Joey Chestnut's Fans Are Concerned After This Shocking Report About Hot Dogs

Fans of competitive eater Joey Chestnut are concerned for him after a new report was released about the effect that hot dogs can have on your life.

Since his debut in 2005, the 37-year-old Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest winner has reportedly eaten a combined 1,094 hot dogs during the annual contests.

A new report claims that eating a beef hot dog on a bun will shorten your life by 36 minutes, according to the New York Post. The report says that the minutes lost are ‚Äúlargely due to the detrimental effect of processed meat.”

Those 1,094 hot dogs that Chestnut has eaten during the annual contests amounts to 39,384 minutes lost from his life. That is equal to a little more than 27 days.

Chestnut has obviously eaten more hot dogs in his life during qualifying events and during his training time, so it’s unclear how many he’s actually consumed.

Joey is now trending on Twitter with people voicing their concern for him and others shunning the results of the study.

“if this were true Joey Chestnut would have been dead in 1873,” one fan tweeted. Someone else wrote, “Either Joey Chestnut is immortal or this study is ridiculous.”
