I am in agreement with this.. I dont think I burn any more now than I did as a kid. I do carry sunscreen with me wherever I go because I can burn in a matter of 5 minutes if I am unprotected.

Actually I don't agree with where I said I agree.
I don't think we will all die without sunscreen but I do think that the awareness of skin cancer has risen over the years. I tend to not burn much and only in the early part of the season. This has not changed since I was a kid.

The hot shower really helps take the burn and itch out. Use sunscreen and lots of it. I use the sunscreen for babies, which I think is spf50. I know were you are coming from, I am also a ginger and turn red in about 3 minutes of direct exposure.

again, sarcasm......

My simple point was we are all aware of the sun, and how it can burn us, and how suncreen can significantly help to protect ourselves from it, it is not that hard to put it on and not get burnt.

I might actually die without sunblock but I don't buy the ozone layer crap...
