Two studies published yesterday showed that vitamin D produced by the action of the sun on the skin may help improve survival for patients with skin and bowel cancer.

i thought that was where the sun didn't shine

It also looks better than the fake tans you get at tanning salons. Those make you look like a cheap slut with leathery skin.

Because, as we all know, you can't survive something if you've never had it.

A) Vitamin D is very beneficial.
B) Tanning is very beneficial against burning.
C) Skin Cancer has a survival rate above 99.5%. (Basal Cell Carcinoma is almost impossible to die from, it's malignant melanoma that's the killer and even then it's 80% survival rate)

Lets get this out of the way: misuse of the irony tag.

m1ke: Lets get this out of the way: misuse of the irony tag.

So, sunbathing actually being helpful in preventing skin cancer when sunbathing is a risk factor for skin cancer is not, "an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected"?

Why is it that the irony police always abuse their powers much like the IRL police?

Here we go. DEFINITELY IRONIC. (assuming the headline matches the article, contents; dr)

FTFM

/Still ironic

m1ke had to turn in his badge and gun, and is suspended without pay until the investigation is complete...

Preventing skin cancer or surviving skin cancer? Both the headline and TFA say the latter, while you say the former.

Church: Okay. We're all agreed that while the current situation is not totally ironic, the fact that we have to work together is odd in an unexpected way that defies our normal circumstances. Is everybody happy with that?

It is ironic when compared with our previously held ideas about skin cancer. However, assuming this new information is correct it will no longer be ironic because we now expect this to be the case.

I think that covers it.

If you read the rest of the thread, you would see that I caught myself...

It took me a while to find a picture of Church. That's why my response was after your self-correction.

And as jake3988 pointed out farther up the thread, the kind of skin cancer you get from over exposure to the sun is not the kind you die from. The kind you die from is the kind you get even if you were a vampire and never saw the sun.

Benjimin_Dover: And as jake3988 pointed out farther up the thread, the kind of skin cancer you get from over exposure to the sun is not the kind you die from.

Excuse me?

My wife just had two surgeries to remove a melanoma and a large portion of its surrounding skin tissue, not to mention a painful lymph node biopsy -- all because of her previous overexposure to the sun. She will have to go for follow-up screenings every two months for the next three years, and then every six months the next two years after that. The surgeon said that my wife was extremely fortunate that this was caught when it was, because the malignant cancer cells had not yet spread to other organs.

But, you go on and explain how all this works... Apparently, you know better than the rest of us.

You are excused.

/whole family on mother's side is skin cancerific.
//grandfather died from it after spreading to bones.
///everybody gets all those little things cut off and tested frequently now.
