BAIERBRUNN, GERMANY - Germans are the champions of Europe when it comes to visiting the doctor's office for their ailments, the pharmacy magazine 'Apotheken Umschau' reported, citing a British study.

The magazine said that the Picker Institute Europe found that 42 percent of Germans answered 'yes' to the question: "Have you visited the doctor within the past 4 weeks?"

By comparison, only 30 percent of people in Spain, Switzerland and Italy gave this response, followed by 22 percent in Britain. At the bottom of the list were Swedes, only 15 percent of whom said they had visited a doctor in the previous four weeks.
