David Saadat, M.D., founder and owner of Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute and Roxbury Surgical center, talks about the damaging effects of Ultraviolet Radiation coming mostly from the sun, though many also expose themselves to even more dangerous UV radiation in tanning beds.
LOS ANGELES, CA: July 13, 2018: Owner and Founder of Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute and Roxbury Surgical Center, David Saadat, M.D., posted a new article on his website entitled, “July Is Ultraviolet Safety And Skin Care Awareness Month,” in which Dr. Saadat asks readers to take precautions when spending time in the sun.
Dr. Saadat points out that, “The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has designated the month of July as Ultraviolet (UV) Safety Month.” He continues adding, “This is the month in the U.S. that people tend to spend the most time outdoors enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. However, what many people seem to forget as soon as the weather warms up is that the sun is a form of UV radiation which causes the skin to burn and can cause skin cancer. I mean, I do understand that intellectually most people are aware of that fact, but reason often gets tossed aside when the great outdoors calls.”
“Just as a reminder,” says Saadat, “ultraviolet light is a form of radiation. “ He elaborates, “You know that when you get any kind of X-ray, the technician protects you with a heavy, typically lead-type of shield. However, when you go out into the sun, you tend to forget that you are exposing yourself to radiation.”
Dr. Saadat provides excerpts from the Oncology Nursing Society website about the nature of radiation and how to safely use sunscreen, writing, “It is my hope that the following information excerpted from the Oncology Nursing Society website will help to inform and remind you to practice sun safety when having summer fun.” He adds, “For the full story you can visit https://voice.ons.org/stories/raise-awareness-in-july-for-ultraviolet-safety-and-skin-cancer-risk”
