This article gives information on skin cancer and what sun burn does to teens in later life. This relates to lifestyle choices that we have been studying in class. I agree with the  article because skin cancer is a real issue facing teens.

Samantha Schiodtz's curator insight, November 18, 2013 3:27 PM

Teens do not encounter the future when they are out in the sun trying to get a tan. Lifestyle choices affect your skin conditions in your further years. This is becoming more and more apparent in teenagers in 2013 and beyond. We have been discussing all kinds of cancer and lifestyle diseases in class and specific types. Skin cancer is in this category.

Ailish Manners's curator insight, May 22, 6:20 AM

The things they say in this is so true. Most of the teenagers are doing it only because other people are doing it. I think that most of the girls are only doing it to get a guys attention so that the guys know that a girl is out there for them. The alcohol does so many wrong things to your body! and also can effect you so badly for when you are older!

Christian Troiani's curator insight, November 9, 2013 9:58 PM

This article focuses on the new hope of detecting skin cancer early through a simple blood test. It reiterates the message that we often hear that if caught in its early stages, skin cancer can be treated more effectively and beaten. The article effectively conveys the importance of early detection by explaining that skin cancer can spread to other organs in the body placing the patient in a life threatening situation as the diagnosis and hence treatment is delayed. It also adds that the new blood test, used to screen certain DNA, could lead to new treatments for people who's cancer has spread. This article leaves us hoping that the new blood test will become a reality so that more lives can be saved in the future.
