May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month!
Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner.  This means we all start spending more time outside.  Remember, you are your own first line of defense against the sun's damaging rays. Seek shade or avoid the sun all together between 10am and 4pm. Use quality sunscreen with at least 30 SPF and reapply at least every 2 hours.  Clouds do not screen out the damaging UVA and UVB rays.  See our library for more information on the different kinds of skin cancer and how to do your own self screening.
Have a Sun Safe day!

The World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer has moved UV tanning beds to its highest cancer risk category, "CARCINOGENIC TO HUMANS." There is evidence linking indoor tanning to melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.

Tanning beds filter out UVB light, but expose the user to UVA. UVA light is a class 1 carcinogen and should be avoided.

A tan is not a sign of health, it's a sign that your skin to trying to protect itself from UV radiation!
