Sunlight and vitamin D affect DNA damage, cell division and cell death in human lymphocytes: A cross-sectional study in South Australia
The ultraviolet (UV)-B spectrum in solar UV radiation is essential for stimulating the epidermal production of vitamin D but also damages DNA and causes cancer in exposed cells.We examined the role of solarUVin inducingDNAdamage inblood lymphocytes and the possible modulation of this damage by serum 25-hydroxy vitaminD(25(OH)D) in 207male and female participants from South Australia. Personal solar UVexposure was estimated from hours of outdoor exposure recalled at the time of blood collection...[Show more]
