STUDY | Fewer teens wearing sunscreen

A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows the percentage of high school students who reported using sunscreen fell from nearly 68 percent in 2001 to 56 percent in 2011.

Researchers say the data shows a need to educate young people on ways to reduce the risk of skin cancer.
