Skin Cancer, Sunlight, UV-radiation, Oxidative Stress
The biggest cause of SKIN CANCER is SUN exposure. Who Gets Skin Cancer, and Why?
Sun exposure is the biggest cause of skin cancer. But it doesn’t explain skin cancers that develop on skin not ordinarily exposed to sunlight. Exposure to environmental hazards, radiation treatment, and even heredity may play a role. Although anyone can get skin cancer, the risk is greatest for people who have:
*Fair skin or light-colored eyes
*An abundance of large and irregularly-shaped moles
*A family history of skin cancer
*A history of excessive sun exposure or blistering sunburns
*Lived at high altitudes or with year-round sunshine
*Received radiation treatments
The incidence of skin cancer is on the rise. An estimated 40% to 50% of fair-skinned people who live to be 65 will develop at least one skin cancer. Learn to spot the early warning signs. Skin cancer can be cured if it’s found and treated early.
The Role of Manganese Superoxide Dismutase in SKIN CANCER.
Recent studies have shown that antioxidant enzyme expression and activity are drastically reduced in most human skin diseases, leading to propagation of OXIDATIVE STRESS and continuous DISEASE progression. More info here~

PROTANDIM, a combination of 5 well-studied medicinal plants, was given via dietary administration and significantly decreased tumor incidence and multiplicity by 33% and 57%, respectively. These studies suggest that alterations in antioxidant response may be a novel approach to chemoprevention. This paper focuses on how regulation of antioxidant expression and activity can be modulated in skin disease and the potential clinical implications of antioxidant-based therapies.

Know Your ABCDEs ~ If you have moles, you should examine your body once a month.
Most moles on a person’s body look similar to one another. A mole or freckle that looks different from the others or that has any characteristics of the ABCDEs of melanoma should be checked by a dermatologist. It could be cancerous. The ABCDEs are important characteristics to consider when examining your moles or other skin growths.
According to the World Health Organization, ultraviolet radiation-emitting tanning devices like tanning beds are among the most dangerous sources of cancer-causing radiation in the world. Those who use tanning beds before the age of 30 are said to increase their lifetime risk of melanoma, which is deadly, by 75 per cent.

Oxidative Stress is an important contributor to cancer development. Consistent with that, antioxidant enzymes have been demonstrated to suppress tumorigenesis when being elevated both in vitro and in vivo, making induction of these enzymes a more potent approach for cancer prevention. Protandim, a well-defined combination of widely studied medicinal plants, has been shown to induce superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase activities and reduce superoxide generation and lipid peroxidation in healthy human subjects.
