobody will give away the good stuff.

Pssss  (don’t eat it)

The USDA and our government releases every 5 years “Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans” (read report here)

Consumption of lower-quality or incomplete protein is of greater concern when protein needs are high. Additionally, recommendations to lower calorie intake to combat obesity by increasing plant-based food intake must be linked to cautionary messages to maintain protein total intake of sufficient quality at recommended levels“.

Our government doesn’t feel obliged to tell what sufficient quality stated in the report means because we can not afford to ruin the industries and put that many people out of work.

  • The doctors who treat the diseased and sick (food poison)
  • Insurance companies who sell to both patient and doctors
  • Lawyers who litigate for the patients, doctors, and industries (beef recalls)
  • But of course the farmers and families of the factory worker.

Too big to fail?

I say NO

It’s population control for our government.  The people who eat the meat will be diseased (heart attack, stroke, cancer and mental illness from chemical additives) and die.

  1. I don’t really think they are INTENDING it as pop.control. Businesses want MORE customers, right? Our pop. is bigger than ever and still growing, and our percentage of elderly continues to grow. Unfortunately our growing pop. has worsening health. Let’s not kill them outright–make them just sick enough that they come back for more.

    I think the priority for the companies is convenience and cost. Also the lower quality food is cheap at the grocery store too, so it SEEMS like a great deal to people on a tight budget. And we buy it hook, line, and sinker.

    The food industry doesn’t really have to care about doctors/pharmeceutical comapanies and vice versa–each of those industries feels like it’s isolated and can just focus on its “best interest.” But they are connected. If you could calculate the actual consequences to a person from all those groups connected to health, it would be easy to see how completed screwed up we are.

    Isn’t this system more expensive to our country? And those companies don’t have to pay the ultimate cost–we do. We’ve taken the “easy and cheap” way out and now have to pay the consequences.

    Wouldn’t it be cheaper in the long run to have a healthy nation?

  2. good point,
    What if we were all healthy and lived for long periods of time, what would our country do? build more retirement villages? Some seniors now have to work till they die because if they don’t, they’ll just DIE

  3. Hmm… If we were healthier as we got older, wouldn’t the govt actually have to build FEWER retirement villages, since we’d be healthy enough to care for ourselves longer? We’d also be more productive during our working years, hopefully being able to save money to pay for whatever care we would need.

    I wonder what people would actually die from most often, if our food-related health problems were no longer an issue??? The #1 killer of Americans age 50 and older is….Extreme Sports! lol

    (I wish more of my students would argue like this with me. They just want me to give ’em an answer. Ha! Cuz life is just FULL of simple answers! 😉

  4. i will go out screaming!!!
