Sun exposure may increase risk of prostate cancer in the high UV environment of New South Wales, Australia: A case-control study
International Journal of Cancer, 04/26/2012NairShalliker V et al. –
The results suggest that increasing sun exposure in mid–adult years increases prostate cancer risk in a high ambient solar UV environment. Given that previous studies, conducted mainly in low solar UV environments, have generally found evidence of a negative association, the findings suggest there may be a U–shaped relationship between solar UV exposure and prostate cancer.
