Why the French live longer than Brits.


French women’s life expectancy is 84 yrs… approximately. English women’s, 81. So much has been said about diet, way of life, bla…bla…And of course so many factors have to be taken into account to make a proper assessment. Anthropologists, epidemiologists and psychologists, to name a few, will give you their view.

But I have discovered a new phenomenon. The French ( men live 1 year longer than their UK counterparts) HAVE to live longer. Why? Simple. I was watching a French news programme and an English person was being interviewed. Translation was delivered a few seconds later.

The English person made this comment: Wow!

The translation for this? C’est  impressionnant!

So there you have it. The French have to live longer or risk not finishing their sentences. 😉
