This is a dangerous claim. There's more harm in sunshine than just a sunburn that might last a few days. I was raised in sunny Australia and when I left school we moved to not-so-sunny Ireland. After about 20 years there, I was diagnosed with melanoma. My doctor said it was due to my childhood exposure decades before.

Another point is ethnic sensitivity. Aren't Celtic peoples like the Irish more sensitive to sun cancers than say the Mediterranean people.
