Sunshine to Reduce Risk of Ovarian Cancer

 Natural sunlight is a vital to good health, including cancer prevention. The results of this study suggest that ovarian cancer risk is reduced when women are exposed to more sunshine. This has been demonstrated with several other cancers in the past.

"Association Between Ambient Ultraviolet Radiation and Risk of Epithelial Ovarian Cancer"


"Evidence is accumulating to suggest that higher exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is associated with decreased risk of internal cancers, but data for ovarian cancer are unclear. We aimed to examine the association between lifetime ambient UVR and ovarian cancer in a population-based case control study."

---> "These data suggest that exposure to ambient UVR may reduce the risk of ovarian cancer."
