If you're a 30-year-old woman in France, you are probably not overweight: 21% of French women are overweight compared to a whopping 62% of American women.

However, as a 30-year-old woman in France, you have a one-out-of-three chance of being a smoker and you probably drink around 17 gallons of wine a year.

C'est magnifique!
