The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.



On the other hand, the French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.



The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.



The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans



Conclusion:



Eat & drink what you like. It\'s speaking English that kills you.
