CANCER: A DRIVING FORCE
How time spent in your car can affect your chances of getting skin cancer
A study at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine recently found a direct correlation between the amount of time spent behind the wheel and skin cancers on left arms and hands and the left side of the neck and head, which are more exposed to sunlight when you drive.
To avoid overexposure to sunlight and UV radiation when outside, the American Cancer Society suggests:
Wear long sleeves, long pants and a hat
Stay in the shade
Use sunscreen-even if it's cloudy
