"If a child gets one burn, or two burns, in his childhood the instance of cancer later on in life when they are 30 or 40 or above, is much more significantly higher. Only one or two sunburns can cause a lot of damage to the skin, that can lead to skin cancer."

Hospital burns units have seen a sharp increase in sunburn cases as a heatwave engulfs Britain, bringing soaring temperatures of up to 30 degrees Centigrade (86 degrees Fahrenheit), broadcaster Sky News said.
In a survey conducted by Sky, two thirds of hospitals with specialist burns units said they had seen a rise in the number of children with severe sunburn.
11-year old Matthew suffered one despite wearing high-protection sunscreen cream.
He was receiving treatment at a burns unit in Birmingham, in the English Midlands.
"We used factor 50 and it still burnt so the only thing I can suggest is 'always keep your t-shirt on, never take it off, whether you want a suntan or not'," his mother, Caroline Breydin told Sky.
A burns and plastics consultant at the same Birmingham hospital said that one bad burn as a child could lead to complications much later in life.
"If a child gets one burn, or two burns, in his childhood the instance of cancer later on in life when they are 30 or 40 or above, is much more significantly higher," said Naiem Moiemen.
Meanwhile, thousands took the opportunity to enjoy a day on the beach in the sun in Weymouth, in southwestern England.
The heatwave, the longest for seven years, is expected to continue into next week, according to forecasters.
In some areas, temperatures will surge to 32 degrees Centigrade (89.6 degrees Fahrenheit) or possibly 33 degrees Centigrade (91.4 degrees Fahrenheit), according to British news agency the Press Association (PA).
