Re: Skin Cancer Is On The Rise
Coincidentally I've just had some small Skin Cancers burnt out last week.
We all tend to go for the Baseball type caps which give no protection at all to the sides of the melon,so it's always a good idea as mentioned to put on some Sunscreen,however care has to be taken to keep it away from Fly Lines as it really can destroy them.
Even though in The Mountains where we are the temp gets into the 40s Degrees C every Summer.
Also it's not uncommon in the Australian Outback to reach 40-50 Degrees C,& higher (about 104-122 + Degrees F) where we spend a little time as friends have Sheep & Cattle Properties.
We have a high rate also of Skin Cancer thankfully there's heaps of continual warnings & it's even compulsorary for all the School Children to all wear hats.
So the bottom line is if you go out in the Sun wear a Good Hat Clothes which cover & protect from being burnt as well as what we say Slip Slop Slap,which is the slogan The Australian Skin Cancer Foundation uses.
