What usually happens when the rays hit our skin, they generate free radicals that can also harm your DNA. The rays that we are exposed to are made up of UVB and UVA rays. UVB rays are much shorter in wave length and don’t penetrate deep in the skin but can damage DNA. UVB rays are the main cause of
How Does the Sun Harm Us? The sun helps us in many ways from keeping our planet warm, giving us necessary vitamins and most importantly it causes photosynthesis in plants so they can give us oxygen but how does the sun harm us? The sun releases ultraviolet light photons that when come in contact with skin can cause painful sunburns in the short term and lead to life-threatening skin cancer in older age. However, sunburns and skin cancer can be prevented by following a few simple rules. The sun, as it shines down upon us it gives us vitamin D that is needed for normal bone formation but it in those warm rays there is ultraviolet light (UV-B and UV-A to be specific) that can not be seen by the human eye but are the reason behind sunburns.

According to SkinCancer.gov, children are in more in a risk to getting sunburned by the sun. “Sustaining five or more sunburns in youth increases
Ability of the cell to reproduce and survive might be affected as well. The probability of the DNA affected by the radiation is small because it is only a small part of the cell. However, since the human body cells are mostly making up of water, there is higher probability of radiation. The sensitivity of the cells’ exposure to radiation is not the same. Radiation which interacts with an active cell directly could result in the death or mutation of the cell, but there would be less effect if interacting with a dormant cell.
Although the company was launched in 1946, the brand could be dated back to the 1920s.

Test results can cause tension between family members; because not only can the tests reveal something about the patient, they can reveal information about people related to the patient… particularly information that makes people uncomfortable
If DNA is damaged by radiation, some chemical changes take part and lead to cancerous cells and the normal body function will be disturb. But our bodies are very unique and have ability to repair by itself. If the exposure to radiation is long and frequent expose to body, the chances to get cancer is high. Exposure of radiation will be divided into two types, chronic (long term) and acute (short term). Chronic exposure to radiation is a continuous
