SunCast UV Monitor (SunWatch) continuously measures the amount of Ultraviolet you are receiving from the sun even on cloudy days and in water. It is a waterproof, eye catching watch as well as a UV radiation detector and comes with cord, clip and skin analyzer. Wear it on your wrist, around your neck, or fix it to your bag, hat or clothes. Take it with you whenever you go outdoors, whether you are sunbathing, skiing, or swimming. SunCast is available in a range of fashionable colors, to suit every member of your family. Being out in the sun is something that we all enjoy. On our vacation we all like to get a fantastic suntan and all too often we forget about the harmful effects of the sun until it's too late. SunCast is designed to assist you in obtaining a safe suntan without agony and pains of the sunburn or over exposure to UV rays.
The more sun you get, the higher your risk of skin cancer, U.S. researchers said in a report they claim is the first to show an individual's cumulative risk of melanoma. Many studies have linked sun exposure with skin cancer, but the team at the National Cancer Institute said their research was the first to show the intensity of sunlight a person receives over a lifetime is directly related to melanoma risk.

The protective ozone layer has been destroyed by chlorofluorocarbon carbons CFC, chemicals used in air conditioners, refrigerators, and aerosol cans. On this October day, the hole is enormous. In September 19th, 2000 it achieved the largest size ever observed.
Satellite images revealed what looked like a spinning blob covering 10.5 million square miles, occasionally wobbling an arm over southern Chile and Argentina. The ozone hole shown here in purple gaped widest in September. The impact on life is still being studied.
