Sun Protection from an Umbrella

Sun Protection from an Umbrella
April, 2013


II absolutely love it! According to a recent study in JAMA Dermatology, hand held umbrellas can block 77-99% of UV radiation! With all the side effects I’ve seen in the last 35 years of practicing dermatology in Lincoln, we totally blew it when we quit carrying umbrellas or wearing hats for sun protection. You may see some smart people, who have adopted Lincoln as a new home, who will use umbrellas when out in our summer sun. Since the 50’s, in the USA fashion unfortunately dictated the bronze look as being “healthy” and now we face skin cancer, precancers and accelerated skin aging marked by wrinkles, creping, brown & red spots, and cataracts.

Maybe we can get our football coaches to start a new trend of red cowboy hats with 4” brim. Just remember to not wear them to the Colorado game….remember the 60’s??
