Spring has finally arrived in the Seattle, Washington area and as a way to honor May being Skin Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to share this important sun safety information with you. Did you know drivers in the U.S. have a higher rate of skin cancer on their left side due to exposure while driving? Practice good sun safety by having a UV blocking window film installed on your vehicle. In fact, The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tint as part of a comprehensive skin care program stating,
“The sun’s ultraviolet radiation is associated with most cases of skin cancer, which will affect one in five Americans over a lifetime. UV radiation reaches us in the form of shortwave UVB and long-wave UVA rays, but glass blocks only UVB effectively. Although car windshields are partially treated to filter out UVA, the side windows let in about 63 percent of the sun’s UVA radiation; rear windows are also unprotected, leaving back seat passengers exposed. There is, however, a solution. Transparent window film screens out almost 100 percent of UVB and UVA without reducing visibility, and is available in all 50 states. If you have window film installed, remember that it protects you only when the windows are closed.”
