mends avoiding sun exposure from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., this is actually when most teams are out practicing. According to Dr. Adams, "Training and playing in the mid-day sun puts athletes at a greater risk for skin cancer, a potentially life-threatening condition that affects one in five Americans. Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is the number one cancer killer of women ages 25 to 29. Outdoor athletes face double jeopardy because perspiration on the skin lowers the minimal erythema dose, the lowest UV light exposure needed to turn the skin barely pink. Skiers are in an even worse situation as there is less atmosphere on the high slopes than at sea-level to filter UV light, and the UV rays are reflected back up by the white snow."
