July 16, 2008 Sun, Sand and Skin Cancer

Peak summer is a great time to be outside, play sports, hang out at the beach and celebrate the sun. The evidence is mixed about what we do to our bodies in the process. Too little sun and we risk vitamin deficiency and depression. Too much sun and we risk sunburns and skin cancer. More perplexing is the role that toxics are playing in reducing the protective layer of ozone in our stratosphere that in turn increases our exposure to harmful solar rays. Still more perplexing is the rise of artificial tanning systems that simulate the harmful effects of excess solar radiation.

Join our dialogue on Wednesday, July 16 at 10:00 AM as we discuss how much sun is enough and how to restore our protective stratosphere.

We invite your calls and email with questions and comments.
