Temperatures on the rise, here's how to reduce sun damage this summer

Temperatures on the rise, here's how to reduce sun damage this summer

How weird are we?! Even though we know the best alternatives, in most cases we are still drawn to the most harmful choice.

In other cases, we exchange one alternative for another, knowing the risk of this decision.

At these moments, the concept of harm reduction plays a key role. Let's take an example from the current situation with high temperatures. During the summer many of us start to stay in the sun to get the beautiful golden color of the skin, although we know that staying for hours under the strong sun of July or August is very harmful. In these cases, public health experts do not advise not to go out in the sun, as something like this is impossible. What they suggest is to use sunscreen with a high protective effect, wear a hat, drink water and fluids to stay hydrated and avoid burning. With these preventive measures, we can enjoy the summer sun a little more calmly, even though we know it hurts us.

Such techniques can also be applied to smoking. The best solution is of course not to start smoking at all, but for those who smoke, the best solution is to quit. Given that most adult smokers want to continue smoking, harm reduction plays a key role in these cases.

For this group of people, switching from cigarettes to technological alternatives based on scientific research can significantly reduce the harm caused by cigarette smoke. This category of heated devices such as IQOS, manages to reduce up to 95% the level of toxic substances that are created by burning cigarettes. Thus avoiding exposure to 6000 chemicals.

Although heated devices are not completely harmless, as they ultimately contain nicotine which is addictive, they offer the potential to be better alternatives for adult smokers. The concept of harm reduction helps us to thus address harmful habits without suppressing human nature.
