San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 7, 2004
SunGrubbies.com, a California company dedicated to providing education and products in the prevention of skin cancer, announced today the release of an enhanced online Health Resource section devoted to information on winter skin cancer dangers and prevention tips for residents and visitors in the Southern U.S.
ÂMillions of winter sun-seekers are unknowingly jeopardizing their healthÂ, reports http://www.sungrubbies.com owner, Marta Phillips. ÂIronically, itÂs very possible that UV light can cause more damage in the winter because people don't normally think of sun protection or skin cancer during the colder months of the year. And snow on the ground, high altitude and some medications increase the danger that winter time exposure can lead to painful sunburn and skin cancer or Malignant Melanoma.Â
The new online resource site, packed with valuable information on the skin cancer danger signs, latest research and prevention, is available for free by visiting http://www.sungrubbies.com/healthresources.htm.
With the incidence of skin cancer rising in the U.S., the use of only sunscreen can provide a false sense of security, encouraging people to stay in the sun longer, and increasing the dangers associated with overexposure to ultraviolet rays. The solution is covering your skin with items specifically designed to protect you from the harmful rays, including hats, bandanas, gloves, umbrellas, UV approved sunglasses and clothing specially designed and UV rated for sun protection.
Phillips goes on to add, "Good sun habits need to be a way of life for optimum health and to reduce the skin cancer dangers associated with UV radiation. By offering high quality, fun and great looking skin protective products and education, http://www.sungrubbies.com is thrilled to be part of helping everyone achieve that goal".
SunGrubbies.com, a California company dedicated to providing education and products in the prevention of skin cancer was founded by Marta Philips after she learned that regular clothing does not provide adequate skin cancer protection, noting that the average T-shirt blocks only about 50% of the sun's ultraviolet radiation. The answer she found is specially designed sun protective clothing for adults and children, which can be found at http://www.sungrubbies.com.
