Hello everyone today I will be looking at how the suns rays affect the Albinos. Skin cancers are the most common cancers among albinos in our environment. Albinism and exposure to ultraviolet light appears to be the most important risk factor in the development of these cancers. Early institution of preventive measures, early presentation and treatment, and follow-up should be encouraged in this population for better results. Sunburn, recognized by erythema and blistering, is the commonest...Read More...

Hello everyone today am looking at the effects of solar radiation on people with dark coloured skin. Dark complexions have both advantages and disadvantages when it comes to sun exposure. On one hand, dark skin is less likely to get sunburned and less likely to develop skin cancer. On the other hand, because dark skin naturally provides protection from the sun's ultraviolet rays, it prevents dark-skinned people from producing the necessary amount of vitamin D.(1) People who are at a high...Read More...

Hello everyone in this time round I have a new inquiry question which is;I wonder whether solar radiation has different health effects on people with different coloured skin Effects of solar radiation on people with light coloured skin. Short term effects . The short term effects of skin exposure to ultraviolet radiation include; 1.Sunburn-which is most intense 24 hours later repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation to obtain deeper causes the epidermis to thicken which the skin to feel...Read More...

UV rays and the skin.

Hello everyone today I will be discussing on how the sun affects our skin. Cell damage The solar radiation effects on the skin are greatly dependent on the type of rays (proportion of UVB and UVA), the amount and intensity of solar radiation and the stage at which the cells on the skin are in during their normal division and resuming an activity. Ultraviolet rays can have a number of effects within the cell including identified types of DNA harms in skin cells and, with extreme solar...Read More...

Hello everyone today I will be looking at how the skin can be damaged by solar radiation. Short term effects of skin exposures to ultraviolet radiation,particularly to UVB include surnbird,which is most intense 24hours later repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation to obtain a deeper tan causes the epidermis to thicken which results to skin feeling dry. Exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation can aggravate certain skin diseases and when combined with some commonly used medicine and...Read More...

Hello everyone today I will be doing research on solar radiation and agriculture. Solar panels are not the only things that convert solar radiation into energy. Plants have been doing this for billions of years. How can farmers make use of solar radiation data?Solar radiation is affected to a number of factors which are; 1.soil moisture 2.plants rate of evaporation. Soil moisture is basically the amount of water the soil contains. As a farmer, you wouldn't want to plant a crop that needs a...Read More...
Hello everyone today I will be discussing on the impact of solar radiation on human body. Exposure to solar radiation can have positive effects on the human body,but it can also cause damages and melanoma is the most significant among those.Severe essential procedures such as vitamin D synthesis are triggered by solar radiation.Also sun exposure can have beneficial effects on several diseases.both UVA and UVB are important for human health.Low levels of solar radiation are crucial for the...Read More...

Hello everyone today I will be researching on the beneficial and hazardous effects of solar radiation. HEALTH BENEFITS Humans require between 1,000 and 2,000 international units of vitamin D every day for good health health. Your skin brings vitamin D naturally when exposed to solar radiation, and spending 10 or 15 minutes a day outside may give you all your body requires to be healthy. If you cannot spend time outside, or if you live far away from the equator where sunlight is more diffuse,...Read More...

Hello everyone in my research I will be looking for more information about the incoming solar radiation on the earth's atmosphere Three atmospheric effects processes transform the amount of solar radiation arriving at the thin layer of gases that surrounds the earth intending for the earth's surface.These processes act on radiation when it acts reciprocally with gases and suspended particles found in the atmosphere.The process of scattering occurs when small particles and gas molecules...Read More...

Hello everyone in this research I will be discussing on the effects of solar radiation in the atmosphere. Solar radiation is absorbed and reflected back by the atmosphere resulting to phenomena that are of great importance to the maintenance of life on earth in the following ways; 1.The atmosphere acts as a filter,engrossing and reflecting amounts of the electromagnetic spectrum such as the ultraviolet region,that are likely to cause harm to humans and other life forms. 2.The atmosphere...Read More...

Hello everyone,today I will be looking at the factors that influence the amount of solar radiation reaching the earth's surface. The amount of solar radiation reaching the uppermost layer of the earth varies greatly because of changing atmospheric conditions and the changes of the position of the sun. For any given location, the solar radiation reaching the uppermost layer of the earth decreases with increasing cloud cover. Local geographical features,such as; mountains,oceans, and large...Read More...

Hello everyone,today I will be discussing about the benefits and effects of solar radiation and human health. The sun has played a major role in the development of life on earth.People have been warned against sun exposure because of it's adverse effects; for example erythema,photoimmonosuppression,photocarcinogenesis,cataracts and photokeratitis. However,sun exposure is also beneficial,since moderate doses give beneficial physiological effects these include;vitamin D synthesis,reduction of...Read More...
