Sunlight could be beneficial for melanoma. Contrary to what you’ve heard, the sun might not be the culprit for melanoma. In fact, it might be beneficial, as numerous studies suggest.

Recently, two more studies highlighted the advantages of sun exposure. Understandably, this revelation has left many scientists and dermatologists puzzled. How can the very thing they warned the public about — that the sun causes cancer — be proven incorrect?

One assessed the theory that UV radiation elevates your risk of developing lymphoma. However, after analyzing around 7,000 participants, the findings indicated the opposite: more sun exposure reduced the likelihood of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The second study explored the alleged connection between sun exposure and melanoma survival rates. The conclusion? More sun exposure seems to boost melanoma survival rates.
