The ABCs of Sun Protection
Most of us like to be out in the sun. That’s why sunscreen and other safety measures are key to protecting your skin from aging and cancer. The FDA recommends using a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Also look for broad spectrum on the label. That means both harmful ultraviolet A and B rays are blocked. Remember: SPF plus broad spectrum equal healthy fun in the sun. Visit www dot FDA dot Gov slash sunscreen (www.fda.gov/sunscreen) for more information. A message from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Building a better, more humane world begins with the next generation. For more than 100 years, American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization, has been working to teach children the value of being kind to animals. Their humane education campaigns, including the “Be Kind to Animals Week®” have been the most successful in history. Now, American Humane has developed a new campaign called “Kindness100” to give kids (and their parents) four simple ways they can help improve the lives of billions of animals – from disappearing and endangered animals to farm animals to animals used in entertainment and the 6-8 million animals relinquished to U.S. shelters each year. The Kindness100.org website provides little tips that can make a big difference in the lives of the world’s animals. It also provides appealing and professionally prepared pre-K to Grade 5 humane education curricula for parents and teachers. Together we CAN build a more humane world.
