    A primary prevention approach, that is, reduction in sunlight exposure, is being considered by an increasing number of organizations.

    The public health approach to primary prevention of skin cancer, including melanoma, requires an understanding of the role of sunlight in the production of these tumours.

    Despite a clear understanding of exactly how sunlight does thisn there is enough epidemiological and laboratorye vidence to suggest a broad approach to the problem.

    This includes reduction of sunlight exposure, particularly in childhood and adolescence.

    It also suggests the need to recommend avoidance of suntanning and particularly the excessive exposures that lead to suburn.
