The 'Big C'.

We live our lives walking upon egg-shells. This time of year we are cautioned by the effects of the Sun. Take care, be aware...........


A Christmas gift idea for those you love...pay for a Mole Mapping session (or family members all chip in). This service SAVES LIVES!!!!! The initial consultation is about $300 and then it's cheaper on subsequent visits but for those with lots of moles and freckles this is a necessity...especially with our harsh NZ sun and lack of ozone layer. Consider this as a gift idea this Christmas...


A recent article has stated that due to the lack of vitamin D (sunshine) can bring on MS. Then we have too much sunshine which can/is results in melanoma or skin cancer......... Damned if we do and damned if we don't.....


Yes, the herbalist that I go to said I might be getting so sick over winter because I haven't built up my stores of vitamin D over summer - always covered in spf30. He recommended 15 minutes of bare skin (arms, legs) outside without sunblock before 10am or after 4pm (peak UV hours) most days in summer to keep those levels up.


Keep applying lip protectant when out doors - it gets licked off so quickly. I know to my cost as I've lost part of my lower lip to skin cancer. The surgeon managed to make it look OK but it will never feel as good - can't now open my mouth wide enough for a good yawn!!!!

Wow, i never even considered this..... Im sorry for your... loss.... but thanks for sharing...

...gosh though I have olive skin I know I still need to be cautious when venturing out......and like Anna sorry about what happened....
