… live, study finds.

"Seven of the top 10 unhealthiest places to live in Britain are in central London, while the healthiest is a small market town in Devon, a study has concluded.

Inner London had the greatest access to takeaways, pubs and off-licences, combined with high levels of air pollution and low levels of parks and green spaces, the research found.

In contrast, Great Torrington in north Devon had low levels of pollution, good access to parks, green space and health services, along with few retail outlets…"

Plus, I expect, the sheer stress and hassle of living there..but I've never lived in London and I imagine some will thrive on it.

Somebody had to do a study to find that out?

Once more the Guardian's PC idiocy. If you actually wanted to find out which area was healthiest, you'd look at actual measures of health--sickness, surgery, life expectancy. Instead they authors in their wisdom, have decided a place is less "healthy" if it's easy to place a bet or enjoy a pint after work. I've seen education statistics done the same way: you got points for percentage of income spent on school systems, but not for literacy.

About 1.8 million die from air pollution in India every year. If those facts are correct? And I think they are. Of course India is not London ….

If those kids weren't so well dressed I would swear that was Braintree.

Did that horse in the photo ever wake up ?

Cerdic07 Aug 2019 11:02 a.m. PST

Yeah. Don't worry about the horse. He was a highly trained stunt horse…
