Abstract

The risk of developing skin cancer or sun-related eye disorders may be lowered by the reduction of human exposures to solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. There are also other determining factors such as genetic factors, however, both the total amount of sun received over the years, and over exposure resulting in sunburn increase the risk of skin cancer.
