Study: One hot dog takes 36 minutes off your life

A new study suggests that eating one hot dog takes 36 minutes off your life.

A new research study from the University of Michigan evaluated more than 5,800 foods ranking them by their nutritional disease burden to humans.

A beef hot dog on a bun resulted in 36 minutes lost “largely due to the detrimental effect of processed meat.”

If that headline stresses you out imagine what 14-time Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Champion Joey Chestnut is thinking.

In competition alone, Chestnut has eaten at least 1,094 hot dogs adding up to 39,384 minutes off his life or a little more than 27 days, according to that study.

By the way, the study also found that Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches were associated with an added 33 minutes of healthy and happy living.
