Bacon: 1 slice subtracts 9 minutes of life – false!

I’m sure you’ve all run across this. So lets do a little math:

Let’s say I have bacon once every two weeks, four slices.

So that’s 26 times a year times 4 = 104 total slices per year.

104 slices times 9 minutes gives us 936 minutes. Or a total of 15.6 hours off my lifespan. Even if I were to eat twice that it’s only 31.2 HOURS!

Let’s take it to the ridiculous though – 4 slices of bacon every day for a year. 365 times 4 = 1,460 slices times 9 minutes is 13,140 minutes or 219 hours, or 9.125 days.

Now consider average lifespan for a human male is 72 or so years. 9 days aren’t going to make any difference.

So in essence it’s all bunk. Just thought you might want to know that and eat as much bacon as you want.
