| AND FINALLY| LAST WORD Getting out in the sunshine is good for your health – it’s Be sure to official. Dr Chris says: ‘We stock up on vitamin D all feel better in the sunshine – it’s not just psychological. ‘When you’re out in the sun, the rays act on your body’s vitamin D factory, which is your skin. If the sunlight isn’t there, you’re not making this vital vitamin which means you could be deficient in it. As you age, a deficiency becomes more likely. ‘Everybody should be out in the sun for 15 minutes a day, every day – that’s all it takes to top up your whole reserve of vitamin D. It’s not just bones this vitamin helps; it’s been linked to help against cancers, heart attacks and multiple sclerosis (MS). In cases of MS, research shows that the less sunshine there is the more incidences there are of the disease. In the UK, MS is more prevalent in the north than the south. ‘Vitamin D is rapidly becoming the wonder vitamin – research is coming out daily on its benefits. And most people in the UK are deficient in it.’ DR CHRIS ON SUN, COELIAC UK AND HIS GARDENING VITAMIN D DAY N RA MY MABETEVE LLY LI The This Morning doc reveals how all the planning works behind the scenes at his television home ● The show works in teams – it leads to a bit of healthy competition! ‘There are ve days of the show a week and a di erent team for each day. There’s a bit of friendly rivalry in order to get the highest ratings for the week!’ ● Health is now very popular ‘Producers are moved around – they might do three months on a Tuesday, then three months on a Wednesday. When they get a Tuesday, my health slot, they’re over the moon because they know health is a big one.’ ● I write my own briefs for the show ‘Only the chefs and I write our own briefs – researchers write all the rest !’ GOOD TEAM WORK! ‘I REA THIS IN FOLLOWING FOR RULE: “LIVE ’S LIFE DAY TODAY. YESTER D ISTORY AN A H ’S TOMORROWMAKE TERY!” SO, IT ’ MYS THE MOST OF WORDS: Jo Willacy | PHOTOGRAPH: Neil Cooper HAVING JUST MOVED HOUSE, DR CHRIS HAS BEEN BUSY SPRUCING UP HIS NEW GARDEN. ‘I’VE DONE A LOT AND LOST WEIGHT. IT’S THE IDEAL EXERCISE FOR THE OVER 60S. IT CAN BE HEAVY DIGGING OR POTTERING. IT’S GOOD FOR YOU.’ DIGGING DEEP Dr Chris was an ambassador for Coeliac UK (www.coeliac.org.uk) long before his own diagnosis in 2010. ‘When I rang Coeliac UK to tell them I had the condition, the lady I spoke to replied: “Oh, that’s great!” I got no sympathy whatsover!’ He has since been campaigning for better diagnosis of the condition. ‘The way I see it is that every irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) patient who is not getting better on medication, has got coeliac disease – that is, until proven otherwise.’ THE SYMPATHY VOTE www.athomemagazine.co.uk SEPTEMBER 2012 | 153 http://www.coeliac.org.uk http://www.athomemagazine.co.uk
