Left side skin cancer…

Did you know that more skin cancers are found on the left side of the head and neck than on the right side? This was financing in a study published in the Dec 201o Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, which points to the importance of minimizing sun exposure while driving.  When we drive we are exposed to UVA rays both from the front windshield and from the drivers side window.  Car travel is at an all time high and according to the Skin Cancer Foundation “UVA rays can easily penetrate car windows making both drivers and passengers susceptible to skin damage and skin cancer.  How to prevent it?  Wear sunscreen sunglasses, long sleeved shirt, and I have gone as far as taking my car to Sonny’s in Peabody, MA (sonnysglasstinting.com) and had my two front windows and a six inch strip at the top of my windshield covered in a legal tint that locks 90% of the suns damaging rays on top of the factory tint my car came with.  It makes a huge difference and you can’t even tell the windows are tinted!
