The top 5 worst foods that could SHORTEN your life expectancy

I saw the screaming headline - the top 5 worst foods that could shorten your life. And of course I had to click. Once you see them, they're not surprising. I do like this article because it actually lists the minutes you lose in life expectancy when you eat them. And it also shows the minutes you potentially gain by adding better foods to your diet. So without further delay...your top 5 worst foods and minutes of life expectancy lost when eating them as sourced by a study at the University of Michigan:

  • Cheddar - 1.4 minutes
  • Bacon -6.4 minutes
  • Pizza -7.8 minutes
  • Double cheeseburger -8.8 minutes
  • Soft drinks -12.4 minutes
  • And coming in at #1 - HOT DOGS -36.3 minutes

On the flip side, the study estimated you GAINED over 30 minutes by eating a PB&J.
