Although the ballpark staple is a popular summer food, hotdogs are definitely not a favorite among health professionals, who take issue with the low nutrition levels of the food and how hot dogs are processed.  A typical pork hot dog contains 204 calories and 18 g of total fat and 620 g of sodium — and this is before condiments like ketchup, mustard and relish are added.  Furthermore, eating hot dogs increases your chances of getting certain diseases. Hot dogs, like many processed meats, are linked to increased risks for health issues like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and higher mortality.  An analysis of the diets of 1,660 people found that the risk for getting bladder cancer went up with the amount of processed meats consumed. And a study found that eating processed foods made for a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes than eating red meat.
