Do you read the nutritional labels that are found on the foods you eat or the products you drink? I don’t! I can’t! The labels aren’t in braille, and none of them talk either. That’s probably a good thing for me. That’s because results of a survey released yesterday indicate that our life expectancies can be effected by the foods we eat and the products we drink. A nutritional index claims that enjoying a soda, or a pop as we call it around these parts, will trim 12 minutes from your life and downing a cheese burger will cost you 9 minutes and a hot dog 36 minutes. That same survey claims eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich will increase your life expectancy by 36 minutes And that you can add 26 minutes to your life by enjoying a serving of nuts. The life expectancy for an average man is listed these days as 76 years. That’s 27,740 days or 675, 760 hours. Sounds to me like we all have a little time to spare. Perhaps I should be more health conscious, but I’m not going to stop enjoying a cheese burger or hot dog or an occasional pop any time soon, no matter what a survey suggests the benefits might be. That’s the way I see it.
