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 dry.
2.It can aggregate to certain skin diseases and when combined with some commonly used medicine and chemicals can cause the skin to react abnormally to light.It can also affect the immune system and this may play a big role in skin cancer and some infectious diseases.
Long term effects. The long term effects include; 1.Skin cancer. There are two types of skin cancers; Melanoma skin cancers-it is much less common but it is the main cause of death from skin cancers. Non-melanoma skin cancers-they era the great majority of skin cancers and solar exposure is the main environmental factor in their development.
Next time round I will be looking at effects of solar radiation on people with dark coloured skin.
