With summer in full swing here in the North America, it’s a great time to shed some light on UV safety. UV (ultra-violet) rays are a type of radiation emitted by the sun. UV rays come in two forms (A and B). And unless you take some simple safety precautions, both can do significant damage to your body.

In fact, excessive sun exposure can lead to vision problems and eye damage, premature skin aging, skin cancer, and even suppressed immune system. The good news is that practicing UV safety is not difficult. It involves some common sense measures such as covering up and staying in shaded areas between the hours of 10:00 am and 4:00 pm; and using the right sun screen in the right amount.
