For Friday, May 27th, 2011
Sun Screen Day educates and brings awareness to the importance of using sunscreens to protect yourself and your children from harmful UV rays from the sun. This day is held on May 27th, just in advance of the summer and vacation season.
Ultraviolet rays from the sun is a serious risk to your health. With the steady depletion of the ozone layer above the earth, more and stronger UV rays get through. Overexposure to the sun can cause a number of health problems. It can cause skin cancer, and sunspots. It can also result in premature aging of your skin.
Doctors and medical professionals advocate the use of sunscreens to guard against health problems. They recommend an Skin Protection factor(SPF) of 15 or more. Sunscreens should be used for all outdoor activities, including swimming. And yes, sun screens should be used on cloudy days. UV rays can penetrate through the clouds.
Now get out and celebrate Sun Screen Day in the sun...with your sun screen protection!
The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 cups fruit juice -- apple, grape, pineapple, orange, fruit punch or cranberry
6, 5 oz size, paper cups
Pour about 1/3 cup fruit juice mixture into each of paper cup; freeze until partially set, about 1 hour.
Insert 1 flat wooden ice cream stick into center of each of the partially frozen pops. Freeze until firm. To serve, peel paper cups from around pops
I'm not a doctor and I don't know the technical terminology, but I do know that sunshine activates our happiness glands.
