Should sex and relationship education be compulsory in primary schools?

Listen to the cry for help from children

– Maria Miller speaks on children's desire to learn about sex and relationship education

More than eight in 10 Britons think sex and relationship education should be compulsory in schools, according to new research. The finding comes as the Government faces increasing calls for the classes to be mandatory amid growing evidence young people are facing widespread sexual harassment and abuse.

Former minister for women and equalities Maria Miller will call for compulsory sex education in primary and secondary schools and to not allow parents to withdraw.

Maria told us: "By the time children have reached 10 or 11 they would have seen pornography online for the first time, and one in five would have been subject to cyber bullying."

Could burnt food increase the risk of cancer?

Over cooking is harmful

– Dr Hilary

Roasting and frying starchy foods could increase the risk of cancer, a Government body has said. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a public warning over the risks of acrylamide - a chemical compound that forms in some foods when they are cooked at high temperatures (above 120C).

We were joined by Dr Hilary who told us the FSA can't tell exactly how much exposure is needed to get cancer, but he did leave us with advice to reduce the risk:

  • Cut down exposure by not overcooking
  • Store raw potatoes in cool dark places, not the fridge
  • Follow the instructions on packaged food, it is designed to minimise exposure
