Storyboard Text

  • Not without sunscreen you aren't
  • Mom, I'm going in the water!
  • Listen, you know that sunscreen is important and that you will get a burn if you don't put it on.
  • But mooom, why do I need sunscreen? It isn't even that sunny out!
  • Absolutely! You know the sun gives off light and warmth, but it also produces ultraviolet radiation, which can't be seen or felt.
  • Well, I understand that sunscreen prevents sunburns, but is the sun really that dangerous?
  • Its actually the UV rays that cause sunburns, not light or heat. There's a layer in the earths atmosphere that protects us from the UV rays called the ozone layer, but that layer is being depleted, causing more radiation to reach earths surface.
  • Yeah but it isn't super sunny and there are some clouds to cover the sun, so aren't we safe?
  • The UV levels do vary depending on the weather, time of day, time of year, and other things, but that doesn't mean it isn't dangerous
  • Oh, that makes sense.
  • There can be serious affects from, the sun, not just sunburns. Not protecting yourself from the sun can even lead to cancer. And it isn't all that rare to get, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer
  • Cancer?!?
