Also, What's up with "Fumer Tue" and "Pour Votre Santé, pratique une activité physique régulière?"
What is France's Budget?
"...of the €10.5 billion allocated for prevention in France in 2002, accounting for 6.4% of current health expenditure*, half was earmarked for disease prevention, one-quarter for screening and testing, and one quarter to cover risk factors." (/www.ambafrance-uk.org/)
Every 5 years France reassess their Public Health plan based off research and findings from The High Council for Public Health or current WHO studies.
Between 2004-2008 France's top priorities were:
1. Cancer
2. Health and the Environment
3. Rare Diseases (Including Alzheimer's Plan)
4. Violence, abuse, risk behavior and addictive behavior
5. Chronic illnesses and the quality of life
Obesity and Nutrition
France has the lowest BMI average in Europe, but the percentage of obesity in France is rising.
Programme National Nutrition Santé has created several educational tools.
1 in 10 adults are obese in France.
A higher percent of children are obese than adults.
The main contributor to the increase in obesity is processed foods, soft drinks and fast-food.
French Government involvement
The French government feel that it is their personal duty to educate and help people with current health epidemics.
2005 a Tax of Soft drinks was implemented and the proceeds go to financing health and social expenditures.
2007 all processed, sweeten and salted food and drink advertisements have to put a health message on their ad or pay a 1.5% fine for the cost of the ad. This is to help guide adults in children when making eating decisions.
Statistics (2012):
14% of Youth smoke daily and 20% smoke in general.

29% of adults smoke daily and 33% smoke in general.
