EDINBURGH, Scotland, July 3 (UPI) -- Scotland has the highest skin cancer rate in the United Kingdom due to widespread unsafe tanning practices, British medical experts said.

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain said a YouGov survey of more than 1,000 Scots found one in five respondents had participated in binge, or excessive, tanning, while four in 10 said they had tried tanning with cooking oil, moisturizers or other substances not approved by medical experts, The Glasgow Herald reported Friday.

This is probably more due to such a large population of fair skinned people. If they spend some time educating and offering tanning products everyone can afford.....it should take care of the problem.
