I thought the sauce looked suspiciously glutenous so I asked him to check again with the chef. He returned and asked, "How allergic ARE you?"

Professor Kevin Fenton

Takeaways are part of this debate because we're eating more of our food outside the home than we used to - one in six meals and between 20% and 25% of calories come from eating out - and takeaway foods are a popular, but often unhealthy choice, because they tend to be high in salt and saturated fat and high in calories per gramme of food.

Holding a cigarette in the United States became such a taboo; you might as well be holding a gun instead!

By measuring happiness, we're measuring mood and people's ability to deal positively with challenges and what life throws up. So it's worrying to learn that the mood of the nation is lower this winter than last.
