  • “The fact that French are generally lean and healthy despite a rich diet is called the “French paradox.”
  • One way of thinking is that the portions are smaller than the ones in the US so even though they are consuming saturated fats, it is still seen as healthier because the portions are significantly smaller.
  • Red wine has polyphenol resveratrol that is said to have positive effects.
