Why you're probably not getting enough Vitamin D

Feeling sluggish? New guidance from Public Health England states that unless you're consuming ten micrograms of vitamin D day per day - the equivalent of ten eggs - you should take a supplement to maintain healthy bones and muscles.

The main function of vitamin D is to regulate calcium and phosphate, which are vital for healthy bones, teeth and muscles - but levels of vitamin D deficiency are at a 50-year high. Experts have also become concerned in recent years that rickets is re-emerging in children who do not get enough vitamin D.

Mum saves her unborn baby's life by counting kicks

You just have a hunch - I think it's mother's instincts, more than anything

– Emma Crosby

One Friday night, when TV presenter Emma Crosby was 41 weeks pregnant, she noticed her unborn baby had stopped moving.

Remembering advice given to her by midwives, she tried laying on her left side and drinking a glass of cold water - but once a couple of hours had passed with no further movement, she knew she had to take action.

Luckily, after an induced labour, baby Mary was born healthy - but if Emma hadn't known to phone for help, things could have been very, very different.

Every year in the UK there are more than 3,000 still births, 60 percent of which could have been prevented with better care.

Dr Hilary Jones joins us alongside Emma and little Mary to tell us more.

25% of kids are ordering takeaways

You're brainwashed into thinking that's what you should be eating

– Thomas

Teenagers are facing problems with overly accessible junk food that's much cheaper than healthier food. 25% of teenagers are buying junk food and a third of teenagers say there is a takeaway within 2 minutes of their school.

16 year-old Thomas joins us after having lost three stone by cutting out the junk food and talked to us about the way junk food is so easy to buy.

Concerned parents worry that with chips shops opening at 8am, this can't be good for tempted kids. The Child Obesity Strategy wants to make the labelling of junk food clearer to children, with proper nutritional information. Thomas says he now does all his cooking at home and is far more active.

"No child wants to be overweight or obese - they want to be healthy and look good" says Dr Hilary, calling for improved labelling of nutritional information on food. Thomas, agrees, and says he and his friends would be helped by more education from a young age.

The reality of Lyme disease

The NHS is being criticised for its failure to diagnose and treat sufferers of debilitating Lyme disease. Today campaigners will lobby MPs for immediate changes to what they say is inadequate NHS testing and treatment for the condition.

Early detection is key but many sufferers report having to travel abroad to get a proper diagnosis. Three reports have been commissioned in recent months by the Department of Health - but it will be at least 18 months before they report their findings.

We're joined by Dr Hilary Jones to find out more as well as Phone 4 U founder John Caudwell, who says 11 members of his family has suffered with symptoms the disease for over a decade and believes the government should be doing more to find out more about it.
