U.S. Melanoma Rate Has Increased

According to a recent article, the U.S. Melanoma rate is now double what it was 30 years ago.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research and water advocate, discussed melanoma on her radio talk show as recently as May 25, 2015. Kleyne is also a former Chairman of her local American Cancer Society organization and founder of the Save a Child’s Life Foundation to raise funds to prevent pediatric melanoma.

Melanoma is easily prevented, according to Sharon Kleyne, by avoiding excessive UVA and UVB exposure, especially during childhood. The disease is easily treated if caught early but can quickly become life-threatening if allowed to progress. Mrs. Kleyne notes that dehydration (water loss) of the skin, which frequently occurs during intense sun exposure, lowers the skin’s resistance to UVA and UVB damage.
