As we enter into Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month and kick off the summer holiday, the Public Access to SunScreens (PASS) Coalition, an alliance of public health organizations, physician groups, sunscreen manufacturers and concerned citizens, would like to remind all Americans that sunscreen is a critical tool to reduce risk of melanoma, other skin cancers and premature aging.
It has never been more important to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. This year, more than 196,000 Americans will be diagnosed with melanoma and nearly 7,000 will succumb to the disease. The regimen of daily sunscreen, UV protective clothing, sunglasses and limiting exposure to direct sunlight continues to be the best way to reduce risk of melanoma.
