Extreme heat or extreme cold, but extrememe it is! It is almost unbearable in the Hartbeespoort area. You cannot afford to ignore the SLIP on a shirt, SLOP on sunscreen and SLAP on a hat campaign. According to Dr. Dagmar Whitaker skin cancer is more common than all other cancerns combined. Reapplying sunscreen may not always be a priority when you standing outside having a braai. When skin absorbs an excess of UV rays, it can change the structure of DNA and turn it into an abnormal or cancerous cell. The more sun exposure children receive, the greater their chances of long-term skin damage. 80% of sun damage takes place before the age of 21. You don’t have to be close to the ozone hole to adopt the Australian Slip-Slop-Slap sun protection campaign.
It is our duty as human beings to try and restore the balance. Go green. Save water.
