With record-breaking temperatures all around ths country this hot summer, people are heading for the beaches, their swimming pools & running through backyard water hoses – anything to cool off.

So Mrs. Green has to ask: how are you doing on wearing your sunscreen & choosing it wisely?  It really matters that you wear it & it REALLY matters that you know what’s in it.  Have kids? Grandkids? Even more important because it’s our job to protect them. Please, please, please take the time to do a little research & find out what’s in your sunscreen. The easiest place to check? Environmental Working Group’s 2012 Sunscreen Guide. http://breakingnews.ewg.org/2012sunscreen/?inlist=Y&utm_source=2012fourthofjulytips&utm_medium=email&utm_content=second-link&utm_campaign=food If you are lucky enough to be sitting on the beach somewhere & checking your iPhone or Droid, click through to see what is in YOUR sunscreen without even getting out of your chair.  What you find might be utterly delightful or you might read it and weep. Just care enough about yourself and your loved ones to do your healthy homework!
