The problem is that most people do not realize the dangers associated with this condition. These include even skin cancer. That is why preventing sunburn should be your number one priority when going outside on a sunny day.
Thu, 21 Jul 2011 07:42:25 -0500Deficient sunlight is nothing but a death trap. It has been known for several decades that those living mostly in the outdoors, at high altitudes, or near the equator have the lowest incidence of skin cancers. And as the evidence suggests, those who work under artificial lighting have the highest incidence of skin cancers.
Wed, 13 Jul 2011 16:18:24 -0500Since oil extraction from corn, grains, and seeds became possible 80-90 years ago, consumption of polyunsaturated and unsaturated fats (thicker oils) as salad and cooking oils has increased dramatically in the industrialized world. The average person today consumes 16 times more of these refined, processed fats and oils than a person did 90 years ago. The lack of exercise, fresh air, and foods rich in nutrients make it even less possible for a human being to cope with such large amounts of unnatural fats. They impair the digestive power and lead to a buildup of toxins and subsequent crises of toxicity. The presence of excessive amounts of free radicals indicates that the body is full of toxins. Once they enter the skin tissue, even short-term exposure to ultraviolet light can burn and damage skin cells.
Tue, 12 Jul 2011 09:32:06 -0500Choosing the best sunscreen can be frustrating and confusing without some basic sunscreen facts. There's a rising rate of skin cancer and with all the skin cancer awareness being spread, pouring on the sunscreen is getting more popular. As a skin cancer survivor, this is the top sunscreen of my choice and I'll tell you why.
Tue, 21 Jun 2011 12:58:11 -0500Athletes spend a lot of their time outside training and preparing. Because of this time outside, their skin is exposed to the sun and its rays for many hours at a time. While most of the time this exposure may not be harmful, over time the rays of the sun will cause damage to the skin and this damage can possibly be severe. Sunscreen for athletes is highly recommended because while the athletes are training their bodies, they need to be aware of the damage that can be done to their skin.
Mon, 20 Jun 2011 09:14:01 -0500Did you know that Mohs surgery is not the only way to successfully treat skin cancers? Surgery on the nose, ears, eyelids or lips may cause disfigurement or require reconstructive surgery under a general anesthetic to maintain the natural appearance. Brachytherapy with the Flexitron system is an effective alternative treatment for BCC (Basel Cell Carcinoma) and SCC (Squamous Cell Carcinoma) skin cancer and avoids the need for reconstructive surgery.
Mon, 20 Jun 2011 08:51:45 -0500Melanoma, the most deadly skin cancer, is on the rise. New promising treatments are available for the first time after decades of research.
Wed, 15 Jun 2011 14:26:56 -0500I have always known that the medical hysteria about sunlight exposure and skin cancer was a hoax. I mean come on, it just didn't make any sense. Humans have been around for hundreds of thousands of years, continually exposed to sunshine and until just recently, little or no skin cancer problems.
Fri, 10 Jun 2011 09:14:45 -0500As we all know that Mohs surgery is an effective procedure for treating several types of skin cancers. Also the procedure is effective to limit the amount of healthy tissue and skin removed that is particularly helpful to people who should remove the cancer in a cosmetic way on the important parts of body like face or neck.
Wed, 08 Jun 2011 07:38:20 -0500For any of us who have known victims of melanoma, we realize that a cure or permanent solution and break through is needed. Well, it appears human scientists are now well on their way to solving this challenge once and for all. There are many cancers that are not death sentences, but late stage melanoma is, well, until now it seems, because scientists have made a rather incredible break through, which gives researchers looking for cures in other types of cancers a little bit of inspiration.
Mon, 06 Jun 2011 10:42:07 -0500The Dermatologist had done a complete exam during my yearly checkup. He asked if there was anything I would like to have checked. I said, "It's only a small whitehead but it bothers me when I wipe sweat away." Oh, was I wrong. So very,very wrong.
Fri, 03 Jun 2011 10:37:46 -0500A ranking of more than 500 sunscreen products found that 92 percent did not provide satisfactory sun protection in terms of safety and efficacy. The study, conducted by Environmental working Group (EWG), a Washington-based nonprofit organisation, points the finger at a surge in exaggerated SPF claims above 50 and new disclosures about potentially hazardous ingredients.
Fri, 27 May 2011 08:01:29 -0500When sunlight hits your skin your body begins to produce vitamin D, this is very important for your body, and those who are vitamin D deficient can end up with all sorts of illnesses. Your body works better when it has sunlight, and that shouldn't surprise anyone because humans have evolved living on the surface of the planet along with the Sun. Of course, there are those who are light-skinned and burn very easily, and this is not good for you, as it can cause skin cancer due to free radicals forming.
