Whats the secret ? I mean they smoke a lot ( French way) and eat loads of cream , cheese and red meat doused in more grease. How do they escape being the heart disease capital of the world ?

Through not stressing themselves out about it?<br />

....actually, I wonder if that really could be it. Maybe it's not the fatty food that kills you but the constant "ohshitthislifestylesgonnakillmeohshitthislifestylesgonnakillme..."

I agree , but only partially.
At the end of the day , fatty food chokes the blood vessels. Not a lot of physical labor either.
For example , in some Eastern European countries they eat heavier food. But they work in their farms.

They are lazy and never do any work, thus avoiding stresses and strain.

Wine and sex ? :)

Best Answer

The French drink a lot of red wine. It offsets the harmful effects of bad living. It also extends our life if you otherwise live good.

Best Answer

They have a different lifestyle from Americans such as walking to small stores to buy fresh foods rather than get in their car and drive the 6 blocks or so. They also drink a lot of wine which helps the heart and eat fresh fruits & veggies which are anti-inflammatory, most chronic diseases are a result of inflammation in the body. Stress can also cause inflammation and their lifestyle is a good anti-stress one.

I read just over Christmas that researchers think there might be dome beneficial effect from the mold that gives color and flavor to blue veined cheeses. The French consume more bleu cheese than anyone. If I have to gorge on Roquefort, Bleu d'Auvern, Stilton and gorgonzola, I guess, in the interests of health, I'll make the sacrifice.
