UV Safety

(July 2012)

Summer outdoor activities are fun, but too much UV (ultraviolet) radiation from the sun can cause damage to the skin and eyes. Skin cancer and premature cataracts can be prevented with proper protection from the sun. We are exposed to more UV radiation today because of the depletion of the ozone layer surrounding Earth.

July, which is UV Safety Month, and August are a great time to spread the message about sun, fun, and UV safety to the community.
