Seattle, a hub for malignant melanoma? Time To Get Sunwise!

Despite all the rain, there seems to be enough shine, making Washington, a hot spot for sun-linked skin cancer malignant melanoma, according to the Environmental// Protection Agency.

The EPA's has embarked on a SunWise Program enabling free kits to schools that comprise of 40 activity cards and a white Frisbee that changes color to purple when exposed to the sun's UV rays.

Demonstrators apply different sunscreen and skin lotions on the frisbee’s white disc, and this is then exposed to the sun, to see if the lotions have really worked. Obviously if there is enough protection, the areas would remain white and not turn purple.

The EPA is targeting children because sunburn takes nearly 20 years to develop into skin cancer. The danger lurking, is that UV rays are capable of damaging skin within 15 minutes of exposure and just five or more sunburns could elevate a person’s skin cancer risk by almost double. It would really help, if children were aware early even before they reach their teens about the dangers of sunburns so that they could adequately protect themselve.
