The sun and immunosupressive drugs

Like we needed more stuff to worry about. I saw a news story on my local news channel about how people taking immune system supressive drugs should be extra careful with exposure to the sun. Supposedly we are at greater risk for skin cancer. Just an FYI to everyone to use lots of sunblock this summer. 8)
