How effective is sun screen?

Maybe wearing summer weight long pants and long sleeve shirts is more effective? Seems we see a lot of male and female residents from the hotter oil rich regions keeping their bodies covered/protected in this fashion.

It is better to cover up with clothing and a hat, but I try to get the exposed areas with some SPF100 if I know I will be outside a long time.

I heard that anything over SPF 30 was just overkill. Izzat true? I could ask the Sound Off folks, I guess, but swag might pitch a hissy.

UV rays are part of how cataracts are formed so good quality sunglasses should be worn as well as sunscreen. Our ancestors were wise to use a parasol when they went outdoors. Sunglasses and sunscreen should be considered part of basic health care.
