August 31, 2021
Bad news for BBQ lovers and eating competitors alike — eating a single hot dog may take 36 minutes off your life, according to a new study from the University of Michigan. If it’s true, that means Miki Sudo has lost 10,080 minutes or seven days of her life, just from participating in the seven Nathan’s Hot Dog eating contests where she took home the championship title. The study also lists foods that add to your lifespan, including avocados and bananas.
