As we approach mid-summer and the sun shines bright, there is no better time to highlight July as UV Safety awareness month. The sun emits radiation known as UV-A and UV-B rays, which are both harmful to your eyes and skin. Some of those damaging effects could include vision problems or damage to the eyes, skin cancer, premature aging of the skin, and a suppressed immune system.
As summer approaches and we begin to plan our warm weather adventures, don't forget the bug spray! Though not big in size, ticks are one of the most dangerous insects to human beings because of the harmful diseases they can transmit.
