Do you like hot dogs?
Hot dogs are among America’s favorite foods, but you might want to think twice the next time you’re tempted to grab one off the grill.
New research from the University of Michigan suggests that eating one hot dog takes 36 minutes off your life.
The study warns that eating other popular foods like bacon, burguers and pizza may also shorten your life.
According to the findings, foods such as processed meats, sugary drinks and breakfast sandwiches, most of which were found in the red zone, can take minutes off one’s life, while choices such as nuts, fruits and some fish can add minutes.
When eating a hot dog specifically, the negative impact is “largely due to the detrimental effect of processed meat,” researchers said.
These options can then be replaced with the most nutritionally beneficial foods, which include field-grown fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts and “low-environmental impact seafood,” researchers suggest.
