Solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the main source of vitamin D production and also the most important environmental risk factor for skin cancer development. Vitamin D deficiency is a causal risk factor for several types of cancer. Since the dominant source of vitamin D is UV exposure, there is a need to understand what a balanced level of sun exposure is to maintain an adequate level of vitamin D with a minimal risk for skin cancer.
Our project deals with two major health effects of solar radiation: generation of vitamin D and induction of skin cancer. We want to contribute improving the public health strategies regarding sun exposure, skin cancer, vitamin D status and sun protection.
