Sun Safety & Skin Protection


In The Moment ... July 23, 2018 Show 384 Hour 1

Hawaii's Governor has signed the first ban on sunscreens that contain chemicals believed to be harmful to coral reefs. The move made national headlines, but many scientists and dermatologists say enacting a ban causes confusion among consumers. It might even dissuade people from lathering on the sunblock.

We're broadcasting this week from the SDPB Black Hills Studio. Western South Dakota is thrumming with visitors. They take to the trails, to the mountains, and to the lakes and streams of the Hills.

Dr. Roger Knutson, dermatologist with Rapid City Regional Health, joined In The Moment to remind folks of sun safety and skin protection.
