According to researchers at Edinburgh University, people may be disappointed when trying to get tan by soaking up sunrays this summer. The researchers said that different parts of the body go brown at different speeds, so achieving that idealized image of beauty is not going to happen. The findings explain why certain people find it difficult to get an even, consistent tan.  The main problem is people's bottoms, which take a lot longer to go brown than other parts of their anatomy....

By Barbara Holden We all know a severe automobile accident, malnutrition, infectious disease, trauma and neglect can threaten the life of your child. But did you know that one single sunburn can put your child at risk for melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer?

By David Douglas NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - In a Mediterranean population typically at low risk for developing melanoma, carriers of mutations in the pigmentation gene MC1R are at increased risk of developing the skin cancer and having it progress, a study hints. This seems to be particularly true for mutation carriers who do not have other strong risk factors for melanoma such as freckles or moles. As Dr. Maria Teresa Landi told Reuters Health, "people with red hair, light skin, many...
