I've been living in Europe now for a while and one thing that really strikes me is how old some people look relative to their age here. In England and the Netherlands, and to a lesser degree France and Germany people look much older than I'd rate them. Now I'm not talking about 16 year olds looking like they're 20, I'm talking about 20 year olds looking like they're 30 and 30 year olds looking like they're 40.
I wonder why this is. Is it polution, or the food? They do seem to drink a lot of alcohol and eat lot's of carbs, but I'm not sure. Do any of you have any idea why is is the case?
