The French president Macron has just announced a plan to open 1000 new cafes in rural areas of France, an idea set to boost local economies. Small town mayors can apply if their town/village has fewer than 3,500 residents, and no café.

But there can be a surprising side effect -- studies show that strong communities and social networks can lower mortality risk even by 45 percent. Will the new cafes make French people healthier, even if just a tiny bit? I bet they will! #longevity #France #cafe
