Britain's Biggest Burger Sends Our Heart Racing, And Not In A Good Way (VIDEO)

Just looking at the Britain's biggest burger from the comfort of our office in London is making our cholesterol rise.

The 25lb monster burger, includes a 20-inch bun, 4lb of cheese, 20 sliced tomatoes, a pound of salad leaves and enough beef to make one hundred quarter-pounders.
