Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and is also one of the most preventable. The relationship between the sun and your skin can be a dangerous one, but all it takes is a smart sun exposure strategy combining sunscreen, shade, and protective clothing to greatly reduce your chances of developing this deadly disease.  Remember - "Red is not your color!"
