Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 35 -- Sun Exposure.

BOYS WILL BE BOYS-

...older teen boys (aged 15 to 17) are the least careful when it comes to protecting their skin from sun exposure -- with only 32 percent of those surveyed reporting that they are very or somewhat careful... compared to 58 percent of girls of the same age....

Considerably fewer boys reported wearing protective clothing and seeking shade when outdoors for long periods of time compared to girls, and only 33 percent of boys said that they apply sunscreen when they are going to be out in the sun vs. 53 percent of girls....

When asked about how careful they are to protect their skin from the sun, 52 percent of the younger teens reported that they are very or somewhat careful vs. only 43 percent of older teens....

...5 percent of boys reporting that they used a tanning bed last year vs. 19 percent of girls. The majority of girls who used a tanning bed (39 percent) noted that the reason they did was to get a tan for a special occasion, such as a wedding or prom.

When I was really young it didn't dawn on me that I was frying myself. It really didn't dawn on me that I would ever be old! Then a couple of days ago I had another birthday...It is rather strange to think I am not considered young anymore...The sun I use to love has become the sun I try to avoid! John Kerry might have been right about his fake tan! Hmmmm I have finally agreed with him about something...Could I be wrong?
