Banana Dog


Did you know that the consumption of processed meats, like hot dogs, is linked to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes? There is even a dose-response relationship between processed meats and colorectal cancer: risk increases by 21 percent for every 50 grams per day of processed meat product consumed. To bring attention to this fact, Physicians Committee seeks to rename National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month as National Drop the Hot Dog Month. Instead of having a hot dog, have a banana dog!

When rice is processed and the bran is removed, it becomes white rice, which is essentially devoid of nutritional value and health-promoting properties.
