Driving May Cause Cancer

Spending a lot of time behind the wheel could put you at an increased risk for skin cancer.

That is according to preliminary research from Saint Louis University’s School of Medicine.

A study finds a link between more time spent driving and a higher incidence of skin cancers on the left side of the body that is exposed to the sun.

The findings were especially true among men who had a significant number of left-side skin cancers.

More than a million skin cancer cases are diagnosed in this country each year.
