We have recently become aware of some sobering facts about skin cancer that we are compelled to share with our readers around the world:
~1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their life times. (We expect the world wide statistic
is at least as bad)
~ Each hour one person dies from skin cancer.
~ Skin cancer is most deadly for African Americans, Asians, and Latinos.
~More than 90% of skin cancer is caused by sun exposure.
~ Skin cancer accounts for more than 50% of all cancers combined.
~One blistering sun burn doubles your risk, especially during childhood.
If seeking to reduce your exposure to chemical sunscreens we recommend UV protective
clothing like offered from a new company called UV Skinz, founded by a woman whom
lost her 32 year old husband to skin cancer. The company specializes in swim shirts for both
adults and children with 50+SPF protection woven into the fabric, all with breathable fabric
designed to wick moisture from your body and allow freedom of movement for sporting activity.
