Take good care of the small Danes in the sun
It is important to take extra good care of children in the sun because the cell divison in the skin's pigment cells is at it's highest when the skin is growing early in life. UV radiation can therefore be more harmful to the genetic material in the cells. The more harmful UV radiation children are exposed to early in life. The more likely it is that the damaged cells develop into melanoma later in life.
Everyone should avoid too much sun
Even though childrens' skin is especially sensitive to the sun, grown-ups should be careful in the sun as well. UV radiation from the sun (and sunbeds) are responsible for 90 pct. of all cases of skin cancer and melanoma, and the more radiation you are exposed to - the higher the risk.
