#1 -- France: Liberty, Fraternity... Depression?
With their laid back lifestyle, amazing food, chic fashion and general appreciation of the finer things in the life, the French are renowned for knowing how to live well. (They are even better at getting sick than Americans, according to Michael Moore). But in one area of life at least Americans really shouldn't be using the French as a model -- mental health. With 21 percent of French people reporting experiencing depression, they were the only people with a higher incidence of the condition than Americans.
