Skin Cancer

Skin CancerMelanin is a pigment produced by the skin cells in the top layer of skin. Tanning of skin is the result of more melanin production due to exposure of skin to uv radiation. This is not the sign of healthy skin but rather the skin cells being in trauma. Tanning can contribute to DNA damage, premature skin ageing and skin cancer.

When we expose our skin to sun over and over, the uv radiation increase and can cause permanent and irreversible skin damage and can lay the groundwork for skin cancer to develop later in life, even when no sunburn is experienced

Anyone can develop skin cancer. But let us look at some risk factors that contribute in developing cancer.

Risk factors:

Skin type – People with fair skin are at higher risk than people with naturally dark skin.

Moles and freckles – if you have a great number of freckles or moles, you are at higher risk of skin cancer.

Solarium use – Solariums use both UVA and UVB radiation to tan the skin , which are very dangerous to the skin. UV radiation from a solarium is three times as strong as the midday summer sun.

Family history and hereditary factors – these play an important part in your risk of developing skin cancer.

Use a combination of the five sun protection measures to reduce your risk:

Slip – slip on protective clothing.

Slop – some SPF (sun protection factor) 30+ sunscreen.

Slap – on a hat that protects your face, head, neck and ears.

Seek – shade.

Slide – sunglasses on.

As discussed in previous posts balance is the key. If you have enough antioxidants to balance the amount of free radicals produced, the body is protected from oxidative stress, and by preventing oxidative stress you can avoid developing cancer.

Antioxidants and their supporting nutrients also optimize your body’s natural repair system and natural immune system. So even if you have started down that road to developing a cancer, your body has the best opportunity to either repair or destroy that mutated cell.

Nearly all of whatever you mention happens to be supprisingly accurate and that makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. Your piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this subject matter goes. Nevertheless there is one position I am not really too comfy with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual main theme of the issue, permit me observe just what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Nicely done.
