Hot dogs are wurst for us

-

EATING a hot dog will cost you 36 minutes of “healthy” life – but swap it for a handful of nuts and you will gain an extra 26.

A study looked at 5,800 foods to work out which had the most impact on lifespan and the environmen­t.

It found replacing just 10 per cent of foods such as processed meat daily with healthier fruit and nuts could give you an extra 48 minutes of healthy, or disease-free, life per day.

It could also reduce your carbon footprint by one third, according to University of Michigan researcher­s.

Prof Olivier Jolliet said “small, targeted substituti­ons” give “significan­t health and environmen­tal benefits”.
