 The ABCs of Sun Protection 

Most of us like to be out in the sun. That’s why sunscreen and other safety measures are key to protecting your skin from aging and cancer. The FDA recommends using a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Also look for broad spectrum on the label. That means both harmful ultraviolet A and B rays are blocked. Remember: SPF plus broad spectrum equal healthy fun in the sun. Visit www dot FDA dot Gov slash sunscreen (www.fda.gov/sunscreen) for more information.

SONGS FOR SOUND

Did you know that hearing loss is the third most common chronic health condition in the US? About 48 million adults experience some degree of hearing loss, in part due to loud noises. Consistent exposure to moderately loud sounds, as well as exposure to a single loud sound, can cause irreversible damage. Walk away from noisy places, turn down the sound when using ear buds, wear ear plugs to block the noise if your job exposes you to loud sounds and eat a healthy diet to provide your inner ears with nutrients. This has been a message from Songs for Sound, UnitedHealthcare and this station. For more information visit songsforsound.org.
