Survey: Most know UV protection is important, but still fail to protect themselves

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month in the U.S., and the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has released the results of a survey that found that although most Americans know sun protection is important, they still fail to adequately protect themselves from ultraviolet light (UV) exposure. A second press release from the AAD also said that there is no evidence to support claims that UV exposure may be effective in treating Covid-19, warning the public that the risks of UV radiation outweigh any perceived positive effects.
