"We need to ban sunburn right now to reduce the risk of aggressive skin cancer."

Australia, especially Bondi Beach, is one of theskin cancerhotspots in the world. I once wrote a documentary "Dying for a Tan" there and talked to people with light skin who are exposing everything in the vicious sun of Australia.

Even though they knew they were courting for the disaster of malignant melanoma, one of the most aggressive cancers, they did not postpone them.

Going to a sunbed session indoors has the same dangerous effects, but the threat of malignant melanoma is still rejected as fear mongering.

Researchers at the University of Manchester claim that banning commercial indoor tanning can significantly reduce melanoma deaths in another way.

The problem is that people with light skin are more likely to get skin cancer because they don't have enough pigment to protect them from UV rays in the sun.

By tracking the expected impact of the ban on 618,000 18-year-olds living in the United Kingdom in 2019, the research team found that the ban on indoor tanning has surprisingly reduced cases of melanoma and melanoma. Showed 207 less. Their lifelong death.

and I We do not ban commercial sunbeds first. Similar legislation in North America, Europe and Australia adds to the growing evidence in favor of a total ban on tanning stores. In the United Kingdom, sunbed use is especially high in the northwest and in cities with high social deprivation.

Its popularity is believed to partially account for the unusually high incidence of melanoma found in young women living in the northwest.

And to my surprise, it is estimated that there are currently about 62,000 children under the age of 18 in the United Kingdom.

Paul Lorigan, a professor of oncology at the University of Manchester, said: "If the NHS invests in public health campaigns to help ban sunbeds, it is estimated that melanoma and other skin cancers will be significantly reduced. Saved and avoid death ... using sunbeds. Anyone who can increase the risk of melanoma by almost 60%.

"Public health campaign-backed ban on indoor sunburn increases melanoma and other skin cancers in the UK. For the first time, it has been very decisive to show that it will be an efficient use of resources to reduce the number of people. ”

Professor Adele Green of the University of Manchester adds: She feels we have succeeded in providing it.

Susanna Daniels, CEO of Melanoma Focus, said: Although rates are rising in the UK, 86% of cases are preventable. It is highly recommended to avoid sunbeds.
