PROTECT AGAINST SKIN CANCER

Yes, I know this post has nothing to do with the kitchen and/or food but it is timely advice as we head into the summer months so I am choosing to share it anyway. Skin cancer can so easily be prevented by taking precautions when in the sun. I have never had skin cancer, thank God, but I have had two types of cancer. Believe me, do everything you can to prevent any type of cancer.

According to researchers in Australia who followed more than 1,600 adults for over a decade, one could reduce the risk of getting melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, by 50% by using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 16 daily on the head, neck, arms, and hands.
