Under the age 18, getting one bad sunburn doubles the chances of getting melanoma. Melanoma is known as the most serious type of skin cancer that appears when the cells that produce melanin become cancerous. In order to prevent this fatal cancer, parents must be responsible for putting sunscreen on their children. Also, parents should set a good example for their kids. The David Cornfield Melanoma Fund is all for the prevention of Melanoma. The rhetorical effects of pathos, ethos, and logos, from the new family rule advertisement appeals to the idea that we will all be parents someday and will need to be someone to look up to when preventing this cancer.
Self image is very important to many teens, but do they know the harm behind tanning beds? Tanning bed users can be exposed to 5 times more UV (Ultraviolet radiation) than they should from natural sunlight. Melanoma is a skin cancer caused by tanning beds. DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is a additive in tanning lotion that darkenss the skin and can cause prolonged bleeding.
Every person loves to go to a hot beach and go tanning. Every year more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed. (1) Although as we are enjoying ourselves we are actually hurting our bodies extremely. If you are going on a sunny beach vacation be smart about what you are doing. Have you ever thought about that?
Many people around the world enjoy spending time in the sun. The sun is good for you. It has some healthy vitamins that you need, and the sun also makes the earth hot so that we can live. But the sun also has some disadvantages. There are a lot of disadvantages, but the one I will be talking about is getting diagnosed with melanoma. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. There are three different types of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. Melanoma is the deadliest of those three. There are thousands of Americans (and many others) diagnosed with skin cancer every year “The American Cancer Society estimates that at present, more than 135,000 new cases of melanoma in the US are diagnosed in a year. In 2015, an estimated 73,870 of these will be invasive melanomas, with about 42,670 in males and 31,200 in women.” (4).
As the popularity of tanning beds severely increases, so does the rate of young people diagnosed with skin cancer. Tanning beds are used by more than 30 million Americans around the world and 2.3 million of those are teens. While using tanning beds, the teens are exposing themselves to a deadly skin cancer, called melanoma. The rate of melanoma has increased drastically over the last forty years. Multiple states have banned indoor tanning and a number of states have strengthened their constraints on minors tanning in their salons. Although keeping tanning beds legal provides a level of financial protection to those who own them, making them illegal would ultimately protect the health of all consumers.
It can also develop in a single cell when certain genes like BRAF get mutated due to exposure of environmental factors. Which is the most common gene thats related in causing melanoma. When there is damage to the skin from the suns UV rays, or tanning beds it causes mutations in the BRAF gene that can cause the skin cells to uncontrollably multiply and form malignant tumours (Dermnets, 2011). The tumours begin in the melanocytes specialized in making melanin, the pigment carrying skin cells known to give the skin its colour and cause it to tan, by delivering pigment to other cells (Cancer org, 2015). Over exposure to the sun, in particular sunburns are said to be the leading cause of melanoma (Reliant medical group, 2014). Melanoma can start
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer to be found in a population. More than 3.5 million people were diagnosed with skin cancer in the year of 2014. (American Cancer Society, 2015) There are three main types of skin cancer: Melanoma, Basal, and Squamous. (Gardner, 2012) Skin cancer is caused by large amounts of exposed skin to ultraviolet light. For skin cancer to develop, the skin has to absorb large quantities of exposed UV rays. It damages the cells creating the growth of skin cells to repair and replace the damaged ones. The forming of newer cells continue its growth and does not stop, producing a ball of cells, a tumor. (Skin Cancer Foundation, 2015)
Background. Over the past decade there has been an increase in awareness of the negative results of ultraviolet radiation. In the past, the most common way to avoid ultraviolet radiation was the use of topical sunscreens. When a person gets ready sunscreen isn’t the first item they think of. Clothing is considered a necessity for survival, but due to the rise of cancer manufactures have found a way to reduce the exposure of UVA and UVB on the skin with everyday wear. In professional journals, it is noted that dermatologist, meteorologist, biologist and other professionals warned us about UV radiation- they have given us recommendations and now it’s time to listen. (Dubrovski, 2010) The average weight of a cotton t-shirt gives sun protection
Most people, especially in Florida, enjoy going to the beach. When people go to the beach, most of them enjoy laying on the sand, relaxing, catching some good waves, and even playing volleyball. Just thinking about going to the beach makes me want to go right now; however, I will need to put on sunscreen first. If you think getting a sun shower without any protection from the sun is a good idea, then I might suggest you think again. Most people are not aware of the harmful effects the sun can have on their skin. Yes, unfortunately going to the beach can be life threatening. Getting a tan will probably make a persons skin look better, but inside the persons skin, the melanocytes are getting affected. People who expose themselves to the sun very

The large star that we call the Sun can be very helpful by providing us with vitamin D which enlightens our mood and keeps us optimists. Although in some cases sunlight exposure, especially too much of it can be very harmful to our health and skin. There are many different irritations that can be caused from too much sunlight, one of the most popular and common is sunburn. There was a survey and over one third of adults and up to 70% children had said that they have had sunburn in the past year (according to the cdc) 1. Sunburn is when your skin reddens, maybe swells up and sometimes even the blistering or peeling of the skin. This is caused from over exposure to the sunlight and the uv rays it gives off. Sunburn can be very painful as your skin is a valuable part of you and we don’t any other
Melanoma is a cancer of the melanocytes, the cell found in the skin's epidermis that produces melanin. Melanoma most commonly occurs on the trunk or lower extremities. While malignant melanoma is less common than non-melanoma skin cancer , it is considered the most deadly form of skin cancer. This is because melanoma accounts for approximately 75% of deaths associated with skin cancer. In 2013, it is estimated that 76,690 people will be diagnosed with melanoma and 9,480 people will die of melanoma in the United States.
Although our sun is a major light, and heat source, which allows us to live in our universe, the sun can cause and do some serious damages to us human beings and other living things on our planet. The suns EMR can cause small amounts of damage such as a tiny sunburn to greater damages such as cancer. The most common damage EMR gives to human beings is sunburn, but this damage is quite easy to prevent and if not too bad the pain or damage can easily be taken away, for example the solution to prevent sunburn is sunscreen. Sunburn can range from different levels of pain and damage. The least harmful burn is a mild burn that causes your skin to go red and sting which will disappear after a few hours. A worse level of sunburn that causes your skin to blister, swell, into a scarlet color that peels before it heals.

If skin is exposed to sun for a long time and this is repeated, it can cause premature aging and skin cancer. The seriousness of the damage on skin depends on how long someone has been in the sun and the intensity of the
When we think about skin it is important for us to understand what it is we’re addressing. The skin is a really amazing organ, as you probably know; it is one of the biggest organs in the body. The skin is made of five layers itself and every 28 days it basically reproduces itself so in a given it’s 12 to 13 new skins that you have which is quite remarkable when you think about that. The thing is skin has some very important functions which we can sort of categorize in 3 ways. The first is protective; there is a barrier to protect unwanted things from coming into the system, viruses, bacteria and kinds of things that causes damage within.
The skin consists of 2 main layers ,the epidermis and the dermis. The dermis and the epidermis are derived from a different embryologic tissue type. The subcutaneous tissue resides immediately beneath the two primary layers of skin. The outer layer of skin (the epidermis) consists of stratified squamous keratinizing epithelium and is derived from ectoderm (Fig. 1). The epidermis contains no blood vessel sand is nourished entirely from tissue fluid emanating from the inner (deeper) vascularized skin tissue known as the dermis. The dermis is derived from mesoderm and contains the nutrient- providing blood vessels. Each of the two primary layers of skin has structurally distinct sublayers
