Keira Barr, M.D. writes that getting a beauty sleep and eating foods that have anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, and antioxidant properties are considered great ways to prevent skin cancer. She also recommends to drink coffee and last but not least to get naked. I agree, you need to get naked to examine your skin for skin cancer screening.

And she spells it out correctly:

“Skin cancer is both the most prevalent and the most preventable cancer in our country. Remember to keep up with these four tips, as well as being diligent about sunscreen if you’re going to be spending time outside. Cheers to your resilient health!

In Taiwan cancer is also a serious problem, so I would like to call on everyone to develop a healthy lifestyle. It’s so important for prevention. I include Yoga in my daily life, for example, as practicing yoga helps with awareness.
