Governor Hickenlooper of Colorado (the leanest state in the U.S.) advocated prevention in health care and addressed NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s giant soda ban at The Global Spa Summit. What’s your take on the war on super-sized sugary drinks?
What do John McCain, Ewan McGregor, Elizabeth Taylor and Melanie Griffith have in common? They have all had and beat skin cancer. Melanomas and other skin cancers know no bounds, and can affect people from all walks of life, including the rich and famous. However, when considering the dangerous effects of the sun, it is also important to remember that early detection can be the key to making sure that skin cancer does not progress and spread.
If you spend significant amounts of time in the sun or under UV lights then you are at risk for melanoma. But not everyone has the same level of risk, and despite common belief, if you have a darker complexion or tan without burning you are still susceptible to melanoma. Take a moment to answer the following questions to determine whether or not you are taking risks with your skin.
