Understanding the Dangers of the sun...

Too much unprotected exposure to the sun can lead to things such as heat exhaustion and skin cancer.

Dr. Khami Chokani, Medical Health Officer for the Cypress Health Region, says it is important to ensure loved ones are prepared for the sun

"The need for people to ensure not only are we protected but our children are protected and our parents are protected."

Today's UV index is at 8 or high, which means you will burn in 12 mins without proper sunscreen.

Another 76,000 new cases of skin cancer are expected this year, compared to 58,500 in 1994.
