    Sunlight contains / is UV radiation which fricks with the DNA in your skin cells. So yes, but as with all things, sola dosis facit venenum.

    Cancer is a metabolic disease. Even if you were tide down and forced to get ultra sunburn to the point where half your skin sloughs off, any cancer you develope is because of your preexisting mitochondrial dysfunction which was only exacerbated by the acute skin injury.

    Sort of. If you do get some sun it's better for you to take sunlight directly on your skin than through a window plus as long as it's not between 10am and 4pm you can go out without worrying about it

    Yes, as UV radiations can damage DNA directly, creating T-T dimers. Our body has protective mechanisms to repair these damages, but exposure to UV radiation cumulatively increases the chance of getting skin cancer. Also your skin color plays a role too, especially in white people as their skin doesn't produce as much melanin which protects against UV radiation damage

    Absolutely, it's not like diet influences how much you burn at all. Also no, your skin can't get used to it by exposing it bit by bit and getting accustomed to it. And it's not like all of your ancestors lived in the sun since the dawn of humanity.
    No no no. You need to buy the israeli chemicals and cover your skin with them or you'll literally burn and die cancer immediately. Don't forget your poliester swimming trunks

        You're forgetting that our ancestors didn't live as long as we do now

        Yeah due to plagues, lack of hygiene, wars and insane crime rates.
        You can't tell me that the human body hasn't adapted to the sun. The reason you get burned is because you spend hours every day in front of blue light of the computer, sitting inside, of course you get less resistant to the sun.

          You misunderstood my post, getting cancer is a probabilistic thing. First your DNA has to get hit by a UV ray and get damaged, then somehow the many protective mechanisms to repair DNA damage has to fail to repair the damage, and then, somehow the DNA region that got damaged has to be a critical region for oncogenesis. You'd have to be incredibly unlucky to get skin cancer in a young age unless you have some sort of genetic disposition. But as you age and get more and more exposure to UV rays the risk goes up. So as we live longer lives than our ancestors did we have to be more wary of skin cancer than them

      Your Black person ancestors perhaps
      My ancestors are white and have lived in Northern Europe for hundreds of thousands of years. They wore clothes and lived in the forests

        Your ancestors, like mine, came from the steppe, basking in the glorious sun as they slaughtered neolithic grain-sustained bughumans living in longhouses.

    Diet absolutely 100% influences how much you burn. Seed oils, citrus fruit, celery and similar plants make you photosensitive. It's established science.

    probably does. the best time to be in the sun is the middle of the day. try to limit your exposure though. I wear more clothing when I have to work in the sun for hours.
