Issues To Consider

September 19th, 2017 | No comments

Ideas worth a review… 

Shame On Me!!  The Fall is here and I missed the opportunity to highlight a “summertime issue”.  But, then again, the school season is just starting so perhaps this review is not missing the mark by too far.  What am I talking about?  It’s an issue that I was not aware of until my wife, Suzanne, brought it up as a major cause among dermatologists or, the “Reducing the Risk of Skin Cancer and Excessive UV Exposure in Children” or SUNucate Act.  Unbeknownst to me, kids attending school are often not allowed to bring or use their own sunscreen without a prescription due to “medication bans” and fears by the school systems of legal entanglements.  It’s outrageous.  Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Preventive Services Task Force have stated unequivocally that policies that prohibit hats or student possession of sunscreen can create barriers to the use of important sun protection methods and cause an increase in sun exposure – which is known as one of the most important factors towards increasing the risk of skin cancer.  The SUNucate Act is an effort to resolve this problem by creating legislative mandates to allow kids to use sunscreen.  So, I encourage all of my readers to encourage your state legislators to introduce the SUNucate Act.  It’s moving forward in several states.  It harkens me back to the days when we started to educate kids about the use of seat belts.  I remember it well.  My daughter, Kylene – when she would climb into the car after picking her up from school – would say, “Daddy, you’re not wearing your seat belt.”  After three or four times of those types of admonishments, I started wearing seat belts.  Now it is part of a routine I go through before starting my car.  That’s what allowing kids to wear sunscreen at school would do.  We will all be better for it because our kids will ask us if we have applied our sunscreen before going out in the sun.  So, teach a child – educate a family!!
