History unsure A. Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany so many say that is where it all began. disputed by many "dachshund" or "little-dog" sausage, was created in the late 1600's by Johann Georghehner. Who was a butcher that lived in Coburg, Germany. According to this report, Georghehner later traveled to Frankfurt to promote his new product.
The origin of the name is also greatly disputed many say; that the hot dog got its name from a New York Journal sports cartoonist, Tad Dorgan. When he saw a man selling “red hot Dachund” so he quickly drew a cartoon of barking dachshund sausages wrapped in rolls. Not sure how to spell "dachshund" he simply wrote "hot dog!" The cartoon then became very famous, thus coining the term "hot dog." However, historians have been unable to find this cartoon, despite Dorgan's enormous body of work and his popularity. But one thing is for sure you don’t want to know what is in most lower quality hot dogs like Oscar Meyer

"If we use nitrite appropriately, intelligently and properly, then there's no real safety hazard,". Andy Milkowski, Ph.D., an adjunct professor in the department of animal sciences at the Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison
according to the American Meat Institute, the amount of nitrite allowed by the US Dept. of Agriculture to be added to cured meats is miniscule, at no more than 156 parts per million. "The amount of sodium nitrite that goes into a hot dog is closely regulated," says, Mike Weber, owner of a Dodger Dog. He notes that it's much less when compared to the nitrite amount a person would ingest if he had a green-leafy vegetable like spinach, which contains 500 to 1,000 parts per million of nitrite.
