Australia and ionising radiation – National Skin Cancer Action Week

National Skin Cancer Action Week 21 – 27 November With summer on the doorstep, National Skin Cancer Action Week (21 to 27 November) aims to raise awareness of skin cancer in Australia.“Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, with more than 430,000 new cases each year,” said Cancer Council Australia CEO, Professor Ian Olver. “Sun protection needs to be part of our everyday routines and the Cancer Council range of products has been carefully designed to make looking after ourselves in the sun easy, practical and fashionable.”The major cause of skin cancer is too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Skin can burn in as little as 15 minutes in summer sun so it is important to protect skin from UV radiation. Press Release: National Skin Cancer Action Week 21 – 27 November
