  1. Michael Kitces:

    It's not too late for young people to dial down their exposure to a level they can tolerate, make a change when things are down 10 percent instead of 40 percent. Things can get worse, and then you'll make really non-rational, emotional decisions.

  2. Sam Liccardo:

    What it points to is the utter failure of a national public health system that should have been identifying the needs, scaling the resources and allocating the resources in a way that would optimally meet the need, it's critical for us to know when we need to take a firefighter or police officer off the line because of exposure, and point-of-contact tests are essential for large cities like ours.

  3. Kathleen Wilson:

    The coolness of water will make a swimmer less aware of a growing sunburn, while reflection of sunlight is more apparent on the beach, it can occur in the water as well. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends reapplying sunscreen at least every two hours to remain protected or immediately after a swim or excessive sweating occurs. For long-distance swimmers, re-applying sunscreen can be impossible once it wears off, so using an alternative like Balmex can be necessary, said Wilson. Traditionally used to treat diaper rash, Wilson said the key ingredient of zinc oxide makes Balmex a useful sunscreen. Its stickiness and adherence to the skin for lengthy periods provides swimmers with adequate sun protection, she said. Exposure to bacteria, parasites Swimmers may be unaware of the dangers of toxic algae, bacterial growth and parasites that thrive in warmer waters. There's also an extremely rare risk of exposure to Naegleria fowleri, a deadly brain-eating amoeba found in bodies of warm freshwater.

  4. Heather Steans:

    One of the best ways to overcome intolerance is through education and exposure to different people and viewpoints, an inclusive curriculum will not only teach an accurate version of history but also promote acceptance of the LGBTQ community.

  5. Maria Neira:

    It is more of a short-term ad hoc rather than a long-term exposure.
