We have all heard before that fast food was bad for us- but now, thanks to David Spiegelhalter, PHD, we know exactly how bad.

In a paper published in the British Medical Journal, Spiegelhalter spells out exactly how much time each of our habits takes away from our lives. Here are some of his findings:

  • Burger: -30 minutes
  • Smoking 2 cigarettes: -30 minutes
  • Drinking 2 extra drinks (3/day for women, 4/day for men): -30 minutes
  • One Portion of red meat: -30 minutes
  • Extra 11 pounds of body weight: -30 minutes
  • Watching 2 hours of TV: -30 minutes

However, the findings weren’t all bad:

  • Drinking 1 drink per day: +30 minutes
  • 20 minutes of moderate exercise a day: +1 hour
  • Daily fresh fruits and vegetables: +2 hours
  • Being a women: +2 hours/day
