Summary
The deep tan was accidentally popularized by Coco Chanel, yet even when Bob Marley died of melanoma decades later, the general public was still not fully aware of the dangers of UV radiation. This program examines not only the medical and scientific aspects of skin cancer, but its cultural, historical, and social facets as well. Using nationally known experts and dramatic personal testimony, it describes symptoms and risk factors - including indiscriminate use of tanning beds - mole assessment, and the pioneering medical trials for melanoma that may revolutionize cancer treatment.
