PHOTO: Hot dog cancer billboard puts it bluntly
There is a wiener war going on and part of the battle ended up on the Eisenhower expressway.
If you're headed out of the city on the Ike, you'll spot a billboard between Cicero and Kostner that reads, "Hot Dogs Cause Butt Cancer."
It's part of an ad campaign by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. There are billboards like this across the country. In Miami, a sign reads, "Hot dogs can take you out of the game." Chicago was the only one fortunate enough to get the "butt cancer" poster. The group is trying to spread the message that red and processed meats have been linked to cancer. The PCRM says it was shocked by a study showing almost 40 percent of Americans don't know what the colon is.
Do you think the billboard accomplishes its goal or is it in poor taste? Let us know in the comments.
