Georgina Long: There is nothing healthy about a tan

Georgina Long shared a post on X/Twitter:

“Great to share Richard’s (Richard Scolye) latest clear brain cancer scan results with Ally A Current Affair. Also highlighted the need to stop glamorisation of tanning. A tan = skin cells in trauma. There is nothing healthy about a tan. Let’s aim for zero deaths from melanoma”
