Sweden in skin cancer world top 4

2018-09-05 09:21 #0 by: Niklas

Only New Zealand, Australia and Switzerland have more skin cancer cases per capita than Sweden. Swedes love sun and when the dark winter is over we try to make up for the lack of sunlight by getting to much of it without enough protection.

Luckily for those affected, Sweden spends a lot of money on skin cancer treatment.

I'd have never had guess that Sweden is in the top 5, Australia comes at no suprise. 

All the best, Leia

Wow. I guess the cooler weather gives a false sense of security. I am more cognizant of using sunblock when I am in California. 

Happy creating!

It's easy to fool yourself in March when the winter snow is melting away, the sun is shining and the temperature reaches 15˚C. That's when the sun is also most dangerous.
