CAN TINTING YOUR WINDOWS REALLY HELP PREVENT SKIN CANCER?

Written by Patric Fransko

We live in a very health conscious society. It seems like every time you turn around there’s a new diet, exercise program, juice cleanse, etc. Many people are trying to take a number of small steps that they can handle in order to attain an optimal level of health. However, have you ever considered the fact that you could be damaging your health every time you ride in your vehicle?

When you think of window tinting, you associate it with how it’ll benefit the looks of your car or truck or if you’re more informed, how tint can keep the heat down on hot, sunny days. But did you know that window tint could also help prevent skin cancer? With DUB IR window tint, you can not only look great and be more comfortable, but you will also be protected from the damaging rays of the sun. In fact, DUB IR window tint actually has The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation as being a safe and effective form of sun protection.

This is just part of what The Skin Cancer Foundation says about the importance of using an approved window tint like DUB iR while spending time in their vehicle:

“Road trips make great summer vacations, and they can be enjoyed safely as long as people take precautions. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends the following ways to protect your skin, particularly when spending extended time in the car.”
TREAT YOUR VEHICLE TO WINDOW FILM

“The sun’s ultraviolet radiation is associated with most cases of skin cancer, which will affect one in five Americans over a lifetime. Although car windshields are partially treated to filter out UVA, the side windows let in about 63% of the sun’s UVA radiation; rear windows are also unprotected, leaving back seat passengers exposed. There is, however, a solution. Transparent window film screens block out almost 100% of UVB and UVA without reducing visibility, and is available in all 50 states.” – SkinCancer.org

While most of us would not consider spending considerable time in the sun without protecting ourselves with some form of clothing or sunscreen, we voluntarily spend numerous hours each week within the confines of our vehicles largely unprotected. DUB IR blocks more than 99% of the UV rays from passing through your windows. It’s like applying a highly effective sunscreen to your entire vehicle.
