Skin cancer is a serious health concern, and UV radiation from the sun is a major risk factor for its development. By raising awareness about UV safety, we can take proactive steps to reduce our risk of skin cancer and promote overall skin health.
- UV radiation, specifically UVA and UVB rays, can damage the DNA in skin cells, leading to mutations and the development of cancer.
- Prolonged and unprotected exposure to UV radiation increases the risk of skin cancer, including melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma.
Prevention is key, early detection is crucial. Be proactive in safeguarding your skin and promoting skin cancer awareness.
