NZ's Cancer Society reacts to WeatherWatch.co.nz's sunburn poll

A few weeks ago we ran a poll asking if you had been sunburnt this summer - we then sent the results to the New Zealand Cancer Society for their feedback as we try to better educate people on sun risks.

The poll wasn't scientific but asked WeatherWatch.co.nz readers whether or not they had been sunburnt over summer and 53% said yes, 8% saying "badly".
