Market for UV protective clothing grows as skin cancer rates soar
Australia has indeed been a world leader leader in trying to avoid sun exposure. they have promoted sunscreens to a greater extent than any other country and have made it almost criminal to be out on the beach without SPF. Has anyone noticed the result? Over the past 70 years, skin cancer has increased exponentially. And now they want sun-protective clothing? Recent research from the U.S. has shown that sun deprivation is leading to the deaths of about 33,000 people per year. People who live and work outdoors have about half the risk of melanoma as those who work indoors. Sunlight is vital to human health. Here are some of the reasons:
•A 20-year Swedish study shows that sun avoidance is as bad for the health as cigarette smoking.
•A Spanish study shows that women who seek the sun have one-eleventh the hip fracture risk as those who avoid sun.
•Men who work outdoors have half the risk of melanoma as those who work indoors.
•Women who totally avoid the sun have 10-times the risk of breast cancer as those who embrace the sun.
•Women who sunbathe regularly have half the risk of death during a 20-year period compared to those who stay indoors.
•Sun exposure increases nitric oxide production, which leads to a decrease in heart attack risk.
•Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is essential to human survival, and sun exposure is the only natural way to obtain it. Sunbathing can produce 20,000 units of vitamin D in 20 minutes of whole-body exposure.
•Sun exposure dramatically improves mood through the production of serotonin and endorphin.
•Beyond vitamin D, sun exposure also stimulates the production of endorphin, nitric oxide and BDNF, all of which are vital to human health.
•Regular sun exposure also reduces high blood pressure, heart disease, psoriasis and multiple sclerosis (MS).
•As sunscreen use has increased dramatically, melanoma has INCREASED exponentially.

Type your comment hereIncorrect information appears to come out regularly in press release type news articles.
Yunique was not the first of its kind in the Cloud. For instance, Gartner highlighted Cloud PLM provider WFXondemand as the leader in the field before Yunique was available in the Cloud.
A reference to WhichPLM also has to be taken lightly as they are in the business of charging companies to evaluate or release information about them. If you do not pay their significant fees they will not mention you, no matter how good your solution is.
