    So they've solved the French paradox -

    Primal Fuel
    The secret to why the French live longer - Roquefort cheese - Telegraph

    There. The French live longer despite eating all that evil saturated fat, which everyone knows normally makes people drop dead of heart attacks all over the place, because of ripe Roquefort. Aren't you glad they found out?

    I'm so relieved. Now I can go back to eating all the wheat and vegetable oil I please so long as I have a piece of roquefort once a week. No?
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    A piece of Roquefort a day keeps the doctor away? Best news I've heard in years.

    Eat this:

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Yum Yum.

    Of course it could be because they have one of the best health services in the world, a great work life balance, they eat real food and have strong family networks.

    Roque-fart and apples? Yes please! Sounds like the perfect snack to me.

    Such discoveries don't help me at all. I know that cheeses kill. I feel pain whenever I think about how much I pay for them and I do avoid the really expensive ones. So please drop the demand to help me instead of stimulating it.
    BTW, the French do like their baguettes.

    They will be tugging nasty stinky cheese from the death grip of my gnarled hands on the day of my demise.

    Frankly, such comparisons don't make much sense. I think it's easier to live long on the Riviera than in some sunless North.

    The French walk all day every day. Has nothing to do with baguette or cheese...
