Every person needs exposure to the sun, it's the primary source
for a human to get vitamin D which will help us accumulate calcium
for strong and healthy bones. However, you don't have to stay in
the sun for hours and hours each day to collect the Vitamin D you
need. If people stay outside in the sun for longer times whilst
being unprotected, people could develop drastic issues with your
health, the ultraviolet rays that the sun emits could cause skin
and eye damage, a weaker immune system, and even skin cancer, A
person of ANY age is affected by this, so make sure to look after
your kids well!
50 - 80% on average is the total amount of sun exposure a child
will accumulate before the age of 18! It is drastically important
that parents will teach their children how to protect themselves in
the sun, as nobody wants to damage their children, and want to
leave them to develop skin cancer at such an age.
Facts About Sun Exposure
The Sun emits light to earth, and the light comes in many
different rays, Ultraviolet rays are invisible, and deadly. When UV
rays reach your skin they will cause it to tan, burn, and possibly
give skin cancer.
Sunlight has three types of ultraviolet rays: UVA, UVB,
UVA rays cause skin aging and wrinkling and contribute to skin
cancer, such as melanoma. Because UVA rays pass effortlessly
through the ozone layer (the protective layer of atmosphere, or
shield, surrounding the earth), they make up the majority of our
sun exposure. Beware of tanning beds because they use UVA rays as
well as UVB rays. A UVA tan does not help protect the skin from
further sun damage; it merely produces colour and a false sense of
protection from the sun.
UVB rays are also dangerous, causing sunburns, cataracts
(clouding of the eye lens), and effects on the immune system. They
also contribute to skin cancer. Melanoma, the most dangerous form
of skin cancer, is thought to be associated with severe UVB
sunburns that occur before the age of 20. Most UVB rays are
absorbed by the ozone layer, but enough of these rays pass through
to cause serious damage.
UVC rays are the most dangerous, but fortunately, these rays are
blocked by the ozone layer and don't reach the earth.
What's important is to protect your family from exposure to UVA
and UVB, the rays that cause skin damage.
