rojo: the big winner in China was the massive reduction in air pollution:
I'm very intersted in seeing the impact of smoking on this.
Here are the facts on smoking.
In 2015, more than 50% of the men in China smoked (women are way down like 2.7%).. The fact that the death rate for men in china is 60+% higher than women is probably linked to this is my hunch.
To the guy saying France's smoking is similar to the US, that's not true at least in smoking rates (maybe in total cigaretters per person as it's a more social thing there versus huge addiction here). In 2017, 31% of people smoked in France. Here it's just 16%. In Italy, it's 24%.
