Video: ❶ Danger From Sunlight
The world today is becoming more and more open, so many people living in the northern countries and experiencing a lack of sunlight, seek to spend their holidays where the climate is warmer. Our compatriots have chosen Egypt and Turkey, where the number of sunny days per year reaches 300. Many have heard about the dangers of sunlight and the fact that they increase the risk of skin cancer, but the latest research suggests that this danger is greatly exaggerated. Location: Location:
As it turned out, the sun is not at all the main cause of skin cancer, and being on it is not as dangerous as people, especially those who are zealous for their health, imagine. In the recent issue of the popular science journal Nature Genetics, studies were published that link the dangerous disease to the number of moles on the body. The more there are, the higher the risk of melanoma.
Direct sunlight, or rather its excess and sunburn, are the cause of only a small percentage of skin cancer. Scientists believe that official medical propaganda should draw people's attention to the condition of the skin and recommend that those with a large number of moles on the body pay attention to this. After sunbathing, such people are advised to carefully examine moles and monitor changes in their size, color and shape.
The sooner such a change is detected, the faster the doctor will be able to remove such a mole and prevent the development of melanoma, which is one of the most dangerous forms of cancer. Its danger is due to the fact that it spreads to other organs of the body through a mole, which at first glance seems to be completely healthy. Even freckles on fair skin that are at risk of sunburn can be dangerous in this regard. Melanoma occurs in only 10% of skin cancers, but the cure rate is the lowest.
A team of researchers led by scientists from King's College London, which included scientists from Australia, Canada and the United States, came to the conclusion that even if a person does not have freckles and moles on his body, the sun's rays still pose a danger. It is well known that they can cause premature skin aging and wrinkles. Therefore, follow the principle of dosed use of sunbathing and pay more attention to your health, control the condition of your skin, and protect it, especially if you have to stay in the sun for a long time.
