Whilst the "sun smart" campaign of "slip, slop, slap" has had a significant effect in Australia resulting in 50% less sunburn, a side effect may be that "a significant proportion of the Australian population including 23% of women are Vitamin D deficient".

New research in Medical Journal Australia Research is now underway to look at whether skin cancer campaigns have indeed had this effect.
