    okay, just my own little giggle over here... in the list view, "million" is cut off the title, so it looks like "the number of obese people in France doubles to seven"... had a nice LOL.

    but yes, it seems as though nobody's immune to the effects of an increasingly modified (GMOs, selected breeding, species inappropriate diets, etc.) food supply.

    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Non traditional eating, highly processed oils...McDonalds etc...sigh.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    And I thought "French paradox" was French for "two French doctors."

    Even traditional eating is FULL of bread, potatoes, even pastas (mediterranean), so yeah, we didn't have the fear of saturated fats, and the degree of processing was less than in the USA, but it tends to change.

    And french people, even TRADITIONAL french people, aren't fit.
    It's a myth.

    They do suffer from diabetes, from heart diseases, high trig...etc
