A Definitive Study On The Advantages Of Sunscreen

Applying sunscreen helps to protect against deadly skin cancer. Melanomas are only about 5% of skin cancers but they cause most skin-cancer deaths.

Researchers in Australia studied 1,600 white adults 25-75 for five years. Those who were vigilant in using broad spectrum SPF 16 sunscreen on the head, neck, arms and hands were 50% as likely to develop melanomas.

"Sunscreen also seemed to protect from invasive melanomas, which are harder to cure than superficial melanomas because they have already spread to deeper layers of the skin."

Superb blog post, I have book marked this internet site so ideally I’ll see much more on this subject in the foreseeable future!
