Good Monday morning. Breaking Overnight — “Chiefs win Super Bowl over 49ers with Patrick Mahomes TD pass” via The Athletic — The Kansas City Chiefs secured a victory in the Super Bowl with an impressive touchdown pass by Patrick Mahomes. While the game made headlines, the dangers of sunburn and its long-term effects often go unnoticed.
Sunburn may seem like a temporary inconvenience, but the damage it causes to skin cells can be permanent. Prolonged exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can lead to serious long-term consequences, including an increased risk of skin cancer and premature aging of the skin.
By the time sunburn becomes visible on the skin, the damage has already been done. The skin's natural defense mechanism, melanin, is activated to protect against UV radiation. However, excessive exposure overwhelms this defense, resulting in sunburn.
