At first I was a bit put off by Dr. Forney singling out older white men aka me. I’m white and while I don’t consider myself older, at 58 I think my 18 year old son considers me older.
I have six of the risk factors listed below for melanoma. I got sunburned as a kid repeatedly and I have already had a mole surgically removed from my face though the diagnosis was “indeterminate.” I have pre-skin cancer freckles on my bald head (actinic keratosis) and to be honest, Dr. Forney’s message resonated with me.
There are a host of evidence-based, non-toxic therapies that research has shown can reduce the risk of melanoma. I’m not only talking about wearing a hat. I’m talking about supplementation such as grape seed extract. According to research some of the evidence-based, non-toxic therapies also repair some or all of the sun damage.
I am a both a cancer survivor and cancer coach. Scroll down the page, post a question or a comment. I will reply to you ASAP.
