As farmers all over Europe struggle to make a living in the age of the industrialized factory farm, Jacques Jeffredo, a former farmer and activist, estimates that over 600 French farmers commit suicide each year. While that figure is higher than any official reports have demonstrated, the French Institute for Public Health Surveillance has indeed found that male farmers were 20 percent more likely to take their own lives than the rest of the population—a finding that increases with age, climbing to 47 percent above the national average for male farmers aged 55 to 64.
