TV star Kennerley raises awareness about need of exposure to sun

Kerri-Anne Kennerley, television personality who appeared for long in a television morning show on Channel Nine and then switched to Channel Nine, has said that she was quite surprised that she would be vitamin D deficient.

Kennerley, a breast cancer survivor, said that as she was an active golfer and a daily walker, but she never realized that she needed more exposure to the sun.

Speaking on the topic, she said, “I was quite amazed. I never thought I would be vitamin D deficient. I never thought I needed it because I play golf. I'm a girl from Queensland who grew up in the sun.”

Raising awareness about the vitamin D deficiency, Kennerley said that the extreme attitude to avoid sun was putting many people in Australia at risk.

As per a fresh study, nearly 50 per cent of Australian women over the age of 40 get no exposure to the sun, and the same group is now at most risk of suffering vitamin D deficiency and health risks like osteoporosis.

Many believe that the increase in the number of vitamin D deficient people is the result of “sun safe” messages. The vitamin D deficiency, which is also called “silent disease,” deprives bones of calcium, which makes bones brittle and more prone to fractures.
