Society and the historic rise in skin cancers

I was just wondering if anybody, other than me, has wondered about how the change in focus from modest dressing, hats and working to keep your skin the same color every where ( no tan line) and the new beauty standard of sun kissed reveling clothing in the last 60 years or so has contributed to the rise in skin cancer. It’s not a topic to help anyone currently but rather a “how did we get here” topic. I also work with the elderly and can spot a women who avoided the sun as apposed to one who couldn’t from quite a few feet away.
I love history!
