Two recent studies have analysed the causal association of UVB on skin cancer. Half of melanomas resulted from moles thus making them a huge risk factor. Sunlight increases the number of moles and hence the risk. The studies revealed that UVB light alone resulted in more moles in mice than UVA or even full sunlight exposure. Irrespective of the results, researchers reiterate that people should always wear sun protection to prevent skin cancers.
