A recent study found that melanoma rates among young white women have more than doubled in the past three decades. And the rates are especially high in wealthy, educated women.
As to the reason why this trend is happening, senior author Christina A. Clarke has an idea:
“We think this has to do with cultural preferences in higher-income groups for tanning, having the time to tan and the means to pay for tanning beds, and sun exposure on vacations in the middle of winter.”
Here’s our advice: NEVER go to tanning beds. AND wear sunscreen every day — especially on your face.
You will pay the price later in life if you don’t protect yourself while you’re young.
Stephen J. Cannell, the producer of iconic television shows such as The A-Team, 21 Jump Street and The Rockford Files has died at the age of 69.
His family released the following statement, saying:
"Stephen J. Cannell passed away at his home in Pasadena on Thursday evening due to complications associated with melanoma. He was surrounded by his family and loved ones.
Aside from being a legendary television producer and prolific writer, Stephen was also a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, and a loyal friend. Mr. Cannell is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 46 years, Marcia, their three children, Tawnia, Chelsea and Cody and three grandchildren. Stephen was the pillar of strength within his family and he touched everyone he met. He will be most deeply missed.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the American Cancer Society or The International Dyslexia Association. Details regarding his memorial service will be released."
Poor guy. He had such an impact on television history. At least now he is at peace.
We send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends for their loss.

However the Her star was NOT in the revealing mood as she wore some semi-baggy clothes to cover up that baby bump of love! Don't get us wrong though, she
