What kind of damage are we doing to our bodies with sun tanning?

    So when I was young there was no sun screen.  Many of us played as children and then worked as adults in the sun.  We sometimes got burnt and sometimes blistered.

    At the age my husband and I are now signs of skin cancer are showing up.  I have no signs of pre cancer so far.  He has lots of pre cancer spots.  So it's partly hereditary and partly the sun damage because I was in the sun as much or more than he was.  Freckling and wrinkles also occur with sun exposure.  We both have those.

    Ultraviolet light can cause changes (cancerous) in the upper layers of skin. Sun tan lotions are used to block these rays.
