Stay out of the Sun Day is a reminder of the damaging rays of the sun and the importance to stay in the shade. Moderate exposure to the sun contributes to the production of Vitamin D by the body, but excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays has detrimental health effects, including sunburn and increased risk of skin cancer, as well as depressed immune system function and accelerated aging of the skin.
Stay Out of the Sun Day is a good time to perform a total body examination for skin that looks abnormal and has the potential to become a problem. Remember that skin cancer is related to excessive sun exposure, so during July, consider limiting the time spent in the sun.
