Good advice for those exposed to sun – such as the team at Safi

This is especially relevant for those working on an archaeological excavation – even if you work under protective tarps as we do at Safi – since some of the damaging UV rays get through this as well.

    GOOD ARTICLE, AREN. ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. WHILE USING CREAMS AND OILS “KNOWN” FOR THEIR PROTECTIVE INGREDIENTS, I DEVELOPED AN ALMOST LETHAL MELANOMA ON MY RIGHT ARM, WHICH THE CANCER SPECIALIST SAID I WOULD LIKELY DIE FROM. THIS WAS IN 1975. I’M STILL HERE, THANKS BE TO GOD.
