  • What measures can I take to reduce my risk of skin cancer?

    Getting vitamin D from the sun is always good for your skin, however it is important to monitor your exposure as too much can cause serious harm. Sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and any shelter or shade are important precautions that should be taken to help counter extended exposure to UV radiation. Additionally avoid using indoor tanning devices as they emit great amounts of UV radiation.
