Skin Cancer Warning

Posted: Updated:

People are going for that golden sunny glow during this hot weather season.

Health experts worry that people aren't paying attention to the skin cancer warnings.

The results of a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study reveal that half of adults under age 30 had a sunburn at least once in the past year, and about 6 percent of all adults had done indoor tanning.

That included nearly one-third of young white women.

The CDC says, the rate of sunburn reverses progress reported just five years ago.
