You may be overlooking the fact that even when you are visiting European websites you may very well be sending requests to the US. In fact this is something very likely to happen.

Also wouldn't the behavior of connecting through the US be actually beneficial in such context?

Lets pretend you want to make a connection to a US server. Your connection starts at the client side, so your computer, where it will be encrypted before it goes through Tor relays. Now given your Tor exit relay is in the US and your (probably unencrypted) traffic really leaves the network there Tor just provided you with an anonymizing, encrypting tunnel through those tapped IXs.
