The Melbourne model and swimwear designer is speaking out against the ban, saying tanning bed users should have the right to choose whether to use them.
According to figures, about 281 melanomas, 43 melanoma-related deaths, and 2572 squamous cell carcinomas a year in Australia are caused by solarium use — costing the healthcare system around $3 million.
public health committee chairman Craig Sinclair strongly denied the suggestion that solariums could be used in moderation, saying “no solarium is safe”.
Lee concedes she’ll switch to fake tan once the ban is enforced in about three weeks but said she was aware of tan addicts who had bought their own sunbeds for private use.
