Be Safe in the Sun

According to the American Cancer Society, each year more than one million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer – the most common form of cancer.  As the largest organ of the body, your skin serves many functions, including covering internal organs and protecting them from injury. So how can you protect your skin? One of the greatest risk factors for skin cancer includes unprotected and/or excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation (sunlight or tanning booths).  It is vitally important to use sunscreen, but there are so many different choices, it’s hard to know which one to choose. But with new FDA regulations, sunscreen labels are becoming more user-friendly. Check out this clip with Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of GPB’s “Your Health Matters”
