New findings from the latest Cancer Council National Sun Protection Survey shows that Australians are at the same risk of being sunburnt at sporting venues as they are at the beach. The research shows...
a clear link between sporting venues and sun damage, with 22% of Australians at sports grounds and centres getting sunburnt – as high as the percentage of Australians at the beach, local lake or river who got sunburnt (22%).
Chair of Cancer Council Australia’s Skin Cancer Committee, Louise Baldwin, said over the next three years, 44,000 Australians (40 a day) would be told they had the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma. Almost two in three would be men.
“The figures are startling when you put them in perspective,” Louise said. “Forty four thousand people is more than a full capacity crowd at the Gabba.”
“Cancer Council is reminding Australians that the ‘slip, slop, slap, seek and slide’ message doesn’t just apply at the beach."
