Farmers and ranchers are at greater risk of developing skin cancer than the average American because they are exposed to 2-3 times as much UV radiation as indoor workers. Protect your skin by using broad spectrum sunscreen, wearing sunglasses, long sleeve shirt and pants, and a wide brim hat. Also be aware that some medications can increase your sensitivity to the sun.

For those fighting the battle against cancer, look into Vitamin C IV Therapy. Large doses of this vitamin, especially delivered intravenously has amazing results in killing cancer cells & reducing tumour size. Not cheap but helps those recovering from chemo & is very energy boosting. Alternatively- look into Lypo Spheric Vitamin C (taken orally). We all can benefit from more vitamin C in our day to day lives. This type of vitamin C has a rapid delivery system that goes more quickly into the bloodstream. Regular vitamin C doses cannot be absorbed as fast in the bloodstream because it is destroyed by digestive enzymes. Just wanted to share this knowledge as we continue our battle, do what’s best for you & your health! Be well everyone!
