Exposing Skin Cancer [INFOGRAPH]

Here in Indiana, it has been an out of the ordinary summer. Normally, Hoosiers would be battling heat and humidity in late July, but instead we’ve been greeted with a cool and refreshing second half of the month – the type of weather that invites you to spend more time out in the sun.

However, as we venture out in the sun the rest of this summer, the ICC Data Committee reminds us of proper sun safety in our latest infograph Exposing Skin Cancer. This data visualization unveils all the good and bad that can happen with sun safety and skin cancer in only ten minutes. The infograph also shares key information on skin cancer risk factors, self-screening, and tanning bed restrictions nationwide. Data for the Exposing Skin Cancer infograph was compiled from a number of resources including the Indiana Cancer Registry, the Indiana Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Facts and Figures 2013, and the CDC.
