Does time spent in the sun increase your risk of getting skin cancer?

    Well when you think about it, skin cancer can be a result of your cells being damaged by the sun rays, so the longer you are in the sun, the more likely you are going to damage your cells. So yes, more sun exposure can put you at a higher risk of getting skin cancer.

    Yes… I found on WebMD that “Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers breakdown, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily — taking longer to heal.”

    So even though vitamin D is good for our bodies we can easily overdose on our sun exposure.

    Yes, the UV rays that the sun gives off will cause DNA and other damage, if proper protection isn’t used.
