    DermTV – Skin Cancer Statistics [DermTV.com Epi #203]

    [music] Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] and welcome to DermTV. As we approach the end of May, National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, there’s one more very important point I’d like to make about skin cancer. Melanoma is the only preventable cancer for which the mortality rate continues to increase. In the 30-year period, from 1975 to 2005 the death rate for melanoma has increased a dramatic forty-percent. It’s gone from 225 deaths per million Americans to 310 deaths per million Americans.

    Nature’s Mood Rings: How Chameleons Really Change Color | Deep Look

    I don’t know about you, but I thought to be chameleon-like was to be someone who could fit in anywhere. Adapt. Blend in. Turns out that is all wrong. Chameleons don’t change color to match their environment. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Their baseline is camouflage. When chameleons are relaxed, they’re mostly green. They naturally blend into their home in the forest canopy. They even mimic leaves by dancing around a little. But when they feel threatened, or annoyed, or just want to show a little swagger – that is when their color changes. They transform into living mood rings. Chameleons change color to make a statement. The faster…

    Eczema care: 3 easy steps

Apply eczema creams immediately after the bath. Steroids — these are really important if your child’s skin has active eczema…
