I know and understand that red licorice isn't doing me any favors, but that doesn't stop me from wolfing it down in handfuls if you put it in front of me. That's just human nature. Do the food crime now, do the time later.
But the list of food crimes keeps growing. Seems like every day there's some kind of buzz kill in the news about our favorite foods. It's honestly difficult to keep up with all of the disappointment.
That said, it's important info. Most of the time, when you're indulging in a treat, you have a vague idea that you're not helping your body much. You just don't know how much damage you're doing.
And even knowing the damage you're doing to yourself, giving up a favorite food is hard to do. I just can't say no to that licorice!
What do you think? Will you be giving up on hot dogs after reading this?
COMMENT on Facebook to let us know if you'll still indulge!
America's favorite ballpark snack was dealt a blow by medical research.
The World Health Organization placed hot dogs — along with bacon and other processed meats — on a list of things that are "carcinogenic to humans".
Their study found a strongest link between processed meat and colorectal cancer.
Now, the study doesn't say that eating hot dogs is as bad as smoking.
