    So you base your argument off Indian restaurants being less hygienic, which is why you don't want to eat it. Fair enough

    And yet in your first post you said you'll "stick to chinese" even though those restaurants are even less hygienic?. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...3#post64147503

    lol wtf
    If you had read through the entirety of this thread (which tbf ain't nobody got fo' dat)

    You would have seen that this data has also changed my perspective on Chinese food too

    I agree, but have a look at some of the posts on the first few pages ITT, before that had been demonstrated. There are a couple of posters getting really mad at that suggestion because it's 'racist' to be more suspicious of particular kinds of establishment.

    The question now is why those numbers are as they are. My suggestion was that it can't necessarily all be chalked up to the fact that Indian and Chinese establishments are more likely to be budget options.
    The researchers who conducted the research put it down to language and cultural differences

    Chinese were the worst offenders (I admit this has changed my view of them) at 55%
    Kebab shops at 53%
    Indian restaurants at 48%
    Fish and Chip shops at 28%
    Italian restaurants at 21%

    I honestly never knew the Chinese were so bad aswell.

    Well, unless you can find me a study that says this is wrong with a bigger sample size this is all we have to go on at the present time. I'll happily admit that I would love to see more studies done on this

    I was amazed at that myself - why on earth that was allowed to happen, I will never know...

    My opinion on things: if you live in Britain and work in arestaurant in Britain, you should conform to British health and hygiene standards. It's alright if you don't want to use toilet paper in Asia (or whatever place that religion is kept to), but in Britain, you should do things how it is expected to be done in Britain.
    It happened because the authorities can't monitor every single establishment every single minute... common sense dude.

    Na you're alright, live and let be. If it doesn't harm anyone then it has nowt to do with you. It seems as if you don't realise that this story has nothing to do with the fact he doesn't use toilet paper. It was about where he was storing the cleaning equipment, in this case the bottle in the kitchen, storing a toilet roll that was in use would have had the same effect. It's probably not so uncommon, like a chef who uses a phone in the toilet and put it down in kitchen. The only thing that could possibly have made it worse is if there was a decent chance the bottle could be utilised in the food preparation.

    You must be thick if you think that not washing your hands after defecating isn't backwards.
    Who the hell does that though?

    "because he doesn't use toilet paper for 'cultural reasons"


    I can't even believe I read that.

    I know there's something like this in the Islamic Hadiths about not using toilet paper but Jesus Christ, this is disgusting.
    Do you have a source for this?

    What he does with his crap is up to him. But blimey, it doesn't mean that he a) doesn't maintain hygienic practice and b) doesn't wash his hands.

    You shouldn't call food "disgusting", you clearly lack respect.

    If you read the Daily mail and you believe everything it reports is bore line truthful, you need to start seeking out your news from somewhere else. A month ago the Daily Mail reported a woman who forgot to take her tampon out for 9 days, do you believe that was true? Do you really? They PAY for stories, most of them are BS or extremely exaggerated like this one. Also very biased, you should be bit more intuitive when reading your news.

    Yes, congratulations to my mum. She runs a brilliant business.

    Using water is cleaner in south-Asian cultures, it's considered disgusting to just use toilet paper, most people use both (I assume the man also used both). Just using tissue paper alone is actually very disgusting.

    If he used a bottle to clean himself with water, why wouldn't he wash his hands? If he uses water once, it's only natural to open the tap again...

    As someone who read the Daily Mail for 10 years* I get really annoyed at reading utterly biased views on it on this forum.

    I was going to let your criticism of it go however as I've come to realise that defending the DM is a complete waste of time and that even students or graduates are as biased as anyone else.

    But then you mentioned a specific story.

    So looked it up and while I'm not going to stick my neck out and say it's in fact true,what I can say is that if it's not true then it's not the Daily Mails fault!

    Seeing as they have pictures and quotes of the young woman and even have a picture of her,apparently taken in hospital,with a bloated stomach.

    Maidstone hospital it apparently was.


    According to the DM she wanted to publicise this unfortunate episode as she wanted the effects and symptoms of toxic shock syndrome to become more widely known.

    Which by the way is one of the things the DM does really well.

    Informs people about various illnesses and tells them what they can do to recognise and/or prevent them.

    As I say though,it could all be a hoax -or exaggerated as you say-but not perpetrated by the DM, and if it saves a life.....


    One other thing ,the DM website is aimed at the type of person who watches 30 second adverts regularly just to watch a footballer score a goal or a celeb do something.

    The newspaper itself is aimed primarily at intelligent,older middle class women.

    *no I wasn't a typical DM reader.The main reason I read it was because I wasn't ready for 'broadsheets'and the DM was easily the best value for money with lots of articles about books and history.

    Cheers

    I Don't need religion or culture to teach me toilet Etiquette how to clean myself up.


    I use something called common sense
    So if its "common sense", why are you not using toilet paper to clean yourself instead of a shower...
