Lower exposure to UVB light may increase colorectal cancer risk, study suggests

New Delhi :  Inadequate exposure to ultraviolet B (UVB) light from the sun may be associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer, particularly in older age groups, according to a collaborative study conducted by a team of international researchers using data on 186 countries. Lower UVB exposure was significantly correlated with higher rates of colorectal cancer across all age groups from 0 to over 75 years in people.

Raphael Cuomo, the co-author of the study, said: "Differences in UVB light accounted for a large amount of the variation we saw in colorectal cancer rates, especially for people over age 45. Although this is still preliminary evidence, it may be that older individuals, in particular, may reduce their risk of colorectal cancer by correcting deficiencies in vitamin D." The authors used UVB estimates obtained by the NASA EOS Aura spacecraft in April 2017 and data on colorectal cancer rates in 2018 for 186 countries from the Global Cancer (GLOBOCAN) database.
