Health Tip: Avoid UV Radiation

 

(HealthDay News) — Ultraviolet (UV) radiation coming from the sun is a major cause of skin cancer.

The American Cancer Society suggests how to minimize the effects of UV rays:

  • UV rays are strongest between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. If you must be outside during this time, stay in the shade as much as possible.
  • Always wear sunscreen when you’re outside.
  • Cover most parts of your skin with clothing.
  • Wear a hat to protect your head, neck and face.
  • Wear sunglasses that are designed to block UV rays.
