New PSA stresses how to stay safe in the sun

By Logan Lafferty

After our long winter, we all deserve to get out and soak up the sun! But doctors say there is such a thing as too much sun. According the Centers for Disease Control, one person dies of Melanoma every hour in the U.S and a growing number of those people are under 30.That's why Mayo Clinic Health System started a new campaign today to warn people about the dangers of too much sun. “Have fun in the sun but be smart anyone can get skin cancer, even young people," were the words used in the Mayo Clinic Health System PSA.
