Nor-Cal EMS Trivia Tidbits

Did You Know?

  • What is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the US?
  • What is the largest organ of the body?
  • What do these two questions have in common?

The answer is skin cancer and the integumentary system.

Nearly 5 million people in the U.S. are treated for skin cancer every year with an average annual cost of over 8 billion dollars. All this and most skin cancers are preventable. So slather on the SPF or stay out of the sun during the hours of 1000 and 1400. If you absolutely have to outdoors, wear a light colored long sleeved shirt and hat.

Now get out there and go play!
