The Importance of Blocking UV Rays

When we think of summer, we think of fun in the sun but most don’t consider the amount of damage the sun can cause. Ultraviolet rays, also known as UV rays cause damage to your skin, your eyes, and your immune system. Blocking these rays in your home or business can possibly save your life.

Some effects of UV exposure are mild while others can be life threatening. Sunburn is a mild case, which causes redness of the skin, which is due to increased blood flow in the skin. High doses of UV exposure may cause pain, blistering, and skin peeling. More serious effects to the skin include skin cancer. Research shows that most people develop skin cancer from harmful UV rays. It is very important to protect your skin, and even more important to protect the skin of children. Skin cancer is extremely rare in children; however the amount of exposure they receive during childhood causes an increased risk, as they become adults.

Recent studies show that UV rays cause serious eye conditions such as cataracts, if proper eye protection is not worn. Protection is especially useful in the summer, as UV levels are up to three times higher. It is estimated that 3.2 million people go blind each year due to UV exposure.

These rays can also weaken your immune system, which is your body’s defense against disease. The rays stop your body’s ability to fight off bacteria and greatly increases your risk of infection.
