Traffic soot may be major cause of skin aging
Skin & Allergy News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
New evidence indicates that an important cause of extrinsic skin aging is chronic exposure to soot and other airborne particulates generated by motor vehicle exhaust. A strong epidemiologic association has been established between residing near a busy highway and incresed skin wrinkling and pigmented spots, and a plausible biologic mechanism for causality has been established. Thus, exposure to traffic-related airborne particulate matter joins solar ultraviolet radiation and tobacco smoke as the third potentially modifiable major factor identified in extrinsic skin aging, Dr. Jean Krutmann said at the World Congress of Dermatology.

Dermatology Times via Modern Medicine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Many dermatologists' comfort level with dermoscopy is growing, but dermatologists and dermatopathologists don't always agree on the diagnosis of a particular lesion. "Although dermoscopy is a wonderful tool for sorting out benign from malignant melanocytic lesions, some lesions remain difficult to diagnose even with dermoscopy," says James M. Grichnik, M.D., Ph.D. Such moles can also be difficult even for pathologists to diagnose accurately, he says. He is director, Melanoma Program, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and professor, department of dermatology, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. More

California, 20 other states consider banning teens from tanning beds
San Jose Mercury News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If a proposed law passes, California teens younger than 18 will need a fake ID to "fake and bake" themselves to a golden brown. Citing skin cancer risks, legislators have joined lawmakers in at least 21 other states who have debated bills this year to ban or restrict tanning bed use by minors. Teens under the age of 14 are already banned from tanning beds in California, and older teens need parental permission. But lawmakers in the Golden State are considering banning anyone under age 18 from using tanning beds, even if a parent says it's OK. More

Shade: A weapon against skin cancer, childhood obesity
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Kids flocked to two redesigned New York City playgrounds last year to check out the shiny, stainless-steel climbing domes. But they reacted with more than squeals of delight. On sunny days, the climbing domes quickly got hotter than a frying pan. Kids scalded their hands, prompting park officials to install a tent over the dome in Union Square and to remove the domes in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The uproar highlights an issue that makes many parents as hot as a metal slide: a lack of shade at most of the places that children spend their summers. At stake is far more than playtime comfort. Though children have always dealt with the summer sun, research now shows a growing risk of the most serious form of skin cancer. And sun exposure is greatest during childhood. Shade does more than protect children's skin. A growing number of advocates say it also may help kids stay more active. More
