Damage to the skin does not require direct exposure. Skin cancer can be serious and deadly at any age, but is currently one of the most rapidly growing forms of cancer in the U.S., with one out of five Americans affected last year alone. Sun radiation damage starts at an early age and accumulates over the years. Studies show that even one blistering sunburn before the age of 20 can more than double a person's skin cancer risk later on. So controlling exposure to the sun is an important consideration for everyone, especially in the home, where people erroneously feel totally protected. Glass alone cannot eliminate Ultraviolet light, which is the main cause of skin cancer today. However, professionally installed residential window tinting can effectively eliminate up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays in your home. Nature provides the skin with melanin, in an attempt to protect, but it is not fully developed in infants and even when fully developed, it's not nearly enough protection for adults. Protection from UVA and UVB rays should begin at infancy since soft, tender baby skin is the most sensitive. Children should be taught to be sun-defensive no matter where they are or how exposure may occur, including the risk of exposure from untreated windows.
