processed meat! It is Heaven in a strip shape. :)
By processed I mean like ground up so much you can't tell what it is. When you look at a strip of bacon you can see it came off a pork belly.
So what is in that hot dog anyway? Pork ears? Pork noses? Pork uteruses? Pork anuses? BTW I've seen the last two available in international markets, no lie!
My objection to processed food is because unprocessed food the contaminants are on the outside, in processed food the contaminants are ground up throughout the volume, so if there's anything live in there it can't be washed off or seared off. And also the chemicals they have to add to prevent that. And I don't know I'm no authority and maybe that's all wrong, but I've seen the scientific reports that link eating processed meat to all kinds of disorders. I'm not even good enough to decide for myself whether the reports are valid, but I'm not seeing any article decrying all the false reports that eating processed food is bad for your health.
My dog likes pig ears. Unfortunately cured pig ears are too expensive now, and my dog got old and I'm worried he might harm his old teeth eating something that hard.
