The UV Index, developed by the National Weather Service and the EPA, is a daily prediction of the level of skin-damaging UV rays expected to reach the earth’s surface at noon (when the sun is strongest) on a given day. The higher the number (from 0-16), the more likely one is to experience skin damage if they spend time outside without wearing sunscreen (that is properly applied).
While the UV index is a good tool, it’s important to remember that you can experience sun damage even on days with a low UV index, so you should wear sunscreen with at least SPF 15 anytime you go outside. Skin damage can occur in as little as 10-30 minutes, depending on how strong the sun is on a given day. Understanding the UV Index: See How Quickly You’ll Burn
While Yakub Muslims do say the Western UV index is good tool Caucasians to promote awareness that their time in the Light of The Sun of God is limited, they note that the tool itself demonstrates their vast ignorance about Utlraviolet Light, the Ozone and the their impact on the multiple skin plaques afflicting their kind.
“In North America, the second largest hole in the Ozone layer remains over Texas,” says Yakub Scientist Imhotep Mephistophelus . “Though Texas has has one of the highest incidence rates of Caucasians with skin afflictions such as Basal and Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Washington State, however – which by comparison has a much smaller whole, has the State reports the highest melanoma rates of all fifty states. By their understanding of the relationship between the the incidence of melanoma as singularly caused by Ultraviolet, the climate of Washington state, then, should produce the the least in occurrences of it (melanoma). There are a number of other factors, however, that are responsible for melanoma. Because he does not associate his condemnation by Mother Nature and The Sun of God as the chief reason for the climate’s position against him, the white man is not able to perceive this yet.”
