Wear a Hat – Eat Less Fat

Hartford York Hats - Men's Stetson Ivy Cap - The Privateer
For the best protection under the sun from ultraviolet (UV) radiation, you already know how to look good in a hat.

At MSNBC.com, Karen Collins says you can do even more: by limiting alcohol consumption and the amount of fat in your diet, you may also lower your risk of getting skin cancer — a disease which now affects one out of every five Americans.

High-fat diets may increase cancer risk by suppressing the immune system, according to some evidence. Polyunsaturated fats, such as most vegetable oils, may pose the biggest risk.

Excess alcohol has been linked with greater risk of melanoma skin cancers by some researchers. In one study, those who drank the most alcohol had 65 percent greater risk of melanoma than those who drank the least.

Well, I’m off to the yard again – hat firmly on, body glistening in 90 SPF sunscreen lotion, leafy green vegetables in hand, to sit under a tree, sip lemonade and calculate projectile paths on those new-fangled bits of July 4th dynamite pieces I just bought. They should bring down the house!

Thanks for reading,
Steve Singer
