Cocaine bust in Byron Shire, 7 men arrested

Police say two separate investigations into the ongoing supply of cocaine in the Byron Bay area have led to charges against seven men.

According to a recent study by the NPD Group, hamburgers are becoming one of the most popular dishes in France, a country otherwise renowned for its haute cuisine. In fact, the study says that three quarters of all French food establishments now sell at least one hamburger, and 80 per cent of those say it’s their best-selling item.

In Australia in 2015 we consumed nearly three times as many hamburgers per capita as they do in France. According to the NPD Group, ‘If in France we have reached 14 burgers consumed per person per year, the UK is on 20, the US on 30 and Australia on 38’, and, Australians, the chances are that you will have fries with that.

Of course, not all burgers are equally as bad as the low-cost offerings served up by your local Hungry Jack’s, Burger King or McDonald’s, and if you’re an Australian you now have the choice of a great range of healthy burgers from a number of independent outlets – so choose wisely!
