- Charles de Gaulle - France - sun
Destination: good health
From plane crashes to exotic illnesses, the resident medical team at Charles de Gaulle airport has dealt with every type of travel emergency. This week in HEALTH we spend a morning with the men and women who manage the health needs of sixty million passengers each year.
Next, can just imagining beautiful holiday destinations improve our health? We visit a hospital ward in Paris where patients are using positive visualisation to treat - and even help to cure - serious illnesses.
And finally we take a closer look at the cost of a summer in the sun. Exposure to even small amounts of sunlight increases the risk of developing melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. Two new treatments, however, have been developed to prolong survival in patients suffering the deadliest form of the disease.
