Hot dogs may be a cancer risk according to a report published in a cancer research journal, AFP reports from Washington. Researchers at the University of Southern California discovered that children who eat more than 12 hot dogs a month have nine times the normal risk of getting leukemia.

The trigger for the cancer could be chemicals used to preserve processed meats such as hot dogs, say the studies. But the researchers' findings are only preliminary.
