I admit I am not a summer person. As you read this, you are likely experiencing the heat of the summer here in China, so you will want to take the necessary steps to keep cool and stay safe from the sun’s dangerous rays. Check out the Healthy You section for information on protecting yourself and your loved ones from the damaging rays of the sun.
