. -. -- by Dr. Louis B. Xapner Rochester Medical Group - Gananda Office - , There's nothing like enjoying those long, warm sunny days of summer, but beware - the sun may be hazardous to your health. Some of you might say \I11 take my chances-- after all I look so much better with my summer tan.\ True, but .not only may too much sun cause skin - cancer, but enough exposure over time $-i.' can also cause premature aging and wrinkling of the skin. Here are a few pointers that.1 give ,, > to my patients.: If at all possible, avoid direct sun exposure between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. This is the \mid-day\ when the sun's . rays tend to be more carcinogenic (skin- cancer causing). '; @ ~-ryk'av@d burning. A few,bad -&bp1jns, $sg&&llY in a child; inc'reases . &e's cha'n:cesP:of developing skin cancer later on in life. ' a Wear-sunscreen - at least SPF 15 (sun protection factor #15). One can still tan and airoid a paihful=sunburn with pro.pes use of sunscreen. If it causes a. rash or irritation, then get a \paba free\ product. .- a 1f you are bald or balding, wear a hat when outdoors. . , a If you are very fair skinned, freckle eaiily, always burn and rkver tan, thendo all the above plwkeep your skin covered or stay- in the shade as much- as possible (especially mid-day). * Believe it or not, the same -rules 'apply on hazy or cloudy days: I've seen more bad sunburns in ..patients who failed to use a sun block because they were out on a cloudy day. If you notice an unusual skin lesion, or get a bad sunburn, or other- wise have questions or concerns re- garding this subject, please contact your physician.

The first bill prohibits insurance companies from increasing rates on an individual's auto policy for accidents. he/she has with a company vehicle. At present, any accidents you have, whether they are in a personal vehicle-or com- pany vehicle, could increase your per- sonal auto insurance rates or subj-ect you to cancellation. I have felt for a long tinie that people who drive for a living are~naturally exposed to a higher likelihood of accidents or tickets than someone just-driving to and,from work each day and should be given that consideration on their insuqance. ' We will see if this one makes it througjh to beconie law. The secdnd bill submitted prohibits .an insuf ance conipany from charging for claims made by another person on,..- allow drivers to 'have their - own indi- vidual policy and be rated-only on their driving record. This bill prbbably came about because everyone in a household is considered by an insurance company even if only one is applying for a policy. Unless the insurance companies can be relieved of .responsibility for the other persons driving your car by having you sign 'a waiver or coverage should they have an accident, this bill probably is not workable. If the insurance com- panib are onZ.+the hook for damages caused by anyone you allow to drive, theyshould have the right to take alook at everyone in the household. I have seen many claims turned in by persons wh$ were. suppo.sedly not drivers of a vrehicle and the insurance companies had to pay. On <he other hadd, I have seen- insurance companies abuse this right- by rejecting good drivers just because of a couple of tickets by someone else in the household who even had their own car insurance and were obviously not pnn~ip a1 opefators: of the other . . cars. , . .. ,, I his column is for general information.
