Summer is here and we all probably know the importance of skin protection from the sun. Here are a few basic facts:
· Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the US.
· The incidence has been increasing over the past few decades.
· Usually skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to Ultraviolet Rays. These rays mostly come from the sun but may also come from man-made sources, such as indoor tanning beds, and sun lamps.
The American Cancer Society gives a simple guideline to assist with sun protection.
The catchphrase is:
Slip! Slop! Slap! and Wrap!
· Slip on a shirt...
· Slop on sunscreen...
· Slap on a hat...
· Wrap on sunglasses to protect eyes and skin around them.
