Don’t Let the Sun Get You Down
After the dark days of winter, our bodies gravitate toward these sunny, spring days. It’s only natural to crave sunshine. As we all know, however, too much sun can be detrimental to your health.
Excessive sun exposure contributes to the development of skin cancers, including the potentially deadly melanoma. Fair-skinned people are at highest risk, but even people with darker skins and African-Americans can get skin cancer. A severe sunburn early in life may also increase your risk of developing skin cancer.
