    This information was great! I wonder why black people are less likely to develop skin cancer. What te pigment absent i their epidermis and present in case of fair skin peoples. Or is there any other reason?

    Great information as far as what to look for, but I'm not super impressed with the uber-conversation about how to avoid the sun. How come melanoma shows up most commonly in places that are protected from sun exposure, like the scalp? I think it is important to avoid getting sun burns, yes, but sun exposure is the only natural way for the body to obtain vitamin D. As most of us know by now, vitamin D deficiencies are being implicated in many pathological conditions including many cancers, according to hundreds of studies done in the last couple of decades. At the very least, she should have mentioned minimal sun exposure and/or Vitamin D3 supplementation.
