As many parents of elementary school aged children can attest… the sun emits ultraviolet radiation. Our sun produces UVA UVB and UVC types of radiation which allows our planet to sustain all that we see around us. However, in the last few decades the natural shield has been eroded away by mans emissions of certain gasses into the atmosphere which has reduced the effective shield against these most hazardous and yet necessary types of radiation. UV radiation has certain implication on human health. From immunity, insulin secretion, blood pressure and even calcium metabolism UVB exposure is a necessity yet many will take advantage of the warmer weather and less clouds to bake themselves in the sun all for that beautiful tan look.
An overexposure to UVB radiation can cause some form of skin cancer. As summer quickly approaches we must protect ourselves and especially our children from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreen is very important especially for those who are outdoor enthusiast. Skin cancer is no laughing matter.
