Junk Food Ads are Leaving the Station

Junk food adverts are set to be banned from Tube stations and bus stops in London to confront the rising rates of childhood obesity. Draft plans are expected to be formally approved this coming week, which prevent the promotion of high fat, sugar and salt fast food throughout the Transport for London network. The London Food Strategy plans were proposed by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan earlier this year to tackle what he describes as a ‘ticking timebomb’ of childhood obesity. In May he told the Metro: “If we don’t take bold steps against it, we are not doing right by our young people as well as placing a huge strain on our already pressurised health service in years to come.” London currently holds the status of the European city with the most overweight and obese children, wi

Friday night treat anyone? Well, you can pick up a free doughnut on your way home today. Doughnut Time and Deliveroo are giving away thousands of the sweet treats from 5pm outside Euston, Waterloo and St. Paul’s stations.

The Internet is filled with photos and videos of burgers which seem to never go bad. Photos of McDonald's burgers (also known as immortal burgers), in particular, not showing any signs of mould after being left out in the open for a while have been extremely popular. If you haven't heard or seen any of this, then my friend, you've been living under a rock. Don't worry about it though because we've got your back. We've decided to test this theory -- three burgers from three different fast food chains were filmed for seven days to see whether any of them would get mouldy, and if so, which one would get mouldy first and the most. To find out more click on the video below: It is a bit concerning that it took all burgers around four to five days to show the first signs of mould, s...

According to a global study by Mercer, London is officially in top 20 most expensive cities in the world for expats to live in. How does this fit in the busy life of a student? After a long day spent between trying to meet deadlines and working late hours to pay the rent, one can't be expected to have the energy to cook a proper meal. Unless you want to have cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the most hassle-free option is eating out. Student Money Survey has recently published an article which can help us get an essence of what the true cost of getting a degree in the UK is. According to the survey, 78% of students are worried about making ends meet and while most of them are worried about money, some can't even afford to eat or drink. Therefore, 11% of students turn to gambli
