We all know that double dipping is a major party foul. But we never thought it could kill you!?

According to Gizmodo, a study at Tulane University in New Orleans analyzed flu data from the past 35 years, and found an interesting connection to the Super Bowl.

The death rate increases if a city's team is in the Super Bowl. People over 65 in that city are 18% more likely to die . . . and that's not a coincidence.

Why are getting sick? Apparently it's because we are more likely to attend a big Super Bowl party with people we don't know so we get sick from their germs. And it gets even worse when people start getting into the game and begin double dipping.

Because older people are the most susceptible to dying from the flu, that's really bad news for them.
