Skimping on Sun Protection

Few parents are making sure that their children and teens are protected against the sun, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The ACS says that fewer than one in three teens wears sunscreen, protective clothing or a protective hat. Among children under 12, about a quarter of parents surveyed said they did not make their children use sun protection.
