A study conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Diego and the University, of Edinburgh has found that the sun has an excellent chance of bringing you back to health and longevity.
The research, published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, looked at the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays on human skin, skin diseases and cancers, and the overall health of the population.
Researchers examined data from over 8,500 people, who were diagnosed with melanoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The researchers say that the research is the largest and most comprehensive study of its kind ever conducted.
“This is the first time a large-scale study of the skin’s UVB (ultraviolet B) spectrum has been conducted, and it provides an exciting glimpse into the human body’s ability to protect against UVB-induced skin cancer,” said Dr. John Gee, an assistant professor of dermatology at UC San Diego.
“Our study provides important new insights into the mechanisms underlying sun protection and the role of the human skin in protecting against cancer and other diseases.”
The researchers say the results show that UVB radiation from the sun is an important driver of UVB damage to skin cells and tissues.
UVB rays, which have a wavelength of up to 400 nanometers, penetrate deep into the skin, hitting the skin and damaging it.
The more UVB that hits the skin at one time, the more damaging it is.
The researchers found that UV rays from the sunlight also have an effect on the human genome, affecting genes that are crucial for the development of skin cells.
In addition, UVB has been shown to damage DNA, affecting the structure and function of cells.”UVB exposure leads to mutations in genes that have been linked to skin cancer risk,” said co-author Dr. Michael Toth, a UC San Francisco professor of medicine and director of the UC San Marcos Institute for Health and Medical Research.
“It has also been linked with DNA damage, which increases the risk of skin cancer.”
“This study confirms the sun plays a role in skin cancer prevention, which is why the sun protects against UV rays by increasing the levels of vitamin D in the skin.
Vitamin D helps the body to manufacture vitamin A, which in turn helps protect the skin from UV rays.”
The study also revealed that UV light from the Sun is a powerful antioxidant, which protects cells against the damaging effects of free radicals, which are created by the body.
Free radicals are dangerous, and can cause DNA damage and cell damage.
The sun also has a protective effect on skin that has been found to play a key role in many cancers.
A large body of evidence suggests that UV radiation from sunlight is linked to a reduced risk of certain cancers.
In other words, the sun provides a protective boost to healthy skin cells that can help reduce cancer risk.
“The results suggest that UV exposure may be protective in the prevention of skin cancers, but not in the treatment of these cancers,” Dr. Toth said.
“We know that skin cancer can be prevented by sun protection measures, and that a significant number of patients with melanomas have good skin.
But it’s still unknown whether a UV dose from the sky, or the sun itself, will actually help to prevent skin cancer in patients with this disease.”
This study was funded by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Wellcome Trust and the European Union.
