Racing fans who head to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the days and weeks to come will see a provocative anti-hot dog billboard sponsored by the Cancer Project of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine nonprofit. The billboard copy reads, "Warning: hot dogs can wreck your health." An accompanying image features four grilled hot dogs in a cigarettelike pack with a skull and crossbones logo.
Naturally, not everyone is on board with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway billboard. "Trying to link a food product that has clear nutritional value with a product like cigarettes, which have no redeeming qualities, is inflammatory and alarmist," said Janet Riley, the president of the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. Do you think the anti-hot dog billboard should stay?
