Gumtree - stop advertising solariums

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Exposure to artificial sources of ultraviolet (UV) radiation in a solarium (sun bed or tanning bed) causes melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), basal cell carcinoma (BCC) ocular melanoma, eye damage and premature aging of the skin. People have died as a direct result of using them. 

Commercial solariums have been banned in all Australian states and territories. While private use of a solarium is not illegal, everything possible should be done to discourage their sale and use. Accordingly I'm calling on Gumtree to do the responsible thing and ban all "for sale" and "wanted" advertisements related to solariums. 

This really is a matter of life and death.
