Prevention is better than cure
Rates of skin cancer are increasing faster than any other cancer and melanoma (the deadliest form of the disease) is now one of the most common cancers in 15-34 year olds. However, the good news is that over 80% of all skin cancers are preventable. By being sun savvy and following just five simple steps - skin cancer is almost entirely avoidable and this is exactly why sun safety should be taken seriously.
We all enjoy the sun, it makes us feel better and yes, it has some health benefits, but it is very important that we learn to enjoy the sun safely and to take the appropriate precautions to prevent skin damage. This can be anything from premature ageing of the skin, to skin cancer.
Just one case of serious sun burn in childhood or adolescence can more than double a persons risk of getting melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.
So the message really is to be aware, be sun safe and to never burn!
