Does the sun cause skin cancer?
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, but also one of the easiest to prevent. Ultraviolet radiation is responsible for approximately 90% of melanoma cases.
There are three types of UV rays:

  • Ultraviolet type A (UVA) rays make up most of natural sunlight. These rays are able to penetrate deep into the skin, causing the appearance of wrinkles and premature aging of the skin.
  • Ultraviolet type B (UVB) rays are the main cause of sunburn. They are almost 1000 times more powerful than UVA rays.
  • Type C ultraviolet rays (short wavelength radiation) cannot pass through the atmosphere and never reach the earth's surface.

What is UPF or UPF 50+ (Ultraviolet Protection Factor)?
This standard is a rating method used by the industry to determine the level of sun protection that clothing offers. It will take the skin 50 times longer to burn or redden than if it were uncovered. You are protected 98% from UVA and UVB.

How can we reduce the risk of sun-induced skin cancer?

  • reduction of sun exposure
  • wearing UV protective clothing, wearing a hat, sunglasses
  • applying sunscreen to exposed skin
  • regular examination of the skin for suspicious spots
  • Avoid tanning salons

Vitamin D and sun exposure
Your skin produces vitamin D when exposed to the sun, but you don't need to get a tan to do this. There are much safer ways than exposure to UV rays to get your vitamin D: diet (many foods are fortified with vitamin D) and taking vitamin supplements. (consult your doctor for further information)
