12/5    Miss France is very good looking:
        http://curiousphotos.blogspot.com/2009/12/miss-france-2010-pictures-13-picsvideo.html
        \_ she has a hook nose and face is a bit too V shaped.  Body is ok.
           I mean lets look at the sample pool of 20 something EU:
           http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkPI8m5GhnA
        \_ French women in general are good looking, so Miss France is probably
           always very good looking. Can you find pics of previous years
           winners?
           \_ American women are prettier. They actually come in
              all sizes and all colors. French women? Blah. It's like
              eating the world's best crepe every single day. Even
              the best will taste bland after you get used to them.
              Variety is the spice of life.
           \_ I noticed a lot more blonde women in France than I expected
              to see and, yes, many are very attractive. My aunt moved
              \_ it's the organic food, I tell ya.
              to France and her daughters (my cousins) are all half-French
              and I think that they were very pretty when they were young.
              (They are pushing 50 now.) However, Miss France, although
              extremely attractive, doesn't have much in the way of T&A. Of
              the bunch of girls in the swimsuits she has probably the
              best body for modeling, but not really the most sexy body.
              \_ I agree, JACKIE JOHNSON is waaaay prettier! I like
                 Jackie's more robust body. NICE.
                 \_ Lisa Guerrero > Jackie Johnson.
                    http://www.hottystop.com/lisa-guerrero/4.jpg
              She might have the least curves of any of the women. I find
              that she's too skinny and unathletic. Do you like girls
              with flat butts? BTW, I think all those girls are French,
              right? "Miss France" was Miss Normandy.
              \_ The norse woman has flat butts. Look at examples across
                 the channel as well.  Their fat accumulation occurs on the
                 arms.
           \_ stupid generalization. It's like saying all the Japanese
              women are petite with a nice clean face like all the jporns.
              \_ In general is not the same as all.
              \_ In general is not the same as all. If I was looking for
                 petite women, Japan would be a good place to look.
                 \_ my point is, in Japan, most women are NOT as petite
                    and good looking as JMedia make you think it is. In
                    fact, most are slightly overweight, have freaky
                    hair, beady little eyes, NOT petite, and frankly, ugly.
                    \_ You know petite has more to do with height than
                       weight, right?  I would say 95% of Japanese women are
                       petite.
                       \_ Wow you're an idiot.
                          Petite = (height < 5'4" && weight/height < constant)
                          \_ No.
                             My mom is petite and my girlfriend is petite.
                             When I shop with them (in the petites section)
                             there are certainly size 0 and size 2 clothes
                             but there is also size 16P. It's a function
                             of height and not weight at all.
                             "In fashion and clothing, petite sizes are
                             standard clothing sizes designed to fit women
                             of shorter height, typically 5'3" or less."
                             http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petite_sizes
                    \_ More overweight than American women?
                       \_ there is no such a thing as an average American
                          woman. America is too diverse for any generalization
                          \_ yep, just watch the olympics if you have any
                             doubt.  Esp the volleyball teams.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petite_sizes
inseam lengths and vertical torso measurements (such as the back length and bust-waist length) must be altered significantly to fit well. Non-petite size dresses cannot be easily altered to produce the equivalent petite size, since, in general, these lengths (particularly the critical torso measurements) cannot be altered without introducing an unsightly seam. Significant errors in the torso measurements will make a well-fitted look impossible, eg, if the bust-point darts are off by three inches. In addition to its measurements, a petite-size garment may have a different design from those intended for taller women. For example, style elements may be added to give a longer, slimmer look, eg, vertical stripes, princess seams, short skirts, large patterns or patterns arranged helically around the whole body. style lines that appear to shorten the figure, such as horizontal lines (eg, clamdigger pants or midcalf skirts); hence, even if the measurements are adjusted correctly, a petite-size version of a regular-size garment may be unflattering. edit Frequency The average height of an American woman is roughly 5'4" (163 cm), with a standard deviation of roughly 4" (10 cm). Thus, 40% of all American women are 5'3" (160 cm) or shorter (z < = - 025) and roughly one-quarter are 5'1" (155 cm) or shorter (z < = - 075). Different racial groups and age groups may also have a high population of shorter women. In the UK and throughout much of Europe and Australasia the average height varies from 5' (152 cm) to 5'6" (168 cm). The old clothes sizes tended to correspond to the UK's 1951 size survey, which took 5'2" (157 cm) as average height, and also took a slim, hour glass figure as standard, which made sense in countries which had post-World War II rationing in place. In the 1990s the Size UK project examined 16,000 people and changed the measurements for the 'average' size. This was widely reported, but stores responded to the headline (people getting bigger) rather than the facts (height rising only slightly but many individuals fatter). As a result, women who wear petite sizes have significantly fewer options for fashionable clothing, mainly basic bottoms and tops. There are stores that offer a full range or larger of petite clothes online or via catalog. Banana Republic and JCrew, the latter of which only sells petites online and through its catalog. Banana Republic recently opened some petite-only stores, which sell a wider range of garments than larger stores which have only one petite department. Eddie Bauer, while having only limited petite selections available in their retail stores, offers all of their women's clothing in both petite and tall sizes, in addition to regular misses. Compared to the plus-sizes industry, promotion of petite sizes in magazines and the fashion world is less prominent, even though many well-known celebrities are short.

County-Specific Diabetes and Obesity Prevalence, 2007 US Obesity Trends Trends by State 1985-2008 Obesity is defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater. BMI is calculated from a person's weight and height and provides a reasonable indicator of body fatness and weight categories that may lead to health problems. Obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer, and type 2 diabetes. In 2008, only one state (Colorado) had a prevalence of obesity less than 20%. Thirty-two states had a prevalence equal to or greater than 25%; six of these states (Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia ) had a prevalence of obesity equal to or greater than 30%. The animated map below shows the United States obesity prevalence from 1985 through 2008. the CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). Each year, state health departments use standard procedures to collect data through a series of monthly telephone interviews with US adults. Prevalence estimates generated for the maps may vary slightly from those generated for the states by the BRFSS as slightly different analytic methods are used. Obesity by Race/Ethnicity 2006-2008 New Obesity Data Shows Blacks Have the Highest Rates of Obesity Blacks had 51 percent higher prevalence of obesity, and Hispanics had 21 percent higher obesity prevalence compared with whites. Greater prevalences of obesity for blacks and whites were found in the South and Midwest than in the West and Northeast. Hispanics in the Northeast had lower obesity prevalence than Hispanics in the Midwest, South or West. For this study analysis, CDC analyzed the 2006-2008 BRFSS data. County-Specific Diabetes and Obesity Prevalence, 2007 Wide sections of the Southeast, Appalachia, and some tribal lands in the West and Northern Plains have the nation's highest rates of obesity and diabetes. In many counties in those regions, rates of diagnosed diabetes exceed 10 percent and obesity prevalence is more than 30 percent. Eighty-one percent of counties in the Appalachian region that includes Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia have high rates of diabetes and obesity. So do three-quarters of counties in the southern region that includes Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina. The estimates, in this week's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, are the first to provide county-level snapshots of obesity across the United States. They also update diabetes county-level estimates released in 2008.

The Corn Connection Is the obesity epidemic an unintended consequence of US food policy? Children are being exposed to more TV ads than ever--are junk food ads to blame for them being fat? Any diet book will help you lose weight if you stick to the plan, but the theories behind them vary widely. The Fat Five The list of factors that have conspired to make us fat is a long one, but experts put these five at or near the top.
