Diet: Worst Foods in Your Fridge – Hot Dogs and Sausage. “Processed meats” like hot dogs and sausage are a staple in many homes. Hot dogs and sausage tend to contain lots of sodium (520-680 milligrams per 2-ounce serving) and fat (up to 23 grams total fat and 7 grams saturated fat per serving). According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), most Americans take in more than double the recommended amount of sodium. Substitute with lower-fat and lower-sodium meats (roasted poultry, pork tenderloin, roast beef and shrimp) or grilled vegetables (portabella mushrooms, eggplant, or roasted red pepper). Or, try lower-fat options like “light” franks, turkey kielbasa, or soy-based sausage substitutes.

Wellness/Prevention: Symptoms Are Not An Indicator Of Health. If you are symptom free, are you perfectly healthy? Consider the healthy looking person who suddenly dies of a heart attack. Obviously they were not healthy.
