Hoffs having fun
This morning, a crew of 20 Sydney-siders and Friends of the Earth members dressed up as beach safety icon David Hasselhoff to bring their concerns about the safety of nano-sunscreens to the office of the new Minister for Health, Tanya Plibersek.
Skin safety experts and community groups have long called for new safety testing and labelling of sunscreens produced using nanotechnology. After years of government inaction, today Friends of the Earth and the Health Minister's constituents called in The Hoff. The action coincides with David Hasselhoff's visit to Sydney to star in Celebrity Apprentice.
