You Should Know About the Dangers of Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation

Everyone who likes to go sunbathing or uses a tanning booth should watch this video! It is an outstanding segment from the History Channel on the harmful effects of UVA and UVB irradiation waves on your skin and how they can cause melanoma and other skin cancers. It also discusses the dangers of tanning booths, and the proper use of sunscreens. See my other blog “Cancer Risk of Tanning Beds Equal to Tobacco and Arsenic!

I tell my patients they should listen to their skin and avoid a sunburn which results from an overexposure of ultraviolet irradiation from the sun or artificially from a tanning booth.
