Skin Cancer is Preventable!

We wanted to share some valuable information about Skin Cancer from the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation, please refer to their website for more information & details.

"Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. It is also one of the most preventable.

  • One in every three cancers diagnosed worldwide is a skin cancer, 80-90% of which are caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

  • Over 80,000 cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in Canada each year, more than 5,000 of which are melanoma, the mostly deadly form of skin cancer.

  • Canadians born in the 1990s have two to three times higher lifetime risk of getting skin cancer (1 in 6) than those born in the 1960s (1 in 20).

  • There are more new cases of skin cancer each year than the number of breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers COMBINED!

Skin cancer is caused by overexposure of the skin to UV radiation. The most common sources of UV radiation on the skin are the sun and artificial tanning beds. Though skin cancer is preventable and most often treatable, it remains the most common form of cancer."

Many dermatologists recommend sun protective clothing as your first choice for staying safe and healthy under the sun & UV Couture has plenty of beautiful garments for you to choose from in order to keep you protected from the harmful UV Rays.

Please take a look at this video from the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation- "Go Safe and Stop Skin Cancer" it's time to start making better choices when outdoors.

Luv,
