Last week at my annual visit, my cardiologist asked if I’d seen the study that for every hot dog eaten, life is shortened by 30 minutes…
Not that I eat a lot of hot dogs. Not that anyone with high cholesterol eats a lot of hot dogs. But seriously, what? There’s a MEDICAL STUDY that shows hot dogs lead to earlier death?
It turns out that there WAS a study done. A real one. Which was then written about with the kind of headline known as ‘click bait.’ Which works, obviously, as my doctor mentioned it.
