Researchers at the University of Michigan School of Public Health have found that eating a single hot dog could take 36 minutes off your life.
In their study, published this month in the journal Nature Food, they looked at 5,853 foods in the US diet and measured their effects in minutes of healthy life gained or lost.
The research, which also addressed environmental impacts, found that substituting 10% of daily caloric intake from beef and processed meats with a mix of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and select seafood could reduce one’s dietary carbon footprint by a third and allow people to gain 48 minutes of healthy life per day.
