One in every eight children aged three suffers from tooth decay, stark new figures show. Some 12% of three-year-olds in England have decaying teeth as parents increasingly give their children sugary foods and drinks, health officials warned. These youngsters have an average of three teeth that are decayed, missing or filled, Public Health England (PHE) found.
We talk to partner and clinical director at Toothbeary Practice Richmond, Dr Nicole Sturzenbaum to hear her top tips for promoting good dental health in children.
The number of boys aged from 11 to teenage years suffering from mental health problems is on the rise, a head teacher has warned. Bernard Trafford, head of the Royal Grammar School (RGS) in Newcastle upon Tyne, said he was aware of a number of boys in northern private schools suffering anorexia as a result of the pressure to succeed academically.
Teenager Jack Jacobs, who developed depression and an eating disorder at the age of 14, joins us for an interview alongside his mum Jennie and Dr Hilary Jones.
A Cancer Research UK report out today reveals that 46% of cancers in England are diagnosed "too late" when they are at an advanced stage, and are therefore much harder to treat.
The report also estimates that if the best national levels of early diagnosis were delivered across the country, an extra 5,000 cancer patients would be alive five years after diagnosis. Dr Hilary joins us to tell us more.
The kids are back at school and this weekend across the country they'll also be back on the pitch as the football season kicks off. We know they need exercise to keep them healthy but experts are warning a skill as simple as heading the ball could be doing them major long-term brain damage.
We're joined now by Dawn and Claire Astle who's father former England and West Brom player - Jeff died from brain trauma caused by heading heavy footballs.
Because we're celebrating Dr Hilary's 25th year in television we couldn't just stop the party when the show ended this morning!
So we invited members of the Good Morning Britain and Lorraine teams to join us for a celebratory breakfast!
Of course there’s been the sad things and the campaigns which have had good effects but also the fun things we’ve had so much fun over 25 years… Visiting people in their own homes, being invited [into people’s houses] and talking about health issues.
Good Morning Britain's editor Neil Thompson said a few words as well as Lorraine Kelly who reminded us of a few funny stories from the early days of his career!
And, of course, we had cake!
