Cool New EPA App…
EPA has a cool new app for your smartphone…the UV forecast app. The Ultraviolet (UV) Index provides a daily forecast of the UV radiation levels from the sun on a 1 – 11+ scale. Ozone layer depletion decreases our atmosphere’s natural protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Understanding these risks and taking a few sensible precautions will help you enjoy the sun while lowering your chances of sun-related health problems.
