Sun: "Who Will I Kill Today?"

Sun kills 60,000 a year, says WHO
"As many as 60,000 people a year die from too much sun, warns the World Health Organization.

The bulk of the deaths are from skin cancers caused by excess exposure to the sun's harmful rays, ultraviolet radiation, says WHO.

UVR also causes sunburn, triggers cold sores and ages the skin, according to its report, the first to outline the global health burden of sun exposure.

Simple measures, such as covering up when in the sun, could cut the deaths."

What the World Health Organization does not tell you is that most of these victims are Martians and Vampires. Think about that!

I am in favor of this plan, clearly, as I am practically allergic to the sun.
