After the cold winter months, many people are thrilled to see the sun and take in its rays. Who can blame them? The fiery force provides warmth, gives our wintery pale skins color and helps our bodies produce vitamin D. But some people overexpose themselves to the sun, putting themselves at risk of being one of the more than 3.5 million Americans who develop skin cancer every year. Let this summer be a safe one; learn how you and your family can protect yourselves from skin cancer....

Throwing food on the grill is a summertime tradition. Although there's an ongoing debate about which style of grilling is superior (charcoal vs. gas), it remains a matter of personal preference.

Take a deep breath, because bathing suit season is here! During the time it took you to inhale, hold that breath and expel it, you may have been hit with the reality that summer is really in full affect.

When former Baywatch beauty Pamela Anderson announced to the public more than 10 years ago that she had contracted hepatitis C, fans' jaws dropped--and not necessarily for the reasons some may think. Much of the wonderment stemmed from the fact that people didn't understand the condition and how it was contracted. Many people still scratch their heads when it comes to hepatitis C.
