I'm going to preface my comments by stating that I think the ban on sodas larger than 16oz is completely ridiculous.
A hot dog is ENTIRELY more healthy for you than a soda. People in this country seem to have a hard time grasping that soda is one of the worst things
you can put in your body. I've heard medical professionals profess that smoking a cigarette is less harmful to your health than drinking a soda.
Hot dogs aren't health food, but at least they qualify as food. They may be high in saturated fats and sometimes nitrates, but they also constitute a
valid source of protein. Hot dogs are a great way to get b-vitamins. When you ingest a hot dog, it provides your body with long term stored energy
that burns fat when you become active.
Soda contributes absolutely nothing to your body. Regular sodas are loaded with sugar which can contribute to myriad health problems, and quickly
converts to fat once entering the body. Diet sodas are loaded with chemicals, most of which have been proven to cause adverse health effects in lab
When sodas became popular in the 1950s, the average serving size was 7oz. Nowadays people are drinking 16, 24 and 42 oz sodas like they are water or
juice. It's absolutely the most damaging product to human health available as "food" in this country.
