Summary
"Contrary to popular belief, using sunscreen does not necessarily produce a "safe" tan. In fact, scientific studies show a high rate of melanoma even in people with the greatest sunscreen use. The truth is that most sunscreen provides protection from UVB rays -- the rays that cause the sunburn you see and feel -- but not from the cancer-causing UVA rays that penetrate more deeply into the skin. As the incidence of malignant melanoma increases throughout the world, Drs. Jill R. Schofield and William A. Robinson tell you What You Really Need to Know about Moles and Melanoma.
