Most residents of Longwood are well aware of the negative, long-term effects of the sun. Though it is very important to get enough vitamin D, it is also a true saying, “too much of a good thing can be damaging.”  Thus, it is very importance to protect your skin from the elements, be it the sun, the water, plant life and insects. Mother Nature would recommend plenty of fluids, sunscreen, insect repellent and proper clothing be easily accessible when spending a day outside.

As we age, it’s a good idea to examine our entire bodies to check for discoloration, unusual moles or any changes. Many adults are diagnosed with skin cancer—very treatable, but very high on the list of most diagnosed cancers.

It’s true, skin cancer, or melanoma, is one of the top ten diagnosed cancers in the U.S. In many cases, skin cancer can be avoided, as well as treated successfully when caught early.
