The sun's ultraviolet radiation

We cannot feel ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and yet it is the major cause of skin cancer.

Australia has some of the highest levels of UV radiation in the world: in fact UV radiation is strong enough to cause sunburn in as little as 10 minutes on a fine January day.

Your skin remembers all the UV exposure you get. It all adds up and increases your long-term risk of skin cancer. Over 2000 Australians die from skin cancer each year.

It’s estimated that if we reduce our lifetime exposure to UV radiation by just 20%, Australia would have about one third fewer cases of skin cancer.

The UV Index will tell you when the uv radiation is doing you harm. It tells you when to cover up and when you don’t need to bother.
