July is National Ultraviolet Safety Month
July is designated as National Ultraviolet (UV) Safety Month. According to the American Cancer Society, individuals with a high level of exposure to UV rays from the sun have an increased risk of skin cancer, which is the most prevalent type of cancer in the country. It is important to note that despite these statistics, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer and can be avoided by reducing one's exposure to UV radiation. As such, I would like to share some important information on the necessary precautions to take in order to safeguard against the damaging effects of UV radiation this summer as recommended by the United State Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

One of the most important ways to protect oneself from overexposure to UV radiation is to understand the risks. While the sun emits UV rays no matter the season, exposure is greatest during the summer months, which also coincides with a time of increased outdoor activity for most people. As one of the most popular tourism destinations in the state, this is especially true in our area as both locals and visitors alike spend more time outside participating in recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking and swimming. It is also important to note that the sun's UV rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. As such, HHS recommends seeking shade when possible during these hours to limit exposure.  Read the full article.
