I learned my lesson a few years ago.... Started fishing at around 10 AM with no shirt on... it was the first actuall hot day of summer. I was outside till just before dark !!! I couldnt wear a shirt for 2 days... couldn't work... If I got goosebumps, It was agony ! hahaha My entire back was covered in blisters. It was NOT fun !!!!

ouch....I feel sorry for her....and yes, I do believe she will learn her lesson. As a parent though, you have the thankless job of reminding her of what she needs to do and enforcing it.

That's a nasty burn for sure...Can't help but feel for her. A couple years ago my friend went to Morocco to fish for carp. Shirt-less, without sunscreen and without a hat...He was side-lined from doing anything for about a month.LOL

 

For all the days I'm out on the water fishing, I take sun-protection very seriously.

Also need to guard against receiving too little sun. It's hard to believe, but I had a vitamin D defiency. It can be serious. A daily dose of D-3 has me put me where I belong.

Yes…Vitamin D is required to process calcium in your body and it may significantly reduce your risk of cancer. Not even vitamin D enriched foods and drinks have the same potency as just going outside. My doctor recommended 15mins of sun exposure before and/or after the peak times (like 11am-4pm when the sun is at it’s brightest).

Worked out doors all through university, usually in boats for the MNR. No shirt, no sunscreen, no hat, no sunglasses. At the ripe age of 53 I had a mole removed that was cancerous. Fortunately I got it early and that was it, just surgery. It's never too late to protect yourself but it's most important before the age of 18 since we get over 50% of our sun exposure before that age.
