People ignore sunscreen warnings

12th July 2007

People are still not protecting themselves from the sun, despite more being worried about skin cancer than they were a decade ago.

A poll of 2,000 people by the Institute of Cancer Research found more than a third of people do not use sunscreen when sunbathing as the organisation warned that the incidence of melanoma skin cancer will treble in the next three decades, with climate change likely to make the problem worse.

The Institute’s SAFE campaign found that 60% were more worried about skin cancer now than they were 10 years ago but 35% did not use sunscreen.
