Recognizing National Summer Sun Safety Month
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so it’s not a surprise that skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer, with about 3.5 million cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer diagnosed in the United States each year. According to the Skin Care Foundation, more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined. Sun damage is a serious concern. It is important to take the correct precautions when going out into the sun because ultraviolet radiation (UV) exposure can damage your skin.
