summer vacation and protection

by Beyond Lab

There are a lot of reasons to avoid exposure to strong sunshine. This should be especially noticed during this summer travel time. -- Being tan might make you look good and feel good. But does your body feel good as well? -Most likely not.

There is clear scientific connection between heavy sunburn and melanoma (a kind of skin cancer) occurrence. People received multiple severe sunburns are at higher risk of developing melanoma. Children are at even higher risk.

Protect yourself and your family by doing necessary things, high SPF sunscreen (and reapply every 2 hours if in heavy sunshine), protective clothing and hats, and so on. What's the best solution? -- avoid the sun during peak hours -10am to 2pm.

Just my 2 cents.
