Does your MD recommend sunscreen? 450px-Sun_burn

If you read my posting titled Daily Sunscreen CAN Reduce Photo Aging then you already know how important sunscreen is to anti aging but whats even more important is this!

“The high incidence and morbidity of skin cancer can be greatly reduced with the implementation of sun-protective behaviors, which patients should be counseled about at outpatient visits.”

According to this new study by JAMA Dermatology, MD’s were only mentioning sunscreen at 1.6% of their patients visits!

Seems quite low, no? So tell me has your MD ever recommended sunscreen to you?
