Use Vanity to Reduce Young People's Sun Exposure: Task Force
Date:11/9/2011

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 9 (HealthDay News) -- Doctors should appeal to young people's vanity to convince them to reduce their sun exposure, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force says in draft recommendations released Wednesday.

Studies reviewed by the task force found that young people were more likely to recognize the hazards of sunbathing when shown sun-related changes on their faces through use of a UV camera or by looking at videos and booklets that depict sun-damaged skin. Half-hour counseling sessi
