Do greenhouse gases cause skin cancer?



  1. 0 Votes

    Greenhouse gases, such as chlorofluorocarbons, can surely increase the risk of skin cancer. As these chemicals deplete the ozone layer, they allow ultraviolet radiation to reach the surface of the Earth, as opposed to being absorbed in the ozone layer. Increased ultraviolet radiation leads to an increase in skin cancer. UV radiation accounts for a 2% increase for every 1% decrease in the stratospheric ozone. Additionally, this could result in an increase of 70,000 skin cancer cases every year.
