My name is Mark and I am an Malignant Melanoma patient. I have recently set up a petition on the UK gov website calling for them to consider banning Sunbeds as they are being promoted as "Healthy" when this is far from the truth. I would be grateful if you could help me get the message across by signing the petition and sharing with your friends. Many Thanks.
A recent survey
of more than 400 sunbeds and artificial tanning units throughout
England has shown that approximately nine out of ten sunbeds break
This study also highlights that compliance with UV radiation safety
regulations among sunbed operators in England is very poor and
difficult to enforce, and that users are being potentially exposed to UV
radiation at levels higher than those that are deemed safe. Some
countries have already banned the use of Sunbeds and with the recent
drastic rise in levels of Skin Cancer the UK should seriously consider following suit.
