Sun Health

Here's an interesting news article.

Blah blah blah, wear your sunscreen.

Anyway, it has some interesting statistics...

"35% of the national public score above average."
"Our goal is to move the needle so that we have 45% or even 50% starting to score in the A or B range [ie, above the national average]."

Washington, NYC America's Most 'Sun-Smart' Cities - Yahoo! News

(of course, this is just proof that the average is not the end-all be-all statistic to quote)

One thought on “Sun Health”

  1. That's a pretty fantastic quote. I guess it just means that the American public isn't a gaussian? [insert joke here]. Then again, "above the national mode" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Regarding the article, I'm not really sure that DC counts as sun-smart, doesn't it just mean that an disproportionate number of peeps are stuck inside too much?
