Sunlight protects against cancer of the pancreas
By 49% compared to persons with less sensitive skin
The study made by the researcher Rachel Nyali from the Institute of Queensland Medical Research in Australia that the risk of pancreatic cancer decreased in people who have a history of cancer, skin as well as those born in areas with a high level of UV radiation or persons who are allergic to the sun.
The present study in addition to the many conflicting information on the impact of sun exposure on human health and vitamin D received by the body from the sun and the risk of cancer.
Nyali has supported a study of data that suggests that exposure to the sun gives the protectionist impact of cancer of the pancreas.
The researcher said that many of the studies on biology, including those conducted in Australia suggested that people who live in sunny areas always have a lower risk of pancreatic cancer.
While other studies of vitamin D to indicate that exposure to sunlight protects against cancer of the pancreas and that persons who have a high level of vitamin D are more susceptible to disease.
The experiment was conducted between 2007 and 2011, and included 714 people from the area of Queensland Australian who has been compared with a comparison of 709 people assimilated in age and gender.
The researchers found that those most sensitive to the sun have a lower risk of pancreatic cancer by 49% compared to persons with skin less sensitive to the sun.
The researchers also found that the risk of pancreatic cancer less than 40% among people who have a history of skin cancer or other skin diseases arising from exposure to sunlight.
