With summer comes plans for lazy days, vacations at home or abroad, and spending time in the great outdoors. But summer livin’ is also fraught with unique health hazards ranging from mosquito-borne illnesses to sun exposure to contaminated food to all manner of physical injuries due to increased outdoor activities. A single sunburn can increase the risks of developing skin cancer, and five or more sunburns in your life can double the risk of melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer.
