  • Sunburn to Sun Poisoning

    New Sunscreen Labelling Regulations – Broad Spectrum:  Effective June 18, 2012, standard test established for over-the-counter (sold without a prescription) sunscreen products re:  Broad Spectrum -provide protection against both ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) and  Ultraviolet A radiation (UVA). Sunburn is primarily caused by UVB.

    Both UVB and UVA can cause sunburn, skin cancer, and premature skin aging.  A certain percentage of a broad spectrum product's total protection is against UVA.  Sunscreens labeled as both "Broad Spectrum" and "SPF 15" (or higher) not only protect against sunburn, but, if used as directed with other sun protection measures, can reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging.

  • Urgent Need for Blood and Platelet Donors

     

    The American Red Cross is facing a looming blood shortage, leading to an urgent need for donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give. Donations were down approximately 8 percent over the last 11 weeks, resulting in about 80,000 fewer donations than expected.

     

    With schools out of session and many regular donors busy or on vacation, it’s important to remember that patients don’t get a break from needing blood — the need is constant.

     

    Many people say they don’t give blood or platelets because they were never asked. Consider yourself asked! Please roll up a sleeve and give blood for patients in need and help prevent an emergency shortage. For more information or to find a nearby donation opportunity, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
