The Cancer Project is a non-profit dedicated to cancer prevention, nutrition education, research, and buzzkills:
A national vegan advocacy organization Wednesday filed a class-action lawsuit in New Jersey Superior Court against five hot dog manufacturers, including ConAgra Foods Inc., asking that they be ordered to attach warning labels to their packaging.
The Cancer Project, based in Washington, D.C., said in the lawsuit that a study by the American Institute for Cancer Research showed that the daily consumption of hot dogs and other processed meats can increase the risk of developing colorectal cancer by as much as 21 percent.
The Cancer Project wants packages of hot dogs to carry the following words: “Warning: Consuming hot dogs and other processed meats increases the risk of cancer” . . . “Just as tobacco causes lung cancer, processed meats are linked to colon cancer,” Dr. Neal Barnard, president of the Cancer Project, said in a press release.
Best part: ConAgra, the maker of Hebrew Nationals, declined comment and instead referred questions to woman named Janet Riley, who is referred to as “president of the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council who calls herself the ‘Queen of Wien.'”
As God is my witness, I’m going to marry Ms. Janet Riley one day.
