Australia and skin cancer
I live in South Australia and I can tell you that you do NOT go out in our summer sun for more than ten minutes at a stretch. You can feel it burning your skin even after a few minutes. Any metal surface exposed to our summer sun soon becomes hot enough to fry eggs on - I know, because I've done it. I also know someone who got a serious burn from picking up a tyre lever he'd left out in the sun all day.
We have many ad campaigns especially in the leadup to summer (around October-November since our summer is December-January) like our well-known "Slip Slop Slap" (Slip on a shirt, Slop on some sunscreen, Slap on a hat) campaign aimed at schoolchildren. Schools here will not allow children outside during breaks in summer unless they have a hat and sunscreen. Despite this, we still have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world, and as a result we lead the world in detecting and dealing with skin cancer early. And that's the key - EDUCATION and EARLY DETECTION. We have no miracle cures for advanced or metastatised melanoma.
When people want to tan themselves here, they generally wear hi-block sunscreen and get under shade after a while, which at least reduces the risk. Chances are Zita did NOT wear sunscreen, did not have the education about the danger of UV rays we do, did not have firsthand experience of what a subtropical sun can do to you, and so she copped it sweet.
Another problem we have is children and pets dying when left in cars parked in the sun. The interior of a car on a hot day here can easily top 70 Celsius (that's 158 degrees for our American friends), hot enough to kill a child or a dog in less than half an hour. Some years ago, our government made it a serious criminal offence to leave a child or animal unattended in a parked car - it's tantamount to manslaughter if a child is involved, and you'd be looking at a long stretch if convicted.
Oh, did I mention also that we're one of the highest CO2 producers in the world despite having such a small population? That's because we NEED our airconditioners!
