Editorial: Slip, slop, slap vital

THE weather during Friday's Boxing Day Races was more akin to the weather expected in Melbourne than Warwick.

While there were not quite four seasons in one day, there was certainly a mixture of rain, wind and sunshine.

It was not always out, but when it was, the sun had a ferocious bite in it.

With Christmas and New Year being a time when many have days off work and spend time outdoors, I would like to remind people about being sun safe.

I know it can be a pain to spend a few minutes covering yourself in cream but think of the consequences if you do not.

Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world and the bite of the sun on Friday was a reminder to me of how important it is we slip, slop, slap. Spending those few minutes putting on cream could save you the discomfort of having a skin cancer removed, or even your life.
