click here! Dr. Shawn Allen in Boulder tells us what to look for when getting new sunscreen for the summer. Basically you have to take care of both the UVA and UVB rays. and do an SPF over 30. Make sure about that UVA rating....you don't want skin cancer!
Consumer Reports -The consumer-watchdog group rated as best buys two products, No-Ad with Aloe & Vitamin E SPF 45, a lotion costing 59 cents an ounce and Walgreens Continuous Spray Sport SPF 50, at $1.30 an ounce....
It rated as the very worst Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Creme Lotion SPF 50 because it got the "worst possible score on UVA.’’
CR said the other two worst were Banana Boat Kids Tear-Free Sting-Free SPF 50 and Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Sunblock Sport SPF 45. Both did well on UVB but tanked on UVA protection.
It recommended five sunscreens: All Terrain AquaSport SPF 30; Banana Boat Clear UltraMist Sport Performance Active Dry Protect SPF 30; Coppertone Sport High Performance Ultra Sweatproof SPF 30; Eco All Natural Sunscreen Body SPF 30; and Coppertone Oil Free Foaming SPF 75+.

A recent study is calling for nationwide mandatory pulse oximetry screening for newborns. Congenital heart disease is the most common and deadliest birth defect. Routine pulse oximetry screening will provide early detection and will help to determine if corrective surgery is necessary. However, only FOUR states (New Jersey, Indiana, Virginia, Maryland) currently have required pulse ox screening in newborns.
In Colorado, the altitude affects the current pulse ox screening.
Click Here for my story on pulse Ox Screening for Newborns.
Local author and Congenital Heart Disease advocate Amanda Adams was instrumental in passing legislation in February calling for the Colorado Department of Health to develop a statewide screening system with the state’s high altitude in mind. While it has not been an easy road, Amanda’s new book HEART WARRIORS details how early detection saved her son’s life.
