You may be familiar with this story, or at least the picture of this gentleman. It has been all over the news and various television shows. The New England Journal of Medicine has an article about the man pictured above. The left side of his face is severely sun damaged from driving a truck for 25 years and being exposed to the UV rays entering the vehicle. You can find the original article HERE.

This is great information that exposes the truth about the extreme exposure to UV that we are exposed to while driving our vehicles. Many of us would not even consider being outside for any amount of time without some sunscreen to protect our skin. However, we will think nothing of sitting for hours in a car without any form of protection from the sun’s harmful rays. There is an answer in the form of a UV filtering window film for your car’s windows. New technology films can offer significant protection and still appear as clear glass if a tinted look is not something you want. Also, many quality window films have been awarded the Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation for providing a safe and effective protection against UV radiation. Call your local automotive window film provider to find out more information about which films they offer than have been awarded the Seal of Recommendation and what the cost would be to start protecting yourself from harmful UV rays while you are driving.
