Beschreibung:

Sun Protection differentiates itself from other texts by adopting a risk management approach to determine whether, how, and in what circumstances, harm might be caused, and to explore the feasibility of various strategies in controlling exposure to solar UV radiation. This multi-disciplinary book covers topics from climatology through human exposure to sunlight, as well as biological and clinical effects of UV radiation to physical and chemical strategies for photoprotection.

There is adequate evidence that exposure to solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a major aetiological factor in human skin cancer, but managing the risk of skin cancer does not necessarily mean avoiding exposure to the Sun’s UV rays. Sun Protection differentiates itself from other texts by adopting a risk management approach to determine whether, how, and in what circumstances, harm might be caused, and to explore the feasibility of various strategies in controlling exposure to solar UV radiation. This multi-disciplinary book covers topics from climatology through human exposure to sunlight, as well as biological and clinical effects of UV radiation to physical and chemical strategies for photoprotection.
