Sunbathers Beware of Skin Cancer, Dermatologists Warn

2002, when deaths were slightly higher at about 9,900, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

People should check sunscreen labels to see exactly what the product does; the SPF, or sun protection factor, listed on the bottle only refers to protection against ultraviolet B rays, which primarily cause sunburn.

Chemical-free blockers containing titanium oxide or zinc oxide, which also protect well against both UVA and UVB rays, are a particularly good choice for anyone experiencing r
