Rickets For All!

A new study shows that if we mail sun-protection kits, which contain information about the dangers of exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays and skin cancer, as well as swim shirts, hats and sunscreen, to the whole country we can finally protect children from sun ANY exposure. “This is a low-cost, effective intervention that could be an important component in efforts to reduce sun exposure in children during the years that they acquire much of their risk for skin cancer,” the study’s first author, Lori Crane, investigator at the Cancer Center and chair of the department of community and behavioral health at the Colorado School of Public Health, said in a news release from the center.    The study showed that those who received the sun-protection kits gained more awareness about sun exposure and had greater adherence to sun-protective behaviors.  Get ready for a world of pasty, fat kids with rickets!   I am so embarrassed by this kind of research.  Maybe we can create a rocket to destroy the sun altogether?
