Vulnerabilities

Year: 2007
From collection: Vital Ozone Graphics
Author: Emmanuelle Bournay, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Many people from the higher latitudes grill their skin intensely in the sun during their short summer holidays, but only get minimal exposure to the sun for the rest of the year. Such intermittent exposure to sunlight seems to be a risk factor. On the other hand populations with darker skin pigmentation regularly exposed to similar or even higher UV rays are less prone to skin damage.
