UVR does not cause melanoma
Click on the link below to access our article titled "Melanoma and Tanning: Does exposure to sunlight, UVR or a tanning device cause cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM)?" if you want to know the truth about this important subject.
Remember, we will never get the vitamin D "message" accepted by the majority of the American public "unless and until" we refute the false, deceptive and misleading claim that sunlight, UVR and tanning devices cause melanoma. As long as people are afraid of melanoma, and believe that tanning causes this disease, we will not be able to convince the public that the controlled ultraviolet radiation exposure (CURE) available only at an indoor tanning salon is the "best way" to maintain an optimal level (i.e., >120 nmol/L) of vitamin D (25-OH-D).
