DoomsDave Posted June 23, 2014 Report Share Posted June 23, 2014 As you likely know, melanoma, a nasty form of cancer, is related to too much sun. And, we, as palmy folk live in places where that's a problem. And, having dark skin does not necessarily save you. Bob Marley, the seminal reggae musician, died young from it. What does help, according to this study is using suncreen on babies and small kids (or keeping them in the shade). Hope you find this useful. http://bionews-tx.com/news/2014/06/20/sunscreen-use-in-childhood-prevents-development-of-malignant-melanoma-in-adults-texas-biomed-study-concludes/?utm_source=BioNews+TX+Newsletter&utm_campaign=7934318746-MailChimp&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_180cbeb780-7934318746-69804633 Let's keep our forum fun and friendly.
