    You only have to ride on the tube to realise how damn unhealthy the air is (understandable due to its age and constraints, though). There's a common stat that a typical single journey on the tube is the equivalent of smoking 4 cigarettes.
    I don't know where you got that stat from, but unfortunately it's probably true. Whenever I go on a long journey on the Piccadilly line, I can blow my nose and black stuff will come out. It's really not nice :/.

    Air quality isn't fantastic in central tbh (Guy's is almost as central as you can get!). You'll probably notice the air quality more if you don't live in the city, and if you tend to walk everywhere: personally I can say breathing in exhaust for 30mins walking down the Fulham Road to Imperial every day isn't particularly pleasant :K:. I imagine that's the same in any large city mind.

    oh no
    maybe i should just wear a mask wherever I go :cool: i don't think many people in London do that though?
