: Will I be accused of French-bashing for pointing this out?

Nearly one in four French people are on tranquillisers, anti-depressants, anti-psychotics or other mood-altering prescription drugs, a new report says.

An average of 40 per cent of men and women aged over 70 in France are routinely prescribed at least one of this class of dependence-creating drug, as well as about 4 per cent of all children under nine

One medical expert, Martine Perez, said in the newspaper Le Figaro: “The French now consume between two and four times as many tranquillisers and anti-depressants as the British, Italians and Germans.”
