The Good Times Could Be Killing You

We all say that we want to live a “healthier” life, but when it comes down to it, most of us just get drunk and pass out in a stripper (oh…just me?). But according to a new story from Men’s Health, the good times could be killing us. And not so slowly.

Dr. David Spiegelhalter told Men’s Health that it may be difficult to realize how something you do today can effect you 30 or 40 years down the road. Luckily for us, he broke down how some things can directly influence our life spans.

He thinks about the effect of specific activities on your longevity in terms of “microlives” — or 30-minute windows. Break the numbers down and you’ll see just how binge drinking cuts years from your life: After the first one, which increases your lifespan by 30 minutes, every alcoholic drink that you down today brings you 15 minutes closer to death.

Pretty crazy stuff. Below is a chart of how some stuff either positively or negatively your life. Some of this is pretty eye opening. For more go over to Men’s Health’s website.

If all these numbers are correct (let me do a little quick math…) it looks like I should have died in 1779. Go me, beating the law of science and what not. WOOOHOOO!
