Health Tip: Overexposed to the Sun

Health Tip: Overexposed to the Sun

10/28/10

(HealthDay News) -- Too much exposure to the sun and its ultraviolet rays can lead to skin cancer, eye damage and other health problems.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says UV rays can:

  • Lead to different types of skin cancer, including the most serious, melanoma.
  • Cause what looks like early aging and other changes in the skin's appearance.
  • Damage the eyes, including causing cataracts.
  • Suppress the immune system, resulting in reduced ability to fight off illness.
