UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — As the specialists of the American organization Skin Cancer Foundation told, in order to maximally protect themselves against skin cancer, it is not enough to avoid sunburn and limit the time spent in the sun.
Constant lack of sleep can also affect the development of the disease . Here the key role is played by the hormone melatonin , which is produced at night in the dark (any light source slows down this process).
In order not to disturb the secretion of melatonin and sleep, it is recommended to stay awake until 11 pm. The habit of regularly sitting up late into the night threatens with a lack of hormone and health problems.
“Normal” melatonin protects the skin from dangerous ultraviolet radiation. It is also a powerful antioxidant and can “absorb” free radicals better than vitamins A or C.
Studies also show that the risk of developing skin cancer increases smoking.
The third point is associated with the use of products with pesticides, toxic food additives and other harmful ingredients. So, experts recommend eating seasonal fruits and vegetables, avoid overcooked, overcooked meat and do not abuse sweets.
The best drink to prevent skin cancer is coffee. According to Food.news, only one cup of coffee a day can reduce the risk of developing melanoma by three percent.
