It’s called the “French paradox” ― low rates of cardiovascular mortality in France despite high saturated fat consumption.

It’s not just red wine that’s causing this; it is possible that cheese consumption may contribute to the phenomenon, as well, according to the December issue of Med Hypotheses. Click here for the abstract.
