Sun Exposure and Melanoma Risk

Reports from Norway and Spain indicate that increased exposure to sun increases the risk of melanoma in exposed areas but decreases the risk of melanoma in areas not exposed, such as vulvar melanoma. Other studies have indicated that higher serum levels of vitamin D result in improved survival in melanoma patients. This is another indication that Vitamin D is the “wonder drug” of the 21st century.
